PSA Peugeot Citroen has agreed with its partner Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) to transfer the production of the Peugeot 4007 and Citroen C-Crosser to Europe.
Currently assembled in the MMC Japanese Mizushima factory, vehicles for the European market will, from January 2009, be manufactured in the Dutch "Ned Car" factory, which is wholly owned by MMC.
The decision to locate production in Europe will thus enable PSA Peugeot Citroen to respond more quickly to changes in European SUV demand. This market segment remains one of the most dynamic in Europe.
The Peugeot 4007 and Citroen C-Crosser, the group’s first SUVs, were launched in Europe in the 3rd quarter of 2007.Published 27 March 2008
