However, despite the circumstances, our business results have once again elevated us to market leadership and this fills us with optimism and pride. Peugeot is doing things well: this leadership is not only proof of the success of our innovative range of products and services, but also the consequence of the efforts of a team determined to improve day by day and overcome unknown difficulties. And in this sense, our dealers deserve a special mention who, facing all kinds of adversities, have done a great job, responding to the needs of customers and providing them with an excellent quality of service. The time has come to change to continue advancing in an increasingly competitive and uncertain environment ”.
