QUANG NAM (Biz Hub) — The first locally made Peugeot 408 model has made its debut, officials of Truong Hai Automobile company (Thaco), in partnership with French automaker Peugeot, said on Thursday.

This is the first Peugeot car manufactured in Viet Nam following an eight-month technology re-tooling, said officials.

Thaco will also begin manufacturing and assembling the Peugeot 3008 model at Truong Hai-Chu Lai Auto Complex in central Quang Nam Province next year.

The largest automobile manufacturer in Viet Nam has produced and distributed vehicles for car manufacturers, including Kia from South Korea, Mazda from Japan and French giant Peugeot. — VNS
