PSA halts 308 output at Sochaux plant after gearbox problem

PSA Group has halted production of the Peugeot 308 at its plant in Sochaux, France, after the factory ran out of manual transmissions.

Production was halted for a second day on Wednesday. “We had to stop one of the lines, which does the 308,” a PSA spokeswoman said, adding that she didn’t know when production would be restored.

Output of the six-speed manual unit may have been affected by summer production slowdowns.
