Plastic Omnium (Levallois, France) has launched production of its first all-thermoplastic rear-opening module to equip the new Peugeot 308. Designed in the ∑-Sigmatech research and development center in Lyon and produced in two plants in France – Langres (Haute-Marne) and Fontaine (Territoire de Belfort) – the tailgate weighs 12 kg, or 3 kg less than the equivalent product made of steel. In addition, the new tailgate offers carmakers greater freedom of design and is entirely recyclable.
