During their launch last year, Eurobrands Distributor Inc. (EDI) - the official importer and distributor of Peugeot vehicles in the country - committed to open 12 full service dealerships in the Philippines within 2013. We honestly thought that they were just being cocky, especially for a newcomer in the industry, and weren't really that serious about the plan. Well, we thought wrong.
The growing demand for Peugeot vehicles in the Philippines has grown so much that EDI was forced to put up a 'temporary' sales outlet in Metro Manila. Now open for business is Peugeot C-5 Libis.
Eurobrands Distributor Inc. (EDI), the official importer and distributor of Peugeot vehicles in the Philippines, has a very unique way of celebrating Mother's Day. They've set up a two-week mall display to bring the Peugeot experience closer to their customers, which includes mothers, sisters, wives, aunts, and what not, even if the special occasion is still weeks away. Why? Well, because we're pretty darn sure that they'd love to drive, or be driven around, in one of these very pretty French cars.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look younger and fresher, than to age like wine. Take it from the French and their quest for aesthetics and romanticism. It’s no surprise that the ‘Spirit of the Snob Appeal’ is translated to their cars as well. At the recently-concluded 2013 Manila International Auto Show (MIAS), Eurobrands Distributor Inc (EDI), the official distributor of Peugeot in the Philippines, unveiled their newly refreshed sports coupe, the RCZ.
While Peugeot - through its official distributor Eurobrands Distributors Inc. (EDI) - officially arrived in the country late last year, it is only now can they truly start serving their customers as they open their first two dealerships in the Philippines. Now open for business is Peugeot Las Piñas and Peugeot Cagayan de Oro.
Located along Zapote Road in southern Metro Manila and Mastersons Avenue in Cagayan de Oro City, Peugeot Las Piñas and Peugeot Cagayan de Oro both offer full sales, service, and after-sales services. They aim to provide the full Peugeot ownership experience to their customers while ascribing fully to Peugeot international standards. Go for a quick visit and check out Peugeot's full lineup: the 3008 crossover, 5008 compact MPV, 508 executive sedan, and RCZ sports car.
Previewed back in May, we're glad to announce that French automaker Peugeot has finally made landfall in the Philippines. Well... sort of. While Eurobrands Distributor Inc. (EDI) is the new local exclusive importer and distributor of Europe's second-largest selling automotive brand, they don't exactly have any physically-built dealerships yet to sell their cars in. But at their media press conference earlier this week, they revealed that they already have plans to open 12 dealerships in the country in 2013. Not only that, they also gave us the green light to let everybody know what the first four models they're brining in will be.
Before anything else, lets get one thing straight: Peugeot, being a French car maker, is properly pronounced as 'pew-shjo', but some British motorsport commentators prefer to call it as 'pur-zhoh' so don't be confused.
Brought in by the Alvarez Group of Companies, the same people behind the KIA (Columbian Autocar Corporation) and BMW (Asian Carmakers Corporation), Eurobrands Distributor Inc. - otherwise known as Peugeot Philippines - is all set to open its doors to business in just a few months’ time. Although they've already divulged to us which models they're bringing in this year, we've been asked to keep mum until the brand's official launch at the Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) in August. So, to tickle your excitement, here are some things you need to know about the brand.
