The company did not specify whether it would assemble the e-2008 locally or sell it as a Full Onboard (CBU) car like the MG ZS EV. This will determine the price of the e-2008, which will be an important factor in determining its demand in Pakistan.

Another all-electric electric car in Pakistan is the MG ZS, which is unpopular due to its inflated price and limited use. The Peugeot 2008 is already as expensive as a petrol car and will likely be even more expensive as an electric car. Therefore, e-2008 is likely to suffer the same fate as its Pakistani rival.
