French automaker Peugeot is working on its latest 2023 Peugeot 2008. The first Peugeot 2008 was released in 2013 followed by the next car that is presently around after a gap of six years. The upcoming car is all set to replace the current model with a modified powertrain and subtle styling changes.

The petrol variant of the car will sport two 1.2-liters Puretech turbo petrol engines. One of the engines will deliver 127bho power while the other engine will have a lesser power of 98bhp. There will also be an option to choose between a six-speed manual transmission and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
As for the electric model, the upcoming car will house a more powerful electric motor with 153bhp, a huge 54kWh battery that has been used by the manufacturer earlier in the revised Peugeot e-208. This will boost the efficiency of the 2023 Peugeot 2008 by 18%, allowing it to offer 252 miles of range. The car will support 7.4kW and 11kW on-board chargers. With a 7.4kW home charger, the battery will charge from 0% to 80% in seven and a half hours. On the other hand, a 100kW rapid charger will help the battery attain the same charge in just half an hour.
