Read the review:

Peugeot has been pushing itself upmarket for quite a while now, with models like its E-3008 edging into premium price territory where the likes of Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Tesla and Volvo normally fight it out.

Now it’s the turn of the Peugeot E-5008. This is the all-new successor to Peugeot’s popular, seven-seat family SUV, and it sits on an extended version of the STLA platform that also lurks beneath the 3008. At 4.8m long, 1.9m wide and 1.7m tall it’s a bit bigger than a Mercedes EQB but smaller than the Kia EV9, which are (apart from the left-hand drive only Tesla Model X) the only other electric seven-seaters you can currently buy.

As for the looks? The high waist and pronounced shoulders of the E-5008 give it a presence which says you are an exciting parent who does interesting things at the weekend, so that you can feel good about yourself even while you do the inevitable tedious taxi runs that parenting mostly consists of.

The 73kWh battery in the E-5008 is offered with two powertrains; a single, 211bhp motor that drives the front wheels, or a dual motor, all-wheel drive model with 318bhp. Both manage a WLTP range of up to 311 miles, although that figure for the all-wheel drive model is still awaiting approval. The 98kWh battery is only offered with that single motor, front-wheel drive setup, for a claimed range of 410 miles.

Charging is up to 160kW at a rapid charger, which is good for a 62-mile top-up in 10 minutes or an 80% charge in around 30 minutes. AC charging peaks at 11kW as standard, or can optionally be boosted to 22kW, although most owners will charge at home using a 7kW charger (the fastest charge that you can support at most domestic properties in the UK), which will manage a full charge in around 11- to 15 hours depending on the battery size. You have to pay extra for an efficiency-boosting heat pump, though.
