The first locally assembled Peugeot 2008 unit has arrived, which is fantastic news for crossover SUV fans. According to a social media video, the first Pakistan Domestic model of the car has rolled off the assembly line. Peugeot Pakistan has taken an excellent step, establishing a good precedent.
The CBU unit was imported, tested on local roads, and will be launched after the car is assembled locally. Meanwhile, some companies have only sold CBU units or have begun bookings prior to producing CKD units. So, congratulations to Peugeot Pakistan.
Launch Date Expected
According to our sources, the car will be released in the coming weeks. So it’s time to get excited because the car is almost here, and it will be the first European vehicle to arrive in Pakistan.
Peugeot 2008 Price Prediction
According to reports, the price will range between Rs4.5 and 5 million. However, nothing has been confirmed as of yet because the company has not revealed anything.
International Model Specifications and Features
Here are some specs and features of the car to give you an idea of what to expect. These are screenshots from the Pakistan Peugeot Facebook page.
The vehicle will be 4158mm long, 1740mm wide, and 1557mm tall, with a 2538mm wheelbase. Furthermore, the car has a ground clearance of 170mm.
Engine and Transmission
The vehicle will be launched by Lucky Motors with a 1200cc MPI Turbo Engine that produces 130hp and 230Nm torque. In addition, the vehicle will be equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD).
The interesting thing here is that despite the fact that Peugeot has only specified one engine size for the upcoming 2008 model, an image of the hybrid LCD meter is available on the company’s website. In addition, there is a line that says, “equipped with efficient petrol engines to meet the demands of professionals.” Reading between the lines, we believe Peugeot will offer more than one engine option (possibly a hybrid) for the Peugeot 2008. If they haven’t, they’ve simply copied and pasted everything from their international website.
