Peugeot 2008: Driving / Drive selector (Electric)

Peugeot 2008 2019-2022 Owner's Manual / Driving / Drive selector (Electric)

The drive selector is a pulse selector with a regenerative braking function.

The drive selector provides traction control based on the driving style, the road profile and the vehicle load.

With regenerative braking activated, it also manages engine braking when the accelerator pedal is released.

P. Park

For parking the vehicle: the front wheels are blocked.

R. Reverse gear

N. Neutral

For moving the vehicle with the ignition off and allowing it to free-wheel.

For more information on Changing to free-wheeling, refer to the corresponding section.

D/B. Automatic forward drive (D) or automatic forward drive with regenerative braking (B)

Information displayed on the instrument panel

When the ignition is switched on, the drive selector status is displayed on the instrument panel:

P : Park.

R : Reverse.

N : Neutral.

D : Automatic forward drive.

B : Automatic forward drive with regenerative braking activated.

A. Button  P

  • To put the gearbox into Park mode.

B. Unlock button

  • To unlock the selector and come out of  P or change to  R, with the foot on the brake pedal.
  • Press and hold this button before pushing the selector.

C. Selector state indicators (R, N, D/B)

  • Move the selector by pushing it forwards (N or R) or backwards (N or D/B) once or twice, passing the point of resistance if necessary.

The push selector returns to its initial position when released.

For example, to change from  P to  R, either push forwards twice without passing the point of resistance or push just once, passing the point of resistance:

  • In the first case, the selector goes from  P to  N, then from  N to  R.
  • In the second case, the selector goes directly from  P to  R.

Regenerative braking

The regenerative braking function emulates engine braking, slowing the vehicle with no need to depress the brake pedal. When the driver releases the accelerator pedal, the vehicle slows down more quickly and recharges the battery.

  • From mode  D/B, moving the push selector backwards activates/deactivates the function.

The D on the instrument panel is replaced with a B.
