    First Locally Assembled Peugeot 2008 is Here!

    A great news for crossover SUV lovers, the first locally assembled unit of Peugeot 2008 is here. As per a video circulating on social media, the first Pakistan Domestic model of the car has left the assembly line. This is a great step by Peugeot Pakistan, setting a good precedent.

    The company imported the CBU unit, tested on local roads and will launch it after assembling the car locally. Meanwhile, some companies have either only sold CBU units or started bookings way before producing CKD units. So, bravo to the Peugeot Pakistan.

    Expected Launch

    As per our sources, the car will be launched in next couple of weeks. So, it is time to be excited because the car is almost here and this is the first European car arriving in Pakistan.

    Expected Price of Peugeot 2008

    The reports stated that the price will range between Rs4.5 to 5 Million. However, nothing is confirmed as yet because company has not revealed anything about it.

    Specs and Features – International Model 

    To give you a hint about the car, here are specs and features of the car. These have been taken from Pakistan Peugeot Facebook page.


    The car is going to be 4158mm Long, 1740mm Wide and 1557mm High with a 2538mm Wheelbase. Further, the Ground Clearance of the car is 170mm.

    Engine and Transmission

    The Lucky Motors will launch the vehicle with a 1200cc MPI Turbo Engine which produces 130hp and 230Nm torque. And the car is going to have 6-Speed Auto Transmission with Front Wheel Drive (FWD).

    The interesting bit here is that although Peugeot has specified one engine size for the upcoming 2008 model, there’s an image of the hybrid LCD meter on the website. Plus, there’s a line that says, “equipped with efficient petrol engines in order to meet the demands of professionals”. Reading between the lines, we think Peugeot might introduce more than one engine options (maybe a hybrid) for Peugeot 2008. If not, they have just copy and pasted everything from their international website.
