Internet reports suggest that current PSA Peugeot-Citroen CEO Philippe Varin is to step down next year, while the Citroen C1 gets a revised specification

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.
