Potential buyers can now configure and buy a new Peugeot model online through their new automotive portal. The new section on Peugeot’s website also allows customers to arrange finance and secure a valuation on their part-exchange.
The European manufacturer claims ‘Order Online by Peugeot’ is the world’s first fully comprehensive online car-buying process and the UK is the first country it has been offered in.
In just 30 minutes, choose the exact model, engine, gearbox and trim they want, and add a range of optional extras. The buyer is then presented with a finance quote, although this can be tailored to suit their circumstances by changing the size of the deposit, the length of the agreement and the annual mileage limit.
There’s the option to have the car delivered to the buyer’s home or place of work for a small fee, or collect it from their local dealership for free.
Peugeot’s UK MD David Peel told Carbuyer.co.uk: “The retail landscape in general has changed immeasurably over the last few years and we’re not only proud to be the first car manufacturer to offer customers a truly end-to-end experience, but also honoured to be the first of Peugeot’s markets to unveil the system.”
