“This is a good signal for us, particularly at a time of crisis,” he said, adding that the output is bound for western Europe, especially Germany and Italy. Two models – the Peugeot 207 and the Citroen C3 Picasso – are currently manufactured at the plant. A total of 100,730 vehicles were produced there during the first half of 2010.
