Never has a Stella been so significant. No, not a pint of Belgium’s finest enjoyed at 6am in Luton airport to kick-start the holiday of a lifetime, but rather Stellantis’s new STLA (pronounced ‘Stella’ – geddit?) architecture.

It’s going to underpin two million cars per year from the diverse brands within the Stellantis stable and the first of them is the Peugeot e-3008. Given the current Peugeot 3008 has been a phenomenal success for Peugeot since its 2017 launch, selling 1.3 million units in 130 countries, the pressure is on the new car to not just keep that run of form going but also to ensure sound fundamentals for so many other models to come.

The e-3008 launches at a similar time to another car fitting that description, the Renault Scenic, and has a broad spread of rivals ranging from the likes of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 to the Tesla Model Y.
