Peugeot will make a few adjustments to its product lineup, with the petrol-powered 308 GT set to bite the dust at the end of June.
The information was confirmed to CarScoops by Rodica Ionescu, PR Manager for Trust Motors, which is the official Peugeot, Citroen and DS cars importer in Romania. The representative said that this decision has been taken to help improve Peugeot’s corporate carbon dioxide emissions.
Contrary to a previous report, the 308 GTi will live on, but with some modifications – and, according to Ionescu, its will be suspended for two months, July and August.
It’s hard to say when the next-gen 308 will be introduced, but the one currently on sale is already 6 years old, which means that its successor can’t be far off. It could debut sometime next year, though, and the GTi model will continue to lead the pack, albeit probably with an electrified powertrain that will both improve performance and further reduce CO2 emissions.
