The completed acquisition marks a significant milestone for Stellantis in South East Asia, with plans to invest and dramatically expand its footprint as part of a robust localisation strategy.

“Stellantis is deeply committed to growing our presence in ASEAN, and taking full ownership and responsibility of the plant in Gurun, Kedah is a very important step towards strengthening our operations, production outputs and workforce in the region,” said Christophe Musy, Senior Vice President, ASEAN & General Distributors at Stellantis.   

“We have an ambitious growth strategy that will enable us to build on the existing production outputs in Gurun, as well as extend the breadth of brands and models within the Stellantis portfolio built in ASEAN for ASEAN. This is a very exciting proposition.”    

Stellantis recently restarted manufacturing in Gurun, with the launch of the refreshed Peugeot 3008 and 5008 currently rolling out across the region, two vehicles gleaning international success in Europe.

Furthermore, the much-anticipated Peugeot 2008 will also commence production this month in Gurun, bringing to the ASEAN region a lucrative new compact SUV offering from the high-end brand.

“In spite of the pandemic we are extremely proud to see increased customer demand for Peugeot in the region,” said Mr Musy.

“We are working closely with our partners to increase plant capacity by almost 40 per cent to meet demand, and this combined with our strong product plan and determination to achieve the highest standards in quality and safety has set us up for great success in Malaysia.”

Peugeot Unveils The New 308 SW

Peugeot 308 SW

Following the unveiling of the new 308, Peugeot has announced the new 308 SW.

For the first time, the new 308 SW is available with plug-in hybrid technology as well as diesel and petrol engines.

Exterior

At the front, the new 308 SW bears the new brand logo, featuring a roaring lions head. The logo neatly covers the radar used by the autonomous driving aids for a sleeker look.

Peugeot 308 SW

The all-new 308 SW models also come with Eco LED headlights as standard, and feature Peugeot’s now-iconic ‘fang’ daytime running lights, adding to the front profile, and making the new 308 SW instantly recognisable.

GT and GT Premium models see the LED headlights upgraded to even sleeker Matrix LED lights for improved visibility and safety. At the rear, the LED lights feature Peugeot’s iconic three claw signature.

The sloping roof, similar to the new 308, has been designed to maximise internal space for passengers and load items, while the pronounced skirt’s sleek lines give the new 308 SW an aggressive stance.

Measuring 4.64m long which is 6 cm longer than the previous iteration, the model has been lowered by 20mm, with a height of 1.44m.

Interior

Inside, the new 308 SW comes with Peugeot’s latest i-Cockpit interior and new i-Connect Advanced infotainment system, which brings a smartphone-like user experience to the cockpit.

Peugeot 308 SW

The new 308 SW is also available with the latest semi-autonomous driver assist features and safety technologies.

The aerodynamic wheels, combined with Peugeot’s choice of A or A+ graded tyres help improve fuel economy, without compromising the new 308 SW’s agile handling.

Load volume capacity in the new 308 SW is 608-litres, extending to 1,634-litres with the rear seats folded. The new 308 SW comes with a two-position boot floor, which helps improve capacity.

Practicality

The load area also comes with a 12V socket, with LED lighting and two storage nets and bag hooks. GT Premium models come standard with an automatically opening tailgate, which can be activated by sweeping the foot underneath the bumper or via the key fob.

Peugeot 308 SW

To make it even more versatile, the new PEUGEOT 308 SW comes standard with a three-part rear seat configuration (40/20/40 split) and has a system to instantly fold the rear row by using two controls easily accessible from the sides of the boot.

Convenience

Another key development is the small steering wheel, which features sensors to detect the driver’s grip levels when using driving aids. Ergonomically designed, it also includes fingertip controls for the radio, media, telephone and driving aids.

For improved smartphone connectivity, all models come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with a new wireless connection from Allure Premium models.

Powertrain

The new Peugeot 308 SW is available with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options from launch:

Peugeot 308 SW

Both versions are powered by a 12.4kWh lithium-ion battery, while there are two types of on-board chargers available – a standard 3.7kW charger and an optional 7.4kW fast charger. The estimated recharging time is:

The new Peugeot 308 SW is also available with one turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine and 1 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine.

The new Peugeot 308 SW will be produced in France at the Mulhouse plant with first deliveries taking place in early 2022.
