In 2010, Peugeot confirmed its position as the world’s leading French car brand, while in Europe, Peugeot and Citroën rose in the brand league tables to rank fourth and sixth respectively.
Jean-Marc Gales, Executive Vice President, Brands noted:
“In addition to the record sales achieved in our bicentennial year, I can identify two reasons for satisfaction. The first is our international growth, with a large proportion of our sales now generated outside Europe. The second is the quality of our results. We made considerable headway with premium and B-to-B customers, thanks to the deployment of new models and the delivery of superior product quality, design and environmental performance, backed by our excellent quality of service. Despite the elimination of government scrappage incentives in Europe, all of these competitive strengths mean that we can look ahead to 2011 with confidence.”
