Peugeot E-2008 GT MCA Launched in Singapore

Refresh brings a number of changes to the E-2008.

Regular readers may remember that we tested the Peugeot e-2008 GT back in December 2022. Here we are in March 2024 with a Mid Cycle Action (MCA), or a refresh or facelift. The main reason behind this shorter-cycle refresh is as plain as the E-2008’s face.

Sporting Peugeot’s new emblem, the new front end is now wider and includes a specific lateral pattern that connects to the headlamps. The grille features a vertical pattern in the same colour as the bodywork, which extends to subtle dark inserts.

Being body-coloured, the pattern of the grille also better integrates into the front bumper.

Also new at the front-end is the new Peugeot Signature Light. Where the predecessor had three vertical daytime running lights in the headlight itself and extending down to one in the front bumper, the MCA has three vertical claw daytime running lights in the bumper itself.

In the E-2008 GT, the striking effect of the three claws is extended in the lighting of the full LED headlamps through the use of three light modules. This distinguishes the E-2008 GT from the rest of the range with an exclusive front-end signature.

This three-claw design theme carries on in the back of the SUV with the taillights. Three superimposed horizontal double slats contrast with the predecessor’s three diagonal items, and offer a refreshed look.

Along with the taillights, reverse and turn-signal lights are also LED items.

Six body colours will be available for the MCA’d E-2008 GT, namely Selenium Grey, Artense Grey, Okenite White, Black Perla Nera, Elixir Red and Vertigo Blue.

Also new is its battery pack. Where the predecessor had a 50kW item, this refresh brings an additional 4kW to the E-2008. The claimed WLTP range increases from 345km to 436km, which is heartwarming to know and something we’ll be testing during our review drive.

Furthermore, this E-2008 is equipped with a high-performance 100kW DC / 11 kW AC on-board charger.

Charging the car from 0% to 80% on a DC 100kW charger is said to take just 30 minutes. Something else that we’ll test when we get behind the wheel.

A feature we really liked with the predecessor is also here – the 3D holographic digital instrument panel.

The infotainment features a 10-inch high-definition touchscreen, and comes standard with wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Screen.

Active safety features include automatic hands-free access with walkaway auto-lock, VisioPark 180° Reverse Camera, lane departure warning and speed limit information with intelligent speed adaptation.

As of writing this article, the E-2008 GT is set to retail for $153,888. For more information, contact Peugeot Singapore.
