Citroën to stop production of Grand C4 Spacetourer Car News

Production of the Citroën Grand C4 Spacetourer will end in July, citing changing customer buying habits and a greater focus on its SUV range.

The seven-seater minivan, which left the factory in 2014, has already been indirectly replaced by the ë-Berlingo and ë-Electric minivans based on Spacetourer vans.

The combustion versions of these models were withdrawn from sale earlier this year.

UK sales of the Grand C4 Spacetourer ended earlier this month, but Citroën says it still has 439 orders to deliver before production ends at its plant in Vigo, Spain. This, the firm adds, demonstrates the car’s enduring popularity.

Citroën has sold 1,026 examples of the Grand C4 Spacetourer in 2021, with 490 more before it goes on sale. In comparison, only 18 ë-Spacetourers have been sold since its launch in October 2020 and 117 ë-Berlingos since joining early last year.

The Grand C4 Spacetourer was sold as the C4 Picasso until 2018 and was also available as a five-seater until 2019 when this small car was withdrawn from sale.

It was introduced as a replacement for the C8 MPV, which had been on sale for two generations since 1994 alongside near-identical sister models from Fiat, Lancia and Peugeot.

Now the French automaker says it wants to focus on promoting and developing its SUV range, particularly its popular C5 Aircross, which was updated earlier this year.

“The Grand C4 Spacetourer offered customers an attractive and modern design and earned a reputation for its unrivaled comfort, interior versatility and spaciousness, as well as its exemplary modularity and light passenger compartment, thanks to the long windscreen and the panoramic glass roof,” Citroen said in his farewell.

“Its popularity is demonstrated by the number of orders that need to be filled before production ends in July.”

Earlier this month, Citroen unveiled a new entry-level variant of the Citroën C3 city car to fill the void left by the Citroën C1 city car, which was phased out of production in January after 17 years on the market.

The new model, dubbed C3 You, is priced from £12,995, making it the new entry point to the Citroën range.
