THE NEW 206 supermini will also be made in PSA's future plant in Porto Real, Brazil, 160km from Rio de Janeiro, said Frederic Saint-Geours, Peugeot brand manager.
Porto Real capacity will be 70,000 units with two shifts, and up to 100,000 with three shifts. A Citroen will also be built there. It could be the Xsara lower-medium sedan or its minivan derivative. Investment will be $600 million. Production will start in late 2000.
