It seems that Peugeot has major plans to increase its visibility in Asia. At a press conference this week, Peugeot’s deputy M.D. Nicolas Werans announced the future plans for its Peugeot brand, including their partnership with Malaysian auto maker Naza.
Weran stated that Peugeot planned to utilize Naza’s Malaysian-based plant to produce right-hand drive Peugeots meant for the Asian, Australian and South African market. The production is expected to start almost immediately, with the first units rolling out to Indonesia and Thailand within the year.
Peugeot will also setup an office in Malaysia to study the Asian region so they may better build vehicles in the future suited to the region.
