Citroen has begun developing a new flagship sedan. It is reported by AutoExpress with reference to Citroen CEO Linda Jackson. According to her, now is the “ideal” time for the release of such a car.

The head of Citroen noted that the new flagship will be special and “somewhat different”, unlike competitors. It is expected that the production of the sedan will begin in 2021.

Novelty will be built on the EMP platform from PSA Group. At the moment, this chassis is used by the Opel Grandland X and Peugeot 508. This architecture supports the installation of electric motors and hybrid systems on cars.

In the model lineup of the brand new product should replace the cars C5 and C6. The big sedan is expected to borrow some stylistic solutions from the Cxperience concept car, presented in the autumn of 2016 at the Paris Motor Show. The length of the prototype was 4.85 m, height – 1.37 m, and the size of the wheelbase is three meters.

All other information about the car is kept secret. Concept Citroen Cxperience equipped with a hybrid power plant, which included a gasoline engine with about 200 hp, 110-horsepower electric motor, eight-speed automatic gearbox and a set of batteries. Exclusively on the electric Citroen Cxperience can travel up to 60 kilometers.

The nearest premiere of Citroen in Russia will be a crossover C5 Aircross. Sales of the car, which is the largest SUV in the line of the French brand, should start in the Russian Federation in the second half of 2019. The car is based on the MP2 modular platform, which is also used on the Peugeot 3008. The crossover is the first Citroen model with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions suspension, where the shock absorbers additionally use two hydraulic stoppers – a rebound stop limiter and a compression limit stop.
