On the 28th May, just ten months after its inauguration, DPCA's new Wuhan 3 plant in China produced its 100,000th car, a Peugeot 2008.
The facility currently makes three models, the new Citroën C-Elysée and the Peugeot 301 and 2008, with a fourth scheduled to start production in the near future. In June, it will reach its potential output of 44 vehicles per hour in two shifts.
With more than 60,000 units invoiced in May, DPCA's estimated market share now exceeds 4.5%, a 0.6-point gain compared with May 2013. Year-to-date market share stands at 4.2% for the sale of more than 285,000 units.
DPCA's excellent May results were lifted by Dongfeng Citroën's out-performing the market (sales up 15%) and the very strong 47% growth recorded by Dongfeng Peugeot.
As in previous months, DF Citroën's performance was led by the success of the new C-Elysée (7,700 units delivered) and the strong sales of the C-Quatre (8,100 deliveries).
The entire DF Peugeot line-up reported gains, with the delivery of 8,000 Peugeot 308 units, 6,100 Peugeot 3008 units, 6,000 Peugeot 301 units and already 3,500 Peugeot 2008 units following its launch on the 7th April.
These results confirm DPCA's strong growth dynamic and indicate that full-year sales will exceed the announced target of 650,000 units.
