Approximately 258,460 units of the Peugeot 3008 SUV rolled out the doors of PSA Group’s Sochaux plant last year, making it the most produced car in France in 2018.
The Peugeot 3008 edged out the second place Toyota Yaris at 248,541 units. Some 1,000 units of the 3008 are produced every day, seven days a week, at the Sochaux plant, which has manufactured over 23 million cars in its history.
The second-generation 3008 is based on Peugeot’s Efficient Modular Platform (EMP2) underpinnings, also shared with the 308 hatch and 408 sedan models.
Locally, the Peugeot 3008 is available in two trim levels, starting at RM141,888 and is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre (THP) engine which produces 167 PS and 240 Nm of torque. The engine sends power to a 6-speed automatic that drives the front wheels. The locally supplied Peugeot 3008 SUV is fully-imported (CBU) from France.
