Lucky Motors, the local partners of Peugeot will be launching the Peugeot 2008 on 28th January, 2022 according to various industry insiders. Some of you might have seen the video of the locally produced Peugeot 2008 rolling off the Hub assembly plant of Peugeot at the end of the last year. There were also other spottings of the 2008 crossover SUV in Karachi, implying that the launch of the new car is imminent.
Peugeot 2008 comes with a 1199cc 3-cylinder turbocharged engine and automatic transmission. It will be competing against cars like Kia Stonic, MG ZS and upcoming Cherry Tiggo 4 Pro. But since Kia belongs to the same Lucky Motors group, the company won’t be pricing it near Stonic’s price to prevent cannibalization by its own product.
Although 2008 available in Europe comes equipped with all sorts of features, it is possible some of those features might not be made available in local 2008 to keep the price low and competitive.
Right now there is one Peugeot showroom in Pakistan, situated in Karachi. In case of the physical launch of the car, you can expect it to happen at that showroom. If it is a soft launch, like a virtual launch, the case would be different of course.
