Head of strategic planning Xavier Peugeot refused to name the exact timing of the emergence of a successor C4, but said that next year the automaker will present a “remarkable car”.
“It will be bold and modern. Not so boldly, of course, like the citroën Ami 60 years ago, but the market we will vzbudorazhen.
It will not be classic and never will be conservative – such approaches, we strongly rejected,” – said a top Manager.
Most likely, Citroen just want to distance themselves from the history of the C4 and call a novelty otherwise.
It is expected that the car will fall on the old platform EMP2, and more compact, called the CMP. It already underpins the new Peugeot 208 and Opel/Vauxhall Corsa.
New “trolley” implies that the model will be fully electric. Thus, the French engineers want to introduce a competitor Volkswagen ID.3.
