You probably know by now that China’s automotive market has boomed in the last years and it will continue to do so for at least a couple of years from now. Peugeot has decided to make the most out of this and they are going to reinforce their presence in this country by launching (at least) one model per year. At first, they are going to launch the beautiful 508 sedan, along with a brand new concept model, which will be revealed next week at the Shanghai Auto Show.

The China-spec 508 model is going to be built locally and the French automaker said that 50% of all the units will be manufactured & sold locally, reaching 65,000 units in its first full year of production. The company also stated that this launch will play a key role in achieving Peugeot’s sales target of 200,000 units in China this year.
