Citroen SA managing director Xavier Gobille is ecstatic to have relaunched two brands within so many months, and with five brand new models for the local market. 

Gobille says: "Most of our customers were not even aware that Citroen had left, mostly because the chevron logo has still been prominent next to the Peugeot logos at dealers and workshops across the country."

But, Gobille says immense research was conducted where customers are placed in a sort of clinic to study their reaction and interaction with Citroen cars, and it's been based on that very outcome that the mother-ship has decided it's a good calculated bet to relaunch in SA. Time will tell.
