Trnava-based car-manufacturing plant PSA Peugeot Citroen Slovakia launched production of the new Peugeot 208 in March, designed for the British market, the TASR newswire has been told by the plant's spokesperson, Kristína Valová. Britain has become the second country, in addition to Russia, to become an export market for the plant's vehicles with special features.
"Production of vehicles with right-hand drive has brought changes in the production process and the installation of more than 120 new parts," said Valová on April 22. Around 20,000 cars with this feature are expected to be produced in Trnava in 2013. Apart from Great Britain, cars are also driven on the left side of the road in Ireland and in many countries in Asia, Africa and Oceania.
