CitroŽn Fukang 1992-2009

The Fukang was the first in a range of cars produced for the Chinese market by the Dongfeng Peugeot-CitroŽn Automobile group, a joint venture between the French PSA Peugeot CitroŽn and a Chinese manufacturer Dongfeng.

The first Fukang appeared in 1992 as a semi-knock down production, rebadged CitroŽn ZX hatchback. The car was called the Fukang DC7140 in China, the name translating as ĎProsperity and Healthí in Chinese. Later on, the DC7160 with a fuel-injected 1.6 liter engine was added to the lineup. 17,000 of the SKD ZXs were built until late 1996, when Dongfeng's own two plants in Wuhan province became up to speed and local production commenced. Local capacity was 150,000 per annum.

Two years later, the first of a number of special Chinese market CitroŽn models was launched when the CitroŽn Fukang 988 arrived. Presented in September 1998, this was a saloon version of the Fukang DC7160 and originally featured the larger 1.6 litre, fuel-injected engine. The saloon Fukang was developed by specialist engineering firm Heuliez, who also developed a long wheelbase limousine version called the Fukang 988 VIP. The saloon versions continued until 2003, when they were replaced by an updated version of the theme, the CitroŽn Elysťe. However, the hatchback Fukang continued to be part of the Chinese CitroŽn range until 2009. On February 26, 2009, the new facelifted CitroŽn C Elysťe hatchback finally replaced the Fukang. These models had also been joined in 2006 by the CitroŽn Xsara, Picasso and C-Triomphe.
