In Russia the production of modern European crossovers resumes after a two-year break. Plant «PSMA Rus» in the Kaluga region plans to assemble co-platform models of the French brands Peugeot and Citroen, using the modular platform EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform).
As writes Auto Mail.ru with reference to its sources, the plant will begin mass production of Citroen C5 Aircross and Peugeot 4008, as well as other modern cars, which are currently unofficially supplied from China to Russia.
The source also notes that in the future may also be launched production Citroen C5
Tentatively, the cars will represent their «Chinese» versions, intended for the Chinese market. However, adaptation and localization of these models for Russia is not excluded.
However, sources warn: it is not worth expecting a drop in prices on these crossovers due to the complex chain of supply and production.
Earlier it became known that the plant had resumed work at the end of last year.
