Default Intro to Dongfeng Peugeot-CitroŽn

Dongfeng Peugeot-CitroŽn Automobile is a joint venture between the Dongfeng Motor Corporation and the PSA Group, in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China.
The first car of this joint venture was the 1992 Fukang DC7140, this was a CitroŽn ZX, which was given the Chinese name for 'Prosperity and Health'. It was followed by a number of variations made especially for the market, including a saloon version.
Dongfeng Peugeot-CitroŽn Automobile currently produces the CitroŽn Fukang, Xsara, Picasso, and Elysťe, and Peugeot 307 for sale in China, whilst later in 2006 the firm will launch the CitroŽn C-Triomphe based on the C4, and a supermini based on the Peugeot 206, called the C2.
The CitroŽn-Dongfeng joint venture has gone through many variations, since 1984 when CitroŽn sold 2,500 luxurious CX models to the People' Republic of China as a means to get government approval for a joint venture contract to produce automobiles. Dongfeng produces over 100,000 CitroŽn cars annually and is growing rapidly.
Sister brand Peugeothad a separate joint venture in Guangzhou which ended in 1997 - this factory is now a joint venture between Honda and Guangzhou Automobile Group, producing 117,000 units in 2003.
Peugeot's failed venture with Guangzhou Automobile Group had produced the outdated Peugeot 504 pickup truck. The Dongfeng venture in contrast is the first time Peugeot has launched one of its latest models outside of France.

Since 1984, CitroŽn has built cars for the Chinese market.The Xantia and XM V6 Exclusive are sold in China under the local name Fengshen. They are assembled by a small workshop in Huizhou, Guangdong province, near Hongkong.

In China, the import of parts is much cheaper than entire cars due to customs duties and taxes.

Strangely enough, both vehicles use the name XM. The middle of the boot shows the Dongfeng logo, the mother factory of the Fukang ZX. On the right it says Fengshen-Xietuolong. Xietuolong is Chinese for CitroŽn.

Wink Xsara based models

Next, there's the Xsara, which was replaced in Europe by the C4, but which continues to sell in China. The last photo is the new, slightly restyled Xsara Picasso MPV (based off the Xsara) which will soon be replaced in Europe by the C4 Picasso.

Wink C4 & C2

Now, in China there are two C4's: The C4 coupť and the C-Triomphe, basically a C4 with a trunk to better suit Chinese tastes. Its supposed to be a China-only model for now, but they're thinking about eastern Europe. Funny, I saw one here in France a few months ago. The last two photos are of the Chinese C2- its basically a slightly restyled Peugeot 206.

Dongfeng Citroen moves HQ to Shanghai.

Quote:
July 23, 2008 - Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Automobile Co., Ltd. (DPCA) began to move the headquarters of the Dongfeng Citroen brand to Shanghai on July 21. At the farewell evening, Chinese and French executives of the joint venture saw the Dongfeng Citroen team moving eastward to the super-city of China.

At first, Dongfeng Citroen moved its marketing headquarters (also including the administration, HR, PR and finance divisions) from Wuhan, in central China's Hubei province, to Shanghai. The new offices are located in Dongyin Center, Changning District of Shanghai. The eastern Chinese metropolis' advantages in talents, capital and information are expected to boost DPCA's brand recognition and presence in the Chinese auto market, said Liu Weidong, General Manager of DPCA.

Citroen is suffering fierce competition in China with the foray of other foreign brands. Car models it introduced into the market that cannot well satisfy the demand of Chinese consumers also lead to its poor sales locally. In order to change the embarrassment, the company finally made a decision to move the headquarters of Dongfeng Citroen to Shanghai from Wuhan. In addition, it will make a series of adjustments in the brand's sales network, car model introduction, marketing strategy, brand image and others.

The company has established three new marketing platforms, which will be mainly responsible for the sales of Dongfeng Citroen-branded B-class cars like C5, A-class cars like C4 and segmented market-focused products like Fukang and Elysee. The new marketing platforms will help the company better understand consumers' demand, said Yves Moulin, managing director of DPCA.

Apart from internal management personnel changes, DPCA has recruited talents from its well-performed domestic rivals to take charge of its high-end car marketing platform. They will make efforts to reform the operation structure and make a quick response to the demand of consumers, pointed out Yves Moulin.

Founded in May 1992, DPCA is a 50-50 joint venture between Chinese automaker Dongfeng Motor Corp. and France-based PSA Peugeot Citroen. Its sales volume stood at 207,000 units in 2007, up 2.95% from a year ago. Of the total, 92,200 were Dongfeng Peugeot cars and 115,000 were Dongfeng Citroen cars.

DPCA plans to launch three new car models, including the new Citroen Elysee and Citroen C4 this year. The all-new premium C-Quatre (Citroen C4), a model locally made for China's hatchback segment, will go on sale in September. Dongfeng Citroen currently has six models and will build high-end models on Platform 3 to expand the product lineup.

The Shanghai headquarters will attract more marketing talents and resources to Dongfeng Citroen, which is expected to help make a significant breakthrough in its future sales growth.
