The small city car with rafters should be abandoned, due to increasingly severe regulations on polluting emissions.
According to recent rumors, the Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108 should not be renewed, the partner of Stellantis Toyota having decided to continue his journey alone with the Aygo.
On the occasion of an interview given to the British magazine Coach, the boss of Citroën Vincent Cobée confirmed this information: “This segment is disappearing due to environmental pressure, it is almost impossible to continue. The fact is also that a Citroën C3 is displayed at an almost equivalent price, if one takes into account the residual values and the costs of ownership. For rental, the price of the two models is almost the same. “
In addition to declining demand in this segment, recent anti-pollution standards almost signed his death warrant. Indeed, these require the creation of increasingly expensive pollution control systems for manufacturers, and their repercussion on the final price could scare away potential customers.
The Citroën C1, along with the Peugeot 107 and 108, were jointly developed with the Toyota Aygo and manufactured in the Czech Republic since 2005, then renewed in 2014 with a second generation. When the Citroën C1 disappears from the range, customers looking for a small vehicle for the city can opt for the Citroën Ami, a 100% electric quadricycle accessible without a license from the age of 14, and which offers a range of 75 km. .
