    Default Citroen Made in?

    I've always thought the Citroen's we get here are made in France, but are they made in China?

    I was also reading how companies in China manufacture Citroen's for the export market, so its not that they're only made in China for the Chinese market..

    The vast majority of China's major automakers are assembling foreign models of their joint venture partners -- such as Germany's Volkswagen, US General Motors, French Citroen, and the Japanese firms Toyota and Honda.

    All the Cit's for sale in Oz are currently made in France. I saw many ZX's in China a few years back & even an XM. They will need to do well to keep VW-Shanghai at bay though. I'd say we may well see Chinese made Cits soon though. Volkswagens new Polo Classic sedan is Chinese made & may well start a trend if the dollars add up.

    Oh ok. I hope they don't import any Chinese made Cits here... I don't want to lose the French feeling.

    Absolutely! I dont know how well a car called "F.U.K.ANG" would do in Oz anyway! I can hear the jokes already.........

    PS Dots between letters cos it keeps censoring it! Ends up looking like ***ANG........That bites ass as far as I am concerned.....I am sure you spell "THAT" word a different way!

    hehe..

    They're quite expensive aswell. $28,000 for a very plain branded Citroen, not even comparable to the Xsara VTR.

    Seems like ***ang has been able to leased the Citroen brand from the main company in France, but other then that the car designs etc.. are all done independently from the French Citroen company?
