Five years after its launch, the Peugeot
3008, one of the brand’s bestsellers, is celebrating the manufacture of its one millionth model, which has rolled off the production line at the company’s Sochaux factory in France. Staff gathered around the car, a Peugeot 3008 Plug-in Hybrid, to mark the milestone.
In France, the Peugeot 3008 has been the leader in its segment since its launch. In Europe, it comes in second place in the SUV segment in 2021. It has also taken a strong position in Southern Europe, where it is number one in Portugal and number two in Italy and Spain.
Europe accounts for 65% of sales and its major markets outside Europe are Turkey, Israel, Japan and Egypt. More than 80% of the Peugeot 3008’s sales are of automatic gearbox versions, and almost 38% are in higher trim levels which are also popular in the UK.
