Peugeot e-2008 running costs & insurance

The Peugeot e-2008 is more expensive than its petrol counterpart, but it’s competitively priced compared to rivals and should be cheap to run

While more than £33,000 may sound like a lot for a compact SUV, there's no avoiding the fact the e-2008 is an impressively practical electric car with a generous kit list. The cheaper updated MG ZS EV matches the Peugeot for quality, however, and beats it for range.

Charging the e-2008 will cost roughly £7.00 on the average domestic electricity tariff, although using off-peak tariffs (you can set the car to charge at certain hours) could more than halve that cost. Translating that to real-world range, it’s feasible a comparable petrol model could cost three times as much on fuel alone.

Peugeot e-2008 insurance group

The e-2008 falls into insurance groups 25 to 27, depending on the exact specification chosen; this slightly undercuts its premium DS 3 Crossback E-TENSE sibling, which starts in group 29.

Warranty

Peugeot offers a three-year/60,000-mile warranty, which is industry standard but still disappointing next to the longer guarantees offered by rivals like Renault, Kia and Hyundai. The Peugeot’s battery is covered separately for eight years and 100,000 miles; it'll be refurbished for free if it drops below 70% of its as-new performance during that time.

Servicing

With long service intervals of two years or 16,000 miles, Peugeot estimates servicing costs will be 30% cheaper for the electric 2008 than for its petrol and diesel-engined counterparts. Each service tends to cost around £200, and there are fixed-price packages available.

Road tax

As with any pure-electric car, the e-2008 is free from vehicle excise duty (VED), or road tax as it’s also known. It gets free entry into the London Congestion Charge zone until 2025, too.
