In 2007, Peugeot planned to come back to the US and Canadian markets. A few Peugeot were imported and registered in New Jersey state where the automaker still has an office.

Some rumours stated that the large 407 coupe was designed for the US market.

The plan to come back into the North American market was stopped when the subprime crisis started.

A few years ago, a Peugeot 407 full-size sedan has been spotted on the NJ Turnpike and a Peugeot RCZ at the Detroit Motor Show. These imported Peugeots are probably company cars from Peugeot Motors of America Inc.

Some of the new Peugeots seen on the US roads are driven by the U.N. members and diplomats.

Hey Everyone,
Calm down... You're drinking the same wine that every sucker for Citroen, Peugeot and French cars in general have for decades... There is absolutely no way you will see new French cars being sold in the US during your lifetime.
While the newer designs are indeed able to compete with some of the best of Germany and American manufacturers, the primary problem with Citroen (PSA) is that their top management and marketing managers have no balls.
They just don't have the guts to go head to head in the American market and at this point its a proven fact that they've been feeding the same old story line to enthusiasts, former dealers, and the press for decades!! Just look at the facts... After they closed up shop during the early 70's because of their refusal to adapt the DS and SM to encroaching EPA and DOT regulations (admittedly these cars were never going to comply with our rules at that time) you would always hear propaganda released such as "The BX was designed with the American market in mind" or as our company used to be told by them.. "The CX wasn't able to meet US safety standards (which WE PROVED wrong) but we intend to import the next generation (XM)..."... what happened when they introduced the XM? They came up with other excuses, and within a few years after the XM they even closed up the Peugeot sales operation.!! Ever since then, all we hear is "the C5 would make an excellent car to return to the US with" or now "The DS line... blah blah blah..... "
The fact of the matter is that PSA management is not willing to make the commitment and investment that would be necessary to establish their brand back here, and with their ongoing financial issues they need to contend with in their home market they most likely never will be willing to take the leap and try to make a go of it again here.
What my company used to try to persuade them of is that they don't need to sell tens of thousands of cars here in order to be successful... They could very well succeed here if they had REALISTIC goals and expectations and could be satisfied as being a niche player at first, and then growing a network organically and slowly over time. But, they will never accept that kind of thinking.. to them, if they can't come in with a big splash and go from zero to hero overnight, they're not willing to play...
So, as a result of these unrealistic expectations, I guarantee everyone in the USA that you will never again see Peugeots or Citroens (including the new DS brand) being officially sold here.
As for Renault, they don't need us.. Ghosn already has thousands of Renaults being sold here with mediocre success in the guise of cars like the Nissan Versa!!!
And that's it for French cars in America! ;o)
