Peugeot’s Mysterious Crossover Targeted Using Lots of Body Covers

Posted on

Sometimes there are vehicles that even make our spies stop, and this is an example. They believe this is a brand new 2008 Peugeot but not too sure.

The mystery is understandable because this vehicle uses a lot of concealment. The only indication that it is a Peugeot is the brand’s lion logo visible on the center cap of the rear wheel. The headlights and part of the grille are barely visible. Otherwise, the rest of the exterior has panels that hide everything. Aside from looking at the general shape of the crossover, the styling details are still a mystery.

Peugeot has just announced the E-Lion Project with a goal of launching five EVs in the next two years. Plus, it intends to introduce a new 48-volt hybrid system for other vehicles.

EVs include the E-308, E-308 SW, E-408, E-3008, and E-5008. The E-308 and E-308 SW will be available with a 156-horsepower (115-kilowatt) electric motor and will have a projected range of over 248 miles (400 kilometers).

In the second half of 2023, Peugeot will launch the E-3008 as an electric crossover. The company will offer it with three powertrains, including a dual-motor configuration. The projected range will be 434 miles (700 kilometers). The model will use the Stellantis STLA Medium platform.

The hybrid technology will work with Peugeot’s PureTech petrol engine. An electric motor producing 28 hp (21 kW) is integrated into the six-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The system arrives first for 208, 2008, 308, 3008, 5008, and 408 in 2023.

By 2030, Peugeot intends for all of its models in Europe to be EVs

In January, Peugeot unveiled the Inception Concept to look into the brand’s future style language. It featured a chiselled appearance and a large greenhouse. Inside, the model has a rectangular video game-inspired steering wheel. Production vehicles with this look start arriving in 2025.
