Giants off the assembly line: Three small favorites is soon past

Each 17. car that ran out from the Danish negotiators in 2016, was one of the three small søskendemodeller from Peugeot, Citroen and Toyota; 108, C1 and Aygo.

It was then, a mini-car was on many residents ' wish list, and since the triplets share of the market dropped slightly, along with minigruppens general popularity. Both the Citroën C1 and the Toyota Aygo has, however, maintained their ranking on the top 20 list of the most sold car in the year.

It does not, however, that it soon is over for danskerfavoritterne. In 2021 have Peugeot, Citroen and Toyota have chosen to stop the cooperation to build mini-cars, and there will therefore be three direct successors to the current models.

The writing bilistorganisationen FDM.

None of the three automakers have announced something officially out, what will replace the popular models. Certain it is, however, that Toyota buys Citroen and Peugeot out of their jointly owned factory in Kolin, the Czech republic, where all three cars today being produced.

Cooperation on minibilerne took its beginning back in 2002, and three years after, the three models launched with 92 percent of the same parts. Just the ability to do three cars with many of the same parts got the cost in the bottom, and it was, according to the FDM core of the cooperation.

Since, however, much has happened, in particular the two French brands. Their moderkoncern, PSA, for example, have bought the German Opel and created undermærket DS. This makes it theoretically possible to spread the cost out on the several cars within the same group, but if the PSA is going to do it, is unknown.

Both Toyota and PSA are according to the FDM interested in hitting the customer group, who previously went after minibilerne, but whether they will bet on the same end of the range or another is unclear, as well as the transition to electric operation are also lurking in the wings.

On the other hand it is quite certain that Toyota, Peugeot and Citroën continues to go down - even after 2021. The three automakers are cooperating is still on the vans and will continue to build triplets Citroën Jumpy, Peugeot Expert and Toyota Proace.

in Addition, the PSA from the end of next year will build a new small van for Toyota, as being sister to the Citroën Berlingo, Peugeot Partner and Opel Combo. Three cars earlier in the autumn was voted this Year's Van in Europe in 2019.
