The first locally produced Peugeot 2008 is here, which is fantastic news for crossover SUV fans. The first Pakistan Domestic variant of the car has departed the assembly line, according to a video circulating on social media. Peugeot Pakistan has taken a big step forward in setting a good example.
The company imported the CBU unit, tested it on local roads, and plans to launch it after local assembly. Meanwhile, other businesses have only sold CBU units or have begun taking reservations for CKD units long before they have been manufactured. So, congratulations to Peugeot Pakistan.

There are currently no details of the vehicle’s price for the Pakistani market but it is believed that LMC will position the Peugeot brand as a high-end alternative to Kia, which implies that 2008 could be priced anywhere between Rs. 4.3 million and Rs. 4.8 million.
Although this is a steep price tag, given the features, looks, and performance of the Peugeot SUV, it is likely to become one of the most popular vehicles among the high-end car buyers across Pakistan.
