Following the export of an initial batch of Peugeot 207s to Thailand last November, Nasim Sdn Bhd will be increasing exports of the model soon, with Indonesia as the next country for the Malaysian-made French car.
This was announced by SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin, CEO of Nasim, after he briefed the French Ambassador to Malaysia at the Naza Automotive Manufacturing (NAM) plant in Gurun, Kedah. The ambassador, Marc Barety, was accompanied by members of the French Embassy and the Malaysian French Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“Besides Thailand and Indonesia, we will soon begin exporting the 207 to other markets in the region such as Brunei and Sri Lanka as well as right-hand drive markets in Africa. This in turn will further establish Malaysia as Peugeot’s hub for the region,” said Encik SM Nasarudin.
Later in the year, NAM will also begin producing a new C-segment model currently codenamed ‘T73’. The plan is for 60,000 units of the T73 to be produced over a 5-year period from 2012 to 2016 with some 60% to be exported to other right-hand drive countries in ASEAN as well as markets outside the region.
In Malaysia, sales of the 207 Sedan have been going well and in January alone 306 units were delivered to customers.
