Peugeot will launch the 308 sometime in 2008. It is an MPV-style, stretched forward scuttle. Also a folding tin-top 308 CC model is also scheduled for production later in 2008 or ’09.
Peugeot and Citroen continue with their three-platform strategy; every new model will use one of their core platforms, with exceptions for third-party collaborations like this summer’s 4007, produced in partnership with Mitsubishi.
The 308 will remain on the PF2 medium-car component set; it’s the same as the Citroen C4, and means front-wheel drive, the option of an automated manual geaerbox and a suite of petrol and diesel engines from 1.4 up to 2.0 litres.
