TAKING ON THE SUV MARKET

During an official presentation in early October, Carlos Tavares, Chairman of the PSA Group Managing Board, summarised PSA’s ambition for the new Peugeot 3008 as follows: “The Peugeot 3008 is a vehicle that will allow us to take back the European market and win customers worldwide”. The new SUV was made to stand out from the competition. Its cat-like design – apparent in the front and back of the vehicle, with taillights that look like claw marks – and its responsive, powerful driving performance represent a break with the previous model.

Seven candidates form the list of nominees for Car of the Year 2017 award after a first vote of the 58 Jury members. Peugeot 3008 is one of the finalists !

IT’S ALREADY A HIT

Elegance and attention to detail define the new Peugeot 3008. The dashboard features a high definition digital instrument panel with five different display settings to choose from. The six piano-like control buttons provide direct access to the radio, air conditioning, navigation assistance, vehicle settings, mobile phone and applications. Peugeot’s i-Cockpit concept gives the cockpit a modern feel and ensures optimum driver comfort.
On top of these features, it offers best-in-class handling and strikes the right balance between comfort and performance, making it a prime example of the brand’s expertise and reputation.

And the Peugeot 3008 is already a hit! As many as 1,360 orders were placed at the most recent Paris Motor Show and 24,000 have been recorded to date in Europe, including 15,000 in France alone. “Peugeot has sold three times more units than expected,” raved the management of the Sochaux plant.

PSA Retail Spain and Portugal: Birth of the PSA distribution group in the Iberian Peninsula and inauguration of the Madrid flagship

The PSA Group has established a first-rate sales platform with the creation of PSA Retail Spain and Portugal, born of the merger of three of its companies. With 40 distribution locations (new, second-hand, after-sales) in the main cities of the Iberian Peninsula, PSA Retail Spain and Portugal is set to sell 56,000 new and used vehicles in 2016.

Symbolising the new milestone, PSA Retail has inaugurated 40,000 square metres of brand new retail space in Calle Doctor Esquerdo, in central Madrid. In addition to showrooms designed to match the personality and local market positioning of the Group’s three brands, the new facility has 12,000 square metres of workshops, with staff specialised in the repair and maintenance of the various models in the Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles line-ups.

It is an attractive and modern space, designed to offer the very best level of service to customers in Madrid.

With the opening of this hub at the very heart of metropolitan Madrid (less than a kilometre from Buen Retiro Park), the PSA Group now boasts a modern, elegant venue equipped with the very latest technology to promote the sale of its three brands in Southern Europe’s most populous city.

PSA Retail in Spain and Portugal aims to become a powerful and competitive distribution group.

Each year, it sells more than 33,000 new vehicles and 23,000 used vehicles, and bills more than 900,000 workshop hours.

Its 40 sale and repair facilities are strategically located in the biggest cities of the Iberian Peninsula. They are staffed by 1,400 employees spread across Spain and Portugal.

In total, PSA Retail represents almost one in five sales for the Group’s three brands in Spain and Portugal.

To mark the launch of its operations in Spain and Portugal, PSA Retail has created an impressive commercial embassy for Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles, centrally located in Madrid.

Covering a total of more than 40,000 square metres dedicated to cars, the new flagship has undergone a major facelift, and now features a lighting system using vastly more efficient LED lights.
The air-conditioning and fire-protection systems have been updated, and accessibility has been facilitated by means of doors and parking spaces specifically reserved for people with disabilities.

The new PSA Retail hub, located in the Retiro district, has embraced the latest trends in terms of technology and design.

The showrooms, which have a total floor area of 1,500 square metres dedicated to the display of new vehicles, serve to spotlight cars with a high level of technological content. They transcend their role as automotive display areas to become hi-tech venues that stimulate the five senses.

They are genuine multi-screen spaces, showcasing the various models and philosophy of each brand. Touch screens are used to create displays offering the most comprehensive information possible on each vehicle. For DS Automobiles, the inauguration is a real first, with the arrival of the “DS Store” concept in Spain. DS Store is an entirely independent commercial venue that allows the full range of models to be shown in a premium and hi-tech environment resonating with the positioning and the philosophy of the brand, which embodies French luxury in the automotive world.

