The Peugeot 3008 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is a stylish family SUV that boasts a well-designed cabin. Open the flap that is positioned above the car’s nearside rear wheel arch and you’ll discover the socket which is used to charge the car’s battery. This can be done via a domestic mains supply – or at one of nearly 12,000 public charging points located around the UK. Alternatively, with a 7.4kW wall box, the battery can be replenished from zero to 100 percent in less than two hours. With a full charge, the 3008 is capable of an electric-only range of 30 miles.
It’s hard not to be won over by the 3008 PHEV’s design. It combines a sporty stance with muscular proportions to hold its own on any road, and the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit is beautifully done with classy materials, ergonomics and technology.
Whether you drive in hybrid mode or in full EV mode, the 3008 PHEV is smooth and responsive. It’s a brilliant cruiser and even Allure models come with a 180° colour reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors and the Safety Plus pack.
The 3008 PHEV has comfortable accommodation for five adult passengers and dual ISOFIX mounting points on the rear seats. The HYBRID4 has a 357-litre boot while the HYBRID has a 395-litre boot, which is plenty enough for your shopping.
It’s efficient, it’s fast and it’s beautiful. Some might say it’s the perfect car. GT models boast adaptive cruise control with stop and go, a foot-operated smart electric tailgate and beautiful Nappa Mistral full grain leather upholstery.
The Peugeot 3008 PHEV comes with Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star crash-test rating and a host of safety features. Any young ones on board will be kept very secure thanks to the inclusion of three rear-mounted ISOFIX child-seat fixtures and tamper proof rear doors and locks, among other things. And the driver has a number of useful technologies at his or her disposal, such as programmable Cruise Control with Speed Limiter, which allows for a maximum speed to be set before each trip.
