Peugeot produces its 300 000th 208
One year after the start of production in 2012, the Peugeot 208 has passed the mark of 300,000 units produced. This 300,000th vehicle came from the PSA Peugeot Citroën production plant at Poissy.

On the occasion of the production of the 300, 000th Peugeot 208, Gaëlle Monteiller, Director of the Poissy site, and Marc Giulioli, Marketing Director at Peugeot France, met with a new 208 customer, from Toulouse, for a symbolic handover of the keys that took place at the Poissy site on 22 Febuary.

The Peugeot 208 was in first place of the city car segment in Europe in December. This success has been confirmed in several countries: the Peugeot 208 was in 1st place in the city car segment in France in December 2012 and in January 2013. At the end of December 2012, 208 was also 1st in Spain and in Portugal and 2nd in Holland.

The 208 has already been distinguished by numerous awards in Europe – United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Ireland - and is a finalist for the European title of "Car of the Year 2013".
