French law enforcement agencies will soon be driving in the PEUGEOT 5008
The PEUGEOT 5008 has been chosen by the Ministry of the Interior as a reference vehicle for the French police and gendarmerie.
The specifications defined the willingness to equip the police forces with a vehicle of the highest level of performance and made in France.
At the end of the selection process, the services of the Ministry of the Interior placed an order for 1,263 PEUGEOT 5008s manufactured in Sochaux and Rennes. These vehicles will be converted at the PSA Group site in Poissy.
