The Citroën C4 Cactus is one of the brand's most successful models in recent years, so much so that the automaker has announced it will increase production of the crossover and expand sales outside Europe.

The automaker will sell the C4 Cactus in Australia and potentially southeast Asia, Citroën CEO Linda Jackson said. The model has proven to be more popular than the company expected, which is why Citroën decided to offer it outside Europe as well. Initially, the C4 Cactus was only intended for European markets, with Citroën estimating annual sales of 70,000. However, the carmaker sold 74,000 units since the car launched in France in June 2014.

"We are ahead of where we thought we would be and we are increasing production," Linda Jackson told Autonews Europe in an interview. The executive added that the brand will build 10,000 additional units a year at the Villaverde plant near Madrid.

Citroën CEO also said the car's success proved that the decision to offer a different car from mainstream rivals was correct. "When people first see it they like or don't like it. I would rather we had that reaction instead of always being No. 4 on people's shopping lists," Jackson said.

A recent article on Jalopnik on the Cactus sent the Americans frothing for it and going by the comments they want it. Unfortunately one successful model isn't enough the break into the US market (again)...

Hang on. There is something wrong with those statistics. If they anticipated sales of 70,000 per year, then in 14 months they should have sold 81,000 not 74,000.

This article a was first published in June 2015 so there was an extra 4000 in the calendar year. Just wish it was 4001 :(

Yeah sounds good....... here is a smiley I made especially for the occasion
< The forum can have that if they want it

I thought I had read somewhere that the sales of were not very good but that was to be expected on a car like this (unusual)

Did I imagine that :?
