About Peugeot Cars
Peugeot re-invents itself with new collaborations and upcoming models
Peugeot is a well-known company in the field of machines starting from bicycles and grinders to glamorous cars. Their business expanded over a wide range of products and establishments, what made them really popular is their fame in the automobile industry. Now, Peugeot is one of the leading producers of luxury cars and commercial vehicles in France. Donning an emblem of a lion, Peugeot roars out its excellence by producing four winners of The European Car of the Year, with the last being in 2014. Peugeot has also remained the major manufacturer of bikes and scooters in Europe. Such a company bears its history rooted in France.
History and origin
The company began as a coffee mill in France, in 1810. However, it went through various other businesses involving steel rods, umbrella frames and finally came up with bicycles, in 1830. In 1889, Armand Peugeot took an interest to manufacture their first automobile in the form of a steam-powered three wheel car. Then the company went through a lot of changes and modifications, producing one model after another, each with some upgradations. Participating and winning Paris-Rouen race, Peugeot took its racing legacy from the 3 horsepower car to the modern day Peugeot 307.
Business in Philippines
Peugeot had expanded its market and it launched a great line-up of cars. However, business did not prove to be fruitful everywhere. The venture went unsuccessful in the Philippines when Peugeot entered the Philippine market in 2005 with 307 hatchback and 206CC coupe convertible. Without being disheartened by the failure, Peugeot re-entered Philippines, in 2012, under the Eurobrands Distributors Inc. Thus, the French brands distributorship has fallen in the able hands of Jose Ch. Alvarez, chairman of Euro brands.
Along with this, Peugeot had assumed a new marketing strategy which motivated them to sell their cars at prices cheaper than those of most of the other European cars. Peugeot has also launched a new range of stylish cars including sedans, minivans and sports cars. The Peugeot 5008 is a well-known compact car in the market. Their sports lineup is led by RCZ. Peugeot has been banking mostly on their skills of making diesel engine-based cars.
Second largest manufacturer in Europe
Why Peugeot is doing such an impressive business in Europe? Well, this is because it is a French-based car manufacturer. All the world knows the taste of French in the field of art and style, and that makes Peugeot stand out among its competitors. When great style and design comes at a price cheaper than most of the European cars, then sales are expected to boost. Apart from these, the French manufacturer excels itself in diesel cars. They make one of the best turbodiesel engines.
You can take an example of the Peugeot 308. This car is a small family coupe, but is installed with an engine which is greener than the Bluemotion engine. 308 comes with a 1.2 liter BlueHDi 120 manual engine that returns a mileage of 91.1 mpg. Thus, it stands in a better place than any other hybrid car in terms of CO2 emissions and fuel economy. It also comes at a lower price than those cars that offers a mileage closer to the one provided by 308. Hence, it is evident why Peugeot is one of the leading automobile manufacturers in Europe.
Upcoming models in Philippines
A few new models of Peugeot include 108 and 508 models. It is also banking on the new Peugeot 2008 DKR, specially made for Dakar Rally. Peugeot assures it to be the toughest rally car.
New ventures and collaborations
Although Peugeot is a 200 year old company and had been bearing its name as the second-largest car manufacturer in Europe, it has been facing some difficulties in the past few years. Its sales have dropped and the company has incurred some loss. Its Aulnay-sous-Bois plant in Paris has been shut down to cut down the cost. Peugeot’s investment deal with General Motors signed in 2012 has broken off due to the losses made the French company.
In 2014, they have entered into a deal with the Chinese Dongfeng Motors. Although Peugeot’s stakes have fallen from 25.4% to 14%, it may help the company thrive for longer till it brings in some game-changer in the automobile market.
