All Peugeot names will end in

The naming strategies seem to raise serious problems for all automakers as all Mercedes SUVs will start with "G", while BMW plans to make the 3-Series coupe and convertible into a 4-Series. As everyone knows, the Chinese market requires the cars to be renamed. The new naming system from Peugeot is expected to be a solution to this problem. Thus, although being the successor to the 308, the new compact sedan of the French carmaker is called the "301", due to the fact that the next number in the scheme was a bucket of bolts (309). Another reason is that Peugeot has made a naming system which has all car names end with either "1" or "8". While the "8" models are going to be more upmarket, the 301 and other cars that end in "1" will be budget-minded. The 107 will also become the 108 with all the current cars to be renamed soon according to the new system.
