A new report indicates Citroën is taking into consideration adopting a new naming structure.

Citroën's current nomenclature is quite easy to understand as all cars use the letter "C" followed by a number to denote the core model while variations of the core model use names such as "Picasso" for MPVs and "Aircross" for crossovers. There are some exceptions to the general rule as 

Citroën also sells a "C-Zero" and "C-Elysee" as well the utilitarian "Berlingo", "Nemo" and "Jumpy" models followed by "Multispace".

The company’s CEO Linda Jackson has initiated a study to analyze the possibility of implementing a new naming structure for the brand which would better reflect the different types of models. Moreover, the revised nomenclature would further separate Citroën from the now standalone DS luxury brand.

A Citroën spokeswoman has confirmed they are analyzing the prospects of coming out new names, but mentioned it's too early to provide any exact details about the change. According to Ian Fletcher, an analyst for IHS Automotive, Citroën will likely keep the "Picasso" and "Cactus" monikers alive in the new naming system.
