At the same time, according to the head of the French brand Linda Jackson, while motorists will buy cars on diesel fuel, the company is not going to abandon them.

Citroen is going to expand the range of cars with zero emissions. Next in line is the successor to the Citroen C4 Cactus hatchback. He will make up the company already on the market electrified models of the brand E-Berlingo MultiSpace, C-Zero and E-Mehari. The appearance of the new product in the 2020th was confirmed by the general director of the company Linda Jackson in a conversation with AutoNews. It will be based on the expanded version of the CMP PSA Group platform. Today, such a platform can be found on the Peugeot 208 and Opel / Vauxhall subcompact hatchbacks, as well as the small Peugeot 2008 and DS3 Crossback SUVs.

 It can interact with gasoline and diesel engines, as well as with electric power plants.

 Jackson noted that while diesel cars will be bought, the brand will not write them off. At the same time, by 2025 the entire Citroen model line will have electrified versions. The brand will make an important step towards this goal next year: each new Citroen model will receive a PHEV or EV.
