Current PSA Peugeot-Citroen CEO Philippe Varin is to step down next year, according to media reports. According to insiders, Varin plans to hire ex-Renault COO Carlos Tavares as his replacement. PSA is continuing talks with Dongfeng to buy a stake in the business.

Trim levels for the Citroen C1 have been revised. A new range-topping Platinum trim, available from £10,345, replaces the older VTR+ trim level, while new Edition trim - available from £9670 - replaces VTR specification. The entry-level C1 VT remains, priced at £8095.

Seat has installed 53,000 solar panels at its production plant in Martorell in a bid to make the factory more energy efficient. The manufacturer says its project will save thousands of tonnes of CO2 per year, and will generate up to 15m kWh annually.

Citroën C1

The Citroën C1 is the cheapest of the C1-107-Aygo triplets. The city car is cute, but noisy and basic

How many more facelift / spec changes must the C1 / 107 / Aygo trio endure before the next generation model appears? I'm sure that the existing model is a good prospect at £6000 or so, but you'd have to be mad to spend more on the outgoing model.
