22nd July 2014

Citroen C3.jpg2014 has proven to be a prosperous year so far for Citroën, as the French carmaker has reported a sales jump during the first six months. Particular success was enjoyed in key markets of Europe and China, which accounted for 85 percent of overall sales. Deliveries rose by seven percent to 624,000 vehicles on the back of strong performance form models across the line-up.

European sales outpaced overall market growth of seven percent with a 10 percent increase, which signifies Citroën’s best results in a decade. In its native France an eight percent rise was reported, while the strongest figures came out of Spain where deliveries soared by 28 percent.

Contributing to the impressive figures was the C3 supermini which shifted 106,000 models, and the C4 Picasso MPV with 69,000 sales. Further growth is anticipated during the second half of the year, as the manufacturer has recently launched new models in the shape of the C1 supermini and C4 Cactus. The vehicles have already attracted sales of 4,500 and 7,000 respectively, demonstrating the appeal of Citroën’s latest design approach.
