Six themes have been chosen for 2020, including design, innovation on board, energy management, commercial dynamism, sporting achievement and passion.

It belongs to them! Indeed, I confirm our brand's exceptional momentum in 2019 and 2020 with an exceptional performance in the new passenger car market. With the strength of our momentum, we have many assets to leverage, starting with our renewed range and the launch of a real offensive in terms of electrification, particularly with Ami, SUV C5 Aircross Hybrid, ë-Jumpy, but also our new C4 will have a 100% electric version! And then, another major asset: we are constantly adapting as we are now offering our customers the opportunity to order their future car 100% online. That's also what being an 'Inspired by You' brand is all about! Thank you once again for this Trophy and believe me: we have not finished surprising you. Long live Citroën! "
