Peugeot car sales surging ahead in 2010


A strong September performance means Peugeot continues to out-perform the market year-to-date with increased sales of 12.7%, in a market up 7.8%. This growth has been achieved by strong demand, not only for the three new products launched this year; RCZ, 3008 and the 7 seater 5008, but also from the Peugeot 107 and Peugeot 207. Together both models account for 3.31% of total UK sales year-to-date. An especially strong performance from the Peugeot 107 hatchback resulted in it recording its best monthly performance and achieving 1.25% share of total sales year-to-date.

This success has been fuelled by Peugeot’s innovative Just Add Fuel programme which enables customers to purchase a new car with the piece of mind of a single monthly payment, covering all their motoring costs.

The Peugeot RCZ recorded it strongest sales performance in September with sales of 714 vehicles. A total of 1,450 vehicles have now been registered since its launch in June. The Peugeot 3008 also recorded another strong performance in September and over 10,000 vehicles have now been sold in the UK in 2010.

Peugeot’s strong LCV sales performance also continued in September with sales up 33% in a market up 23.5%. Year-to-date, Peugeot has now increased its LCV sales by 30%, in a market up 17.8%.
