It is due here next spring but no indication yet of price or specification.
The 700km claim – highlighted here last week – is sure to be a major talking point as it must surely banish all but the most severe cases of range anxiety.
Peugeot says it has “transformed” the car in terms of design and electric performance.
It is regarded by the company as a major step in its radical shift into a 100pc electric brand.
Outside is a fresh mix of curves and straight lines, while inside there is the latest panoramic i-Cockpit.
The current model won over a lot of buyers with its design and the innovative i-Cockpit mix of small steering wheel and clever positioning of dials and screens.
It has sold 1,320,000 models in 130 countries over the past seven years.
Peugeot aims to have a complete EV line-up as soon as 2025 and all its sales will be electric by 2030.
This E-3008 is the first to use the Stellantis brand’s STLA Medium platform.
It has been designed to allow longer range (up to 700km), recharge time (30 minutes) and performance.
Full details of prices/specification levels will be announced later this year.
What we do know is there will be two trim levels: Allure and GT, and three option packs.
And there will be three electric powertrains.
Model with a range of 525km, with two-wheel drive and delivering 210bhp/157kW.
Dual Motor model with range of 525km, 4-wheel drive, 320bhp/240kW.
Long Range version capable of 700km, two-wheel drive, 230bhp/170kW.
There will also be hybrid powertrains.
The Panoramic i-Cockpit includes a “floating” curved 21ins HD screen that combines the head-up display with the central touchscreen.
The central part of the dash has i-Toggles, touch-sensitive buttons that can be programmed to provide quick access to 10 of the user’s favourite functions.
The tiny steering wheel has been revised and now houses new controls. These automatically detect your fingers, but are only activated when you press them.
The Drive Assist Plus system is a step towards semi-autonomous driving.
It helps you by sourcing and using all the car’s sensors (cameras, radar, etc) and information from the navigation system.
Elements include Adaptive cruise control with a Stop & Go function and lane-keeping assist, semi-automatic lane change and early speed recommendation.
Active safety systems include Active lane departure warning with lane departure correction, driver attention alert, extended recognition with digital display of road signs, long-range blind-spot monitoring, hill descent control and advanced traction control.
The 400V high-voltage lithium-ion battery slots under the floor pan.
The charging socket on the left rear wing has Mode 2/3 (alternating current) and Mode 4 (direct current) connections.
For AC charging, there are two types of on-board charger.
An 11kW three-phase charger is standard while a 22kW three-phase charger is optional.
If you are DC recharging and using a supercharger, the Mode 4 socket accepts a power rating up to 160kW.
That enables the standard range battery to be recharged from 20pc to 80pc in 30 minutes for the standard version.
It takes under 30 minutes for the Long Range version to recharge.
Peugeot says that more than 500kg of green materials are used throughout the vehicle.
Green steel and aluminium represent 60pc of the total mass of green materials.
More than 30 polymer parts are produced with green materials.
And recycled plastic is used in bumpers, spoilers, storage bins and carpets.
It will be interesting to see what the starting price will be on and, crucially, how close it can get to 700kms on the Long Range model.
