On April 16th the first pre-series 408, designed especially for the Russian market, rolled-off the Peugeot Russia production line at their factory in Kaluga.

Peugeot 408 is a global project developed for the brand’s three key markets in Russia, China and Latin America.

For each of these markets a profound adaptation to specific climate and road conditions was carried out, and the preferences of local customers were taken into account.
