Peugeot to re-enter Nepali market after Dashain
Shangrila Motors Pvt Ltd, the newly appointed distributors of Peugeot in Nepal, has re-introduced the French brand after its brief and unremarkable stint in the country two years ago. A world-renowned brand, Peugeot will be rolling out its new models — Peugeot 2008, a compact SUV, and Peugeot 508, a premium sedan — after Dashain.
“We are very excited and enthused about this new addition to the Nepali market and we believe the new SUV will be able to win the hearts of the Nepalese customers,” said RK Singh, Deputy General Manager at Shangrila Motors.

The updated 2008 features the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit, an innovative interior with attractive features such as a soft-touch dashboard with ergonomic design, leather-trimmed steering wheel and aviation-style handbrake. The head-up instrument panel allows vehicle information to be viewed above, rather than through, the steering wheel. The 7-inch colour touchscreen places an extensive array of digital functions at your fingertips.
According to Singh, the brand’s USP lies in its dynamic look, uncompromising quality, powerful engine, safety and comfort. “Since these vehicles are not for the masses, we are aiming to sell around 100 units annually,” he added.
