Six years after the launch of the PEUGEOT 2008 SUV, one of the brand’s top sellers, the PSA Group’s Mulhouse plant has produced the one-millionth model.

Jean-Philippe Imparato, Chief Executive Officer of the PEUGEOT brand, presented the keys of the one-millionth PEUGEOT 2008 to Ms. C.  Jung on Wednesday 9 January 2019.



The PEUGEOT 2008 is currently produced on three continents – in Europe, China and Latin America – but its story began in 2013 at the Mulhouse production site, which today is celebrating the production of the one-millionth model. The PEUGEOT 2008 has been “Origine France Garantie” certified since launch, with 62% of its components manufactured in France.

 

Produced in over 1,210,250 units worldwide, the PEUGEOT 2008 quickly won over customers in all its sales countries. And the model continues to be a major success, ranking top-three in the B-SUV segment in Europe 30 countries.

 

The Mulhouse plant produces 780 units of PEUGEOT 2008 a day, manufacturing a total of 193,000 in 2018.

 

Jean-Philippe Imparato, Chief Executive Officer of the PEUGEOT brand, presented the keys of the one-millionth PEUGEOT 2008 – a white Crossway PureTech 130 S&S with a six-speed manual gearbox – to Ms. C. Jung, a loyal customer of the PSA Retail subsidiary in Mulhouse.
