HOUSTON (Sept. 30, 2008) — ExxonMobil Chemical Co. will be the supplier of four interior components of the Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner, manufactured by PSA Peugeot Citroen Group.
The instrument panel, door panel, and upper and lower trim will be made with ExxonMobil's Exxtral performance polyolefins.
PSA Peugeot Citroen is the first automotive original equipment manufacturer to use the Exxtral BMU141 polyolefin for instrument panels. ExxonMobil said the product was selected for its balance of impact strength and stiffness and because it is easy to mold. It also is lighter in weight than some of the alternatives, the company said.
