Citroën has decided to discontinue the C6 flagship model.

Launched in late 2005, the Citroën C6 is (or better said, was) the only flagship model manufactured in France. Today Citroën will axe its most expensive model, after earlier this year in May they stopped making the right-hand drive version. In the first ten months of 2012, Citroen sold only 556 units of the C6, making this decision understandable.

250 people were working at the Peugeot-Citroen factory in Rennes where they made the C6 luxury car.

French people looking for a local big sedan don't have a lot of options since Renault's Latitude is imported from South Korea and is basically a rebadged Samsung SM5. Renault sold so far this year 3,792 cars, representing a 59 percent decrease compared to the same period of 2011, according to JATO's research.
