Citroen - Xenia

The fashion in the early eighties was for motor manufacturers to display scale models of concept cars rather than vehicles that could actually be driven and Citroën was no exception.

Trevor Fiore was responsible for the "break monocorps" Xenia.

Fiore envisaged it as a GT for the year 2000.

Unfortunately the concept was not developed any further.

Throughout the eighties, Citroën turned down the idea of a single volume car, notwithstanding the success enjoyed by the Renault Espace.

Indeed, PSA turned down the idea when Matra first showed them the idea, based on a BX platform .

It was not until the launch of Evasion/Synergie that Citroën produced an MPV.
