Citroën reports significant sales growth in first half of 2014

Citroën is enjoying a prosperous first half of 2014 after reporting strong growth in two of its most important markets – Europe and China. The French carmaker's sales grew by seven percent to 624,000 vehicles, and Europe and China accounted for 85 percent of total sales.

The Asian market grew by 13 percent overall, and Citroën gained 16 percent of this with more than 160,000 vehicle sales during the six-month period. A variation of its C4 hatchback was particularly popular, attracting 35,000 buyers, and the car has equal appeal in Europe. Here, Citroën was boosted by a ten percent surge in sales which outperformed overall market growth of seven percent, representing the brand's best performance in a decade.

Spearheading this success in Europe was the C3 supermini with 106,000 registered models, alongside the C4 Picasso MPV that shifted 69,000 units. Citroën can look forward to another fruitful six months following the arrival of its forward-thinking C4 Cactus, which offers a number of innovative features to buyers.

The body includes 'Airbump' panels along each flank, which comprise TP (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) air pockets that absorb impacts and protect against minor bumps and scrapes. The panels also contribute to an eye-catching overall design which is sure to attract motorists to the automaker.
