The Attraction of the Paris Motor Show
Citroën is proud to show off its innovative abilities in creating a city car with the AX. Those who could not go to the Paris Motor Show must have seen its highly symbolic advertising launch featuring the Great Wall of China, underlined with the mantra "Revolutionnaire" ("Revolutionary")!
More than a slogan, a statement which is included in Citroën’s "Eco 2000" research programme. Its objective: to define an economical and modern vehicle with a focus on reducing weight. Results: The 3.5 metre AX weighed just 640 kg. Its interior space is preserved thanks to reducing the size of the engine compartment. In terms of consumption, the AX 11, 55hp, uses just 3.9litres/100km combined even when it exceeds 100 mph. A market revolution!
