Peugeot 2008: Practical information / Charging system (Electric)

400  V electrical system

The electrical traction system, which operates at a voltage of approximately 400 V, is identified by orange cables, and its components are marked with this symbol:

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric)

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) An electric vehicle’s power train can become hot during use and after switching off the ignition.

Observe the warning messages shown on labels, particularly inside the flap.

All work on or modifications to the vehicle’s electrical system (including the traction battery, connectors, orange cables and other components visible from the interior or exterior) is strictly prohibited - risk of severe burns or potentially fatal electric shock (short-circuit/electrocution)!

In the event of a problem, always contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) This label is intended solely for use by firefighters and maintenance services in the event of any work on the vehicle.

No other person must touch the device shown on this label.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) In the event of an accident or impact

The electrical system or the traction battery may be seriously damaged in the event of an accident or impact involving the vehicle underbody.

Stop as soon as it is safe to do so and switch off the ignition.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop without delay.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) In the event of exposure to a fire

Immediately exit and evacuate all passengers from the vehicle. Never attempt to fight the fire yourself - risk of electrocution!

You must immediately contact the emergency services, informing them that the incident involves an electric vehicle.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) When washing

Before washing the vehicle, always check that the charging flap is closed correctly.

Never wash the vehicle while the battery is on charge.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) High-pressure washing

To avoid damaging electrical components, it is expressly prohibited to use high-pressure washing to clean the front compartment or the vehicle underbody.

Do not use a pressure greater than 80 bar when washing the bodywork.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) Never allow water or dust to enter the connector or charging nozzle - risk of electrocution or fire!

Never connect / disconnect the charging nozzle or cable with wet hands - risk of electrocution!

Traction battery

This battery stores the energy that powers the electric motor and the thermal comfort equipment in the passenger compartment. It is discharged during use, and must therefore be regularly recharged. There is no need to wait for the traction battery to fall to its reserve level before recharging.

Battery life may vary according to the type of driving, the route, thermal comfort equipment usage and battery component ageing.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) The traction battery ageing process is influenced by multiple factors, including climate conditions, the distance travelled and how often it has been fast-charged.

Peugeot 2008. Charging system (Electric) In the event of damage to the traction battery

It is strictly prohibited to work on the vehicle yourself.

Do not touch liquids coming from the battery, and in the event of skin contact with these products, wash abundantly with water and contact a doctor as soon as possible.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop to have the system checked.
