Production of Peugeot commenced in Nigeria on March 2, 1975 shortly after its Kaduna based assembly plant was commissioned by General Yakubu Gowon. It all started with the Federal Government of Nigeria’s idea to achieve local production of cars.. and they decided to partner with Automobile Peugeot France (AP France). The legendary 404, 504, 505, 505 Evolution, J5, 406 etc.. all came from this plant. At present, it produces 240 cars per day in 3 shifts.
