According to the French based automaker, the Peugeot 2008 Concept is powered by a 1.2 liter turbocharged engine, which is developing a total output of 110 BHP. The final production version of the Peugeot 2008 will be assembled in France, China and Brazil and it will be aimed at city dwellers who want an alternative to the Nissan Juke, Opel Mokka and so on. No more details are known on the Peugeot 2008 Concept for the moment but the carmaker says that a new model, named the 301, will also make its debut in Paris and it will be produced in Spain and sold in China and emerging markets like Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Russia.
