Peugeot is happy to announce production of the 2008 will double in order to meet a very strong demand for the attractive crossover.

The 2008 is manufactured at PSA's factory located in Mulhouse in eastern France where they currently make 5,000 units each month. Peugeot's chief Maxime Picat said production will be doubled to 10,000 units per month starting September when they will add a second shift. Picat mentioned Peugeot has already received 16,000 orders and most of them come from dealerships where the car hasn't even been showcased yet.

Peugeot believes they'll be able to sell 200,000 units of the 2008 crossover in 2015. Half of them will be produced in Mulhouse for Europe, China and South America, while 45,000 cars will be made in Brazil. The remaining 55,000 units are going to be manufactured in China.
