Peugeot has recorded its strongest performance in the Irish new car market in January 2018, entering the top ten bestselling brands in Ireland.

Peugeot Ireland saw a 71% increase in passenger car registrations for the first month of 2018. The success comes on the back of demand for the Peugeot 2008 SUV, the Peugeot 3008 SUV, crowned Irish Car of the Year 2018 and the newly launched 5008 7-seat SUV.

Colin Sheridan, Sales and Marketing Director said: “Despite the slight contract in the new car market, we are delighted to report a growth of 71% in what is clearly the most important month of the year for new vehicle sales. Indeed, it’s the strongest performance Peugeot has recorded in Ireland since the year 2007.”

He continued: “Thanks to a number of Dealer appointments in the last 12 months and our ongoing Network development plan, we’ve seen particular gains in the all-important counties of Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Kildare and indeed in Sligo.”

Peugeot Ireland is looking forward to a number of further new product launches and dealer appointments in 2018.
