Citroën Worldwide Production By Nation : 2012

Funky Citroen DS 3

As the second half of PSA, Citroën is 16th in car/LCV making in the world. It has similar sales and production facilities around the world to Peugeot. It too had a demanding year, relying on Europe as much as it does. Total sales were down 13%, and worldwide share slipped from 1.9 to 1.6%.

Production in France dropped 13%, Spain -21%, Brazil -24% and the Czech Rep -26%. Citroën was making more cars than was needed, and were then priced to move inventory. The reduction in 2012 is bringing car production into line with what is really needed.

The colour coding shows most production is in Europe, not a sustainable situation.
