Important!

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection Never leave the engine running in a closed space without sufficient ventilation. Internal combustion engines emit toxic exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide. Danger of poisoning and death!

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection In very severe wintry conditions (temperature below -23°C), let the engine run for 4 minutes before moving off, to ensure the correct operation and durability of the mechanical components of your vehicle (engine and gearbox).

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection Never drive with the parking brake applied. Risk of overheating and damaging the braking system!

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection Do not park the vehicle or leave the engine running on a flammable surface (e.g. dry grass, dead leaves). The vehicle exhaust system is very hot, even several minutes after the engine stops. Risk of fire!

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection Never leave a vehicle unattended with the engine running. If you have to leave your vehicle with the engine running, apply the parking brake and put the gearbox or drive selector into neutral or position N or P (depending on version).

On flooded roads

We strongly advise against driving on flooded roads, as this could cause serious damage to the engine or gearbox, as well as to the electrical systems of your vehicle.

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection

If you are obliged to drive on a flooded road:

On leaving the flooded road, as soon as safety conditions allow, make several light brake applications to dry the brake discs and pads.

If in doubt about the state of your vehicle, contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop.

Noise (Electric)

On the outside

Due to the vehicle’s quiet operation when driving, the driver should pay particular attention.

At speeds of up to 19 mph (30 km/h), the pedestrian horn warns other road users of the vehicle’s presence.

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection Cooling the traction battery

The cooling fan comes on during charging to cool the on-board charger and the traction battery.

On the inside

During use, you may hear certain perfectly normal noises specific to electric vehicles, such as:

Towing

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection Driving with a trailer places greater demands on the towing vehicle and particular care must be taken.

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection Do not exceed the maximum towable weights.

At altitude: reduce the maximum load by 10% per 1,000 metres of altitude; the lower air density at high altitudes decreases engine performance.

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection New vehicle: do not tow a trailer until the vehicle has driven at least 620 miles (1,000 kilometres).

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection If the outside temperature is high, let the engine idle for 1 to 2 minutes after the vehicle comes to a stop, to help it to cool.

Before setting off

Nose weight

Tyres

Lighting

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection If a genuine PEUGEOT towing device is used, the rear parking sensors will be deactivated automatically to avoid the audible signal.

When driving

Cooling

Towing a trailer uphill causes the coolant temperature to increase. The maximum towable load depends on the gradient and the exterior temperature. The fan’s cooling capacity does not increase with engine speed.

In all cases, pay attention to the coolant temperature.

Peugeot 2008. Driving recommendations. Anti-theft protection If this warning lamp and the STOP warning lamp come on, stop the vehicle and switch off the engine as soon as possible.

Brakes

Braking distances are increased when towing a trailer. To avoid overheating the brakes, the use of engine braking is recommended.

Side wind

Bear in mind that the vehicle will be more susceptible to wind when towing.

Anti-theft protection

Electronic immobiliser

The keys include an electronic engine immobiliser system, with a code that must be recognised in order for starting to be possible.
