On 27 November 2023, the 59 members of the European Car of the Year (COTY) jury, representing 22 countries across the continent, chose the new PEUGEOT E-3008 from 28 shortlisted models to join the final seven contenders for the top prize. This is the 7th time in the last 10 years that a PEUGEOT model has been selected as a finalist.

There are no categories, subdivisions or classes. There can only be one Car Of The Year winner, and the winner of the 2024 edition will be announced on the 26th of February in Geneva (Switzerland).

With the new E-3008, PEUGEOT has joined the exclusive list of other Peugeot finalists for the European Car of the Year award. The new 408 was chosen at the end of 2022, the 308 at the end of 2021, the 208 at the end of 2019 (winner in 2020), the 508 (Hatchback and SW) at the end of 2018, the 3008 at the end of 2016 (winner in 2017) and the previous generation 308 (Hatchback and SW) at the end of 2013 (winner in 2014).

The COTY award is the most coveted in the automotive industry. Its 59 judges hail from 22 European countries. They each chose their 7 finalists in an initial vote from a long list of 28 contenders.

The new PEUGEOT E-3008, the Next-Level Electric Fastback SUV, has been upscaled thanks to Stellantis’ brand new STLA-Medium platform which debuts with the PEUGEOT E-3008. This innovative platform has been designed to be the best-in-class for the criteria most important to customers: range (up to 700 km), recharge time (100 km in 10 minutes), driving pleasure, performance, design efficiency (less than 14kWh / 100km) and connected services (Trip Planner, Smart charging, remote functions and ‘Over-The-Air’ updates).

The new PEUGEOT Panoramic i-Cockpit® enhances driving pleasure with a spectacular 21” curved floating HD screen that brings together the head-up display and the central touchscreen.

The new PEUGEOT E-3008 will be produced exclusively at the Sochaux plant in France and will be available to order in Ireland in early 2024.

By 2025, PEUGEOT have the ambition to become the EV leader in Europe. The PEUGEOT E-3008, which further enhances the Allure of PEUGEOT, is at the heart of their EV brand strategy, which consists of nine passenger cars and three LCVs, and makes it the widest and the most efficient line-up of any mainstream brand.
