Peugeot plans to launch the all-electric e-3008 in autumn 2023. The electric SUV will sit on the new all-electric platform eVMP and feature battery cells from Automotive Cell Company (ACC), the joint venture from Total and PSA subsidiaries Saft and Opel.

The French news outlet L’Argus reported the plans, quoting Yann Vincent, the Managing Director at Automotive Cells Company. Vincent told the news site that the eVMP platform, announced for the first time this summer, will be equipped with ACC batteries made in Douvrin in northern France.
