PSA to end production of Citroen C3 at Aulnay in November

Article by Anita Panait, on September 2, 2013

PSA/Peugeot-Citroen will end production of its Citroen C3 subcompact at its Aulnay plant near Paris in early November, much earlier than the carmaker had initially intended. Some parts production, however, will continue on the Aulnay site beyond the planned closure date. PSA had initially intended shut down production at its Aulnay site in 2014.

According to spokeswoman for the carmaker, the production line is being shut down early since around half of Aulnay's 2,800 workers have already been transferred to other sites, including Poissy. She remarked that "soon there will not be enough staff left to sustain vehicle assembly." 

PSA's Poissy site, which produces the Peugeot 208 subcompact, will build the Citroen C3, which is the brand's best-selling car in Europe in the first seven months. PSA sold 62,829 Citroen C3s in the first seven months of 2013, compared to 102,823 in the same period in 2012.
