Peugeot E-2008 GT SUV MY23 (Orange Fusion) from $39,990 Driveaway @ Peugeot


This was a $64,990 DA car a month ago, a huge $25k price drop. To be fair this was more like a $50k car with a 65k RRP but now selling for 40k.

To put into perspective there’s only 2 EVs sub 40k DA on market, base level MG4 and GWM Ora.

This is easily the more premium of the 2.

I’ve given this a test drive, although it’s not as punchy as the MG4 it’s a nicer drive and has a much more premium feel and more features such as sunroof.

      Peugeot naming the car:
      First number is the size of the car, last number is the gen of the car. One zero in the centre is old model, two zero is more modern.

      • +8

        Thought 2 zero is for suv.

      • +2

        00 for SUV.
        0 for everything else.

      • Last number as gen of car doesn't apply to the 308 for example, which has now been used for 3 generations.

            @Bimbobob: They don’t design French cars for Australia.
            We are a very small market.
            stellantis have to make cheap EVs to average out the fleet emissions in the eu as the expensive ones are not selling because of the cheaper Chinese EVs.
            It costs millions to develop a car, selling a few more in Australia helps to repay the development costs.

              • +2

                @DrScavenger: How many reasons do you want to not buy anything Chinese when you have an option such as cars are built with slave labour, you are supporting a country that is building its military against us, they have tried to attack our economy, they continually attack us and manipulate our free world in the cyberspace, they have just sentenced an Australian to death, there human rights issues are horrible right now, they attack our military and ignore international rules, you are supporting Russia, etc,etc.

                • @Rally Dave: We attacked their economy to please our American masters. USA can do whatever TF they want. They are safe far away with a huge landmass economy and population. We have none of those. We need to look for as good relations as possible with China.

                  If slave labour is bad rest assured a lot of American companies use that Labor in China such as Apple. Are they strengthening their enemy too now? If you don't like Chinese manufacturing you will support Indian or Bengali one which are worse.

                  "International rules" only when it benefits us the western world.

              @Aureus: Going against the grain here, but I owned a Peugeot 308SW 2.0L for maybe 12 years, and the only thing that went wrong with it was a hole in the radiator (not really a fault with the car, more like a stone piercing it) that was a $200 part that I swapped in the garage and it two top engine mounts (about $40 a go from the eBay UK).

              Super reliable, has excellent visibility, is comfortable, nice car to drive.

              I'm looking for a 2nd hand 3008 (Diesel and around 2020 model),
              so, I'm really curious to know your issues.

              • +9

                @whyisave: Ours is the petrol variant, the plastics in the engine bay are garbage and/or not tolerant of our heat (Brisbane) so the windscreen reservoir cap has cracked (i am the only on who fills it lol so i know it wasnt human incurred).

                Right as i type this i am passenger and the wife just applied the brakes a little with my window cracked and a big stream of water drenched the inner door panel.

                The petrol is pretty gutless, the car just cut out pulling up to a set of lights a couple weeks back (unable to get solid diagnoses so we replaced battery and just hoping that was it even though the batt tested fine).
                It has had both upper control arms replaced, all rotors and some front end bushes at 60 thousand k’s. That was $2.8k. They wouldnt cover under warranty.

                We has a rocker cover oil leak around the spark plugs, the water pump bearings are a known issue and just overall I hate this car.

                So yeah. Never again

                  @Andoes: Thank you, for your insight.

                  I've driven Euro cars over the past 20-years,
                  and I can agree with your sentiments,
                  because I've endured the faults, the breakages
                  and then all the time spent figuring out how to $ave the cost of repair.

                  Maybe the Euro cars don't handle the the Australian climate
                  and also, the Euro cars / parts are classed as "luxury car" status,
                  so it attracts a premium 'unnecessarily'.

                  Still, I have attractions to Euro cars, like a moth to a flame,
                  as I feel the driving experience is better in a Euro car
                  and there is some "pleasure" of being on the road, when in one.

      My guess is that they chose an uglier colour as the starting colour so more people would opt for the better colours such as white or gray. Also why does the website look so bad. You'd think for how much they earn yearly, they can afford a better looking website

      • Technically the delusion is beneficial. If Chinese cars are less popular it means they need to price it more competitively, which ultimately helps those that understands its value

        So wouldn't buy Chinese crap and also have enough ethical values to not support China and the use of slave labour to build cars, support Russia and attack and manipulate Australia
