Fukang to be replaced by hatchback Elysee.

June 5, 2008 - The production of Fukang model under Dongfeng Citroen will be stopped and Fukang will be replaced by hatchback Elysee, according to a dealership of Dongfeng Citroen in Beijing.

Dongfeng Citroen will change all the labels of its vehicle models into big labels connected with the air grid. At present only Fukang is attached with a small label. The successor to Fukang will also acquire a big label like Elysee and C-Triomphe. The production of Fukang will be stopped before labels are changed and Fukang will be replaced by hatchback Elysee. The upcoming hatchback Elysee is likely to be powered by a 1.4L engine, the dealer told reporters.

Now the 2008 Fukang is priced at 70,800 yuan ($10,187) by its manufacturer, while the selling price in Beijing dealerships is actually 67,000 yuan around. As it goes on sale, the hatchback Elysee is likely to maintain the same price as the Elysee sedan's at the lowest 73,800 yuan.

Re: Citroen Fu Kang (Citroen ZX) and Elysee

Very interesting idea to create a model exclusively for china. But the front lights seems to me a tribute to Alfa 156...

The new Citroen C-Elysee sedan model sold 7,500 units in January this year and this high sales record has encouraged the joint venture DPCA to launch its Citroen C-Elysee hatchback model to meet the market demand.

In 2008, the sales of DPCA's new Citroen C-Elysee hit 55,205 units, rising 75% from its sales in 2007 and exceeding this sedan model's sales target by 10%. The new Citroen C-Elysee posted the fastest sales growth last year for the first time in China's sedan segment of this kind.

In January, the Dongfeng Citroen series saw its retail sales reach 12,414 units, up 107% year on year, and the Dongfeng Peugeot series sold 6,750 units, with the new Peugeot 207 model showing a sign of strong growth.

For better sales growth in the recovering market, Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen has decided to launch three new Citroen models this year: the new C-Elysee hatchback, C-Quatre sedan and new C5.

I'm really surprised to see such crude rear door hinge welds in 2009.
