PEUGEOT WORLD-WIDE SALES INCREASE BY 15% IN THE FIRST HALF OF 2017
With 1,025 000 units sold by end of June and a 15% increase in world-wide sales, PEUGEOT's performance is excellent. The brand is on track to meet its target figure of 2 million vehicle sales in 2017.
Group sales outside Europe rose by 46%. They now account for 41% of group sales worldwide, which is in line with the 2017 objective of achieving 45% of sales outside Europe and with the commitment to reaching 50% of sales outside Europe by 2020.
This sales performance is driven by the entire model range.
The new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, which has received 28 awards including the prestigious "2017 Car of The Year" award has beaten all records in terms of the international order book with 205,000 orders since launch and 114,900 sales in the first half-year.
This success has spilled over on to the other SUVs in the range. For the first half of 2017, PEUGEOT 2008 is n° 2 in its market segment. Since its launch at the beginning of 2017, the new PEUGEOT 5008 SUV has already recorded 21,400 sales.
LCV sales have risen by 12%, boosted by the new, high-performance PEUGEOT Expert, plus PEUGEOT Partner and Boxer.
The customer portfolio is up 72% in comparison with the same period in 2016.
The sales offensive will continue in the second half of 2017 with the launch of new PEUGEOT 308 in September.
