Peugeot 2008 - MPG, CO2 and running costs

The regular Peugeot 2008 is frugal, but insurance costs are higher than rivals, and the electric version depreciates heavily

Insurance group

2008 1.2 PureTech 100




2008 1.2 PureTech 130




2008 1.2 Hybrid 136 e-DSC6




The most efficient Peugeot 2008 is the Hybrid 136 version, which returns up to 62.1mpg and emissions as low as 102g/km. That’s followed by the entry-level 99bhp version with fuel economy of 53.2mpg and emissions of 120g/km of CO2. The 129bhp petrol model is almost as good in six-speed manual form, achieving 52.7mpg and 125g/km, while pairing that engine with the automatic transmission drops the figures to up to 48.9mpg and 133g/km.

The regular PureTech petrol engines compare well with rivals, while the mild-hybrid adds a small electric motor that provides some low-speed electric driving potential, or a short burst of electrical assistance when accelerating to reduce the load on the engine, helping to save fuel and reduce emissions.

Electric range, battery and charging


Battery size


Insurance group

E-2008 50kWh 136

47.7kWh (useable)

214 miles


E-2008 54kWh 156

50.8kWh (useable)

250 miles


The standard E-2008 uses a 50kWh battery (47.7kWh useable), which provides up to 214 miles of electric range, plus there’s a larger capacity 54kWh (50.8kWh useable) alternative with an increased maximum range to 250 miles – around 16 miles further than the base Hyundai Kona Electric can cover on a charge. Fully recharging both battery sizes using a standard 7kW home wallbox takes just over 7.5 hours, while a 10 to 80 per cent takes around 30 minutes from a 100kW rapid charger.


Rivals with hybrid power, like the Toyota Yaris Cross and Renault Captur E-Tech, offer higher fuel efficiency and produce less CO2, which means they also have the added benefit of lower Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) company car tax rates. Of course, if you’re interested in a 2008 to run as a company car, the all-electric Peugeot E-2008 may be the one to go for because, like all EVs, it currently attracts a mere two per cent BiK rate.

Insurance groups

The 2008 has slightly higher-than-average insurance group ratings compared with rivals. The base Active model with the 99bhp petrol sits in group 12 – one group higher than the base Yaris Cross and three groups higher than the entry-level SEAT Arona.

The better-equipped Allure and GT land in group 16, while the entry-level E-2008 sits in group 25. In contrast, a 1.0-litre 155 Ford Puma Titanium with 153bhp receives a much lower group 14 rating.

Residual values for the petrol and hybrid versions of the second-generation Peugeot 2008 are on a par with most of its rivals, with our expert data suggesting that it will retain between 51 to 53 per cent of its value after three years and 36,000 miles of ownership. The Ford Puma is expected to retain between 52 to 55 per cent of its original value over the same time period. 

The all-electric E-2008 is only predicted to be worth 37-39 per cent of its original after three years, however. This is very disappointing compared to the BYD Atto 3, which will hold on to roughly 48 per cent of its resale value, or the Kia Niro EV, which will hold on to up to 55 per cent of its value.
