Aoife Raftery unveils all-new Peugeot E-3008 at Peugeot Ireland dealer conference



Galway rally driver Aoife Raftery unveiled the all-new Peugeot E-3008 at the annual Peugeot Dealers Conference at the Druids Glen Hotel and Golf Resort recently.



Peugeot Ireland revealed the new all-electric E-3008, featuring an aerodynamic fastback SUV design, a new electric powertrain offering up to 527 km of range and Peugeot’s latest Panoramic i-Cockpit at the special event at the famed County Wicklow venue.


It was the first time the Peugeot E-3008 was presented to the Irish Peugeot dealer network.



The new E-3008, which has just gone on sale in Ireland, will replace the best-selling Peugeot 3008, a car that has impressed more than 1,320,000 customers in 130 countries for seven years.


By 2025, Peugeot will offer a complete battery electric line-up, and by 2030, 100% of the brand’s sales in Europe will be electric.



Raftery, from Craughwell, is competing in the FIA Junior European Rally Championship, at the wheel of a Peugeot 208 Rally4, this year.



Following a successful debut season in 2023, she returned to the Junior FIA European Rally Championship this season in a PCRS Rallysport-prepared Peugeot 208 Rally4.


The first and so far, only female driver to be selected by the Motorsport Ireland Rally Academy,  put in strong performances in Hungary and the Canary Islands already this season.



She is currently third in the championship and is looking forward to round three, the Royal Rally of Scandinavia in Sweden in mid-June.


Delighted to accept the offer from Peugeot Ireland to unveil the all-new Peugeot E-3008 she had the honour of being one of the first people in the country to experience the new car.



She said: “I was very impressed with the all-new E-3008, the unique Panoramic i-Cockpit is something special, and the driving position feels very good. The best advice I can give after driving this amazing car is to get down to your local Peugeot dealer and book a test drive as soon as possible. You won’t be disappointed.”
