THE PSA Peugeot Citroën carmaker will start serial production at its new factory in Trnava in Western Slovakia at the end of June, company officials announced on May 5.

According to Alain Baldeyrou, the plant's director, the company plans to produce up to 70,000 Peugeot 207 cars by the end of the year, the TASR news agency wrote.
