    Let's hope they dont go back to mid-80's

    21,000 lay-offs
    Renault was struggling under the weight of chronic overstaffing, with a workforce of 213,700 at the end of 1984. Bernard Hanon before him had planned a workforce reduction of 5000 for autumn 1984, but the measure had not gone through; approval from the socialist government of the time had been late coming, and union pressure had proved daunting. But the measures announced by Georges Besse in 1985 were indeed enforced: the Renaultworkforce was cut by 21,000 over a period of two years, through early retirements, voluntary assisted repatriation for immigrant workers, and lay-offs.

    Prior to 1984 they were sucking up money from the French Government

    Now what were they doing building a low drag low weight vehicleĖ
    The CitroŽn ECO 2000 was much more than just an exercise in styling. Developed during the period 1981 to 1984, it was used to research economical, low weight, low drag cars intended for the next millenium. Many of the lessons learned were applied to the forthcoming AX. ECO 2000 was part of a 50% French State funded programme to build a car capable of achieving 2 litres per 100 km fuel consumption
    built it in 1984, but not for production,

    Of course Renault had the Fuego IN PRODUCTION low weight low dragÖÖ.. Creating cars. And a damn fine car too.

    Now citroen had

    The Oltcit AKA the Citroen Axel (1984 -)was probably the last design uninfluenced by Peugeot - suspension was by torsion bars as opposed to the MacPherson struts used in the LN and Visa. The dashboard was pure CitroŽn, featuring the PRN (Pluie, Route, Nuit - rain, road, night) satellites as fitted to the original Visa and the GSA but rotated through 90 degrees.

    Taken over by Peugeot? Citroen Passe'
