Peugeot has increased production of the award-winning Peugeot 2008 as the brand strives to meet a continued growth in demand for this popular compact crossover across Europe.
Launched in spring 2013, Peugeot has fulfilled 120,000 orders to date, but demand continues to outstrip supply. A fourth increase in output will now reach 860 production units per day and will require an extra half night shift.
The Peugeot 2008 is produced exclusively at Peugeot’s Mulhouse plant. Awarded the “Guaranteed French Origin” label in September 2013, 73 per cent of its components are produced in France. It is the only vehicle in its category to offer a grip control technology, a system that improves traction. It was awarded a five-star rating in Euro NCAP tests and presented with car awards in Ireland, Italy, Spain, France, Poland and Turkey.
Winner of the Continental Irish Small Car of the Year 2014 award, the 2008 is available in Ireland from €18,595 plus delivery and comes with a five-year warranty as standard.
With a choice of efficient petrol and diesel engines, the compact crossover is perfect for town driving, yet at home on country roads. It offers customers an innovative cockpit designed around a small steering wheel and a quality, spacious interior all in a compact, stylish package.