For Peugeot and Citroën, the Calle Doctor Esquerdo site illustrates the important work they have done to raise their respective standards in terms of new vehicle display, ushering new aspects of their brand images into the PSA Retail space.

Used cars are housed in a dedicated 800 square-metre area specially designed to show 50 cars for which the adjective “semi-new” is a truly apt description of reality: each vehicle offered for sale is subjected to 93 key controls and comes with at least a year’s guarantee.

“PSA Retail Madrid Doctor Esquerdo, 62” will continue to be a benchmark in after sales service, with a dedicated area that has also been thoroughly renovated. It is home to the only official PSA Group service centre in Spain approved for the repair of automatic gearboxes such as the EAT6, which equips numerous Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles models.

The 12,000 square metres of workshops are home to spaces dedicated to fast and complex mechanical repairs, vehicle electrical and electronics equipment, as well as body and paintwork.

The facility boasts the latest technological systems, with six state-of-the-art diagnostic machines and the most up-to-date vehicle painting techniques including spectrophotometers and high-performance varnishes, which guarantee an optimal finish.

The 14,000 customers who bring their cars to the workshop facility can take advantage of such services as online appointment management, the possibility of financing repairs or the loan of a courtesy car, as well as continuous promotions with fixed maintenance costs. Services are available from 8.00 am to 7.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

Alfredo Vila Blanco, Managing Director of PSA Retail Spain and Portugal, said: “The opening of the new Doctor Esquerdo branch gives the PSA Group a fully renovated sales and after-sales service outlet. The site is a new benchmark in the heart of Madrid, thanks to its strategic location, modern architecture and use of advanced technologies. It is an exceptional environment where more than 100 employees can dedicate all their talent to achieving our highest priority: offer a service that brings the greatest satisfaction to our customers.”

Commenting on the inauguration, Christophe Mandon, Managing Director of Citroën, Peugeot and DS Automobiles Spain and Portugal, said: “The inauguration of this site in the heart of Madrid is excellent news, following on from a very strong product offensive for the PSA Group. The new Peugeot 3008, the new Citroën C3 and the new DS Performance Line range can be seen in facilities that highlight their strengths, and in a modern and attractive environment that fully expresses the differentiated positioning and identity of the Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles brands.”

The PSA Group, Transport & Environment (T&E), France Nature Environnement (FNE) and Bureau Veritas are fulfilling their commitments and publishing the test protocol,

The protocol for measuring real-world fuel consumption defines the means (necessary equipment) and methods (measurement and processing) that should be systematically applied to calculate the average real-life fuel consumption of the average customer. The protocol breaks down into the following three steps:
- selecting and checking the vehicle
- driving the vehicle and performing the measurement
- processing the measurement results
The measurements should be taken when the car is being driven by a non-professional driver on public roads open to traffic and under real-life driving conditions, with normal use of air-conditioning systems, passenger and luggage loads and road gradients.

In addition to the results already published in July 2016, Peugeot and Citroën will release the real-world fuel consumption figures of another 10 models (including the new Peugeot 3008 and Citroën C3) on their website in time for the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

By the end of 2016, real-world fuel consumption figures for 50 models tested during the year will be published on the Peugeot, Citroën and DS website. At the same time, a simulator to enable customers to predict their vehicles' fuel consumption based on driving style and conditions will also be released online.

In 2017, the PSA Group, Transport & Environment, France Nature Environnement and Bureau Veritas will extend the same procedure to the measurement of real-world nitrous oxide emissions.

Gilles Le Borgne, Executive Vice President, Quality and Engineering, for the PSA Group, said: “This robust protocol is the result of unprecedented and successful cooperation between a manufacturer, NGOs and a certification organisation. It is now available for all to see and to use as inspiration to encourage greater customer transparency.”
Greg Archer, Clean Vehicles Director at Transport & Environment, said: “The real-world test developed with PSA Group provides full transparency towards customers and more representative information to drivers than the new laboratory test, helping them choose the most fuel-efficient cars. This scientific approach is robust, reproducible and reliable in measuring real carbon emissions. Thus, we urge the European Commission and all carmakers to use this test for regulatory and advertising purposes.”
