Peugeot is one of the major European car manufacturers. Famous for their high end design and high tech features, all the vehicles of this brand have become a luxury symbol all across the globe. This world renowned French car brand has recently announced that they would launch Peugeot as a brand in India very soon, though it is not the official announcement. The rumour has it that the official announcement is right there in the corner of the first quarter of the year 2011. Since, we all have witnessed the images of Peugeot 508 floating everywhere on the internet with the caption WE WANT THIS CAR IN INDIA, we believe that this might become reality soon. We truly believe that the first car to be launched by this company is the Peugeot 508, as this car would be the best suited candidate for the newly constructed CKD manufacturing plant which is supposed to have a capacity of 100,000 vehicles.
Peugeot 508 is the size of the all so famous Honda Accord in India. This car was launched by the Peugeot recently in the ‘Paris Auto Show’. This car has got everything that makes it a head turner. Right from the exteriors to the interiors settings, it is simply scintillating. The exteriors of this car look like one of those French chicks wrapped in the satin cloth. It’s elegant, distinct and stylish. At the same time sit inside the car and you’ll be awed by the elegant interiors of the car. The material used is of high quality which is marked by the very fine detailing. It offers a great deal of information about the features included inside the car as well. This car offers an ample of cabin space and a generous boot space. Though, it’s not right time to speculate about its features we are very much sure about the 2.0 litre HDi common rail diesel engine which will be available in either the 160 Bhp or with 140 Bhp output. But we guess that the Indian market will be blessed with the former one as it will make a lot of sense because of its automatic tranny.
Besides the Peugeot 508, we also expect that the company will launch two other models under their Halo Car category. It can be either the 308 or the 207. Yes this is a great piece of news, but there is one more thing we are expecting out of Peugeot Automobiles. We speculate that since this company has constructed a manufacturing plant in India, we believe sooner or later it will manufacture some all new cars eventually in this manufacturing plant. Isn’t that a great deal?
