How LO Can Citroen Go?
CARkeys reports that French automaker Citroen has taken the wraps off a “carbon drawing down” cash-back offer. Under the terms of “GO LO CO2,” UK motorists who purchase a new Citroen with a lower CO2 emissions rating than their current ride receive £500 discounts on Citroen’s C-series of mini cars and the Berlingo Multispace MPV, or £1000 cash back Xsara Picasso compact MPV. You might consider this a cynical ploy capitalizing on political correctness to move moribund metal, but we couldn’t possibly comment. Meanwhile, despite having the lowest CO2 average of any European automaker, The Wall Street Journal reports that PSA Peugeot-Citroëns registrations in France were virtually flat in September, up just .4% over the first nine months of the year.
