TRNAVA-based carmaker PSA Peugeot Citroën will lose one of its crucial car models. The production of Citroën C3 Picasso, which represents about one third of plant’s outcome, is likely to move to Spain, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote in its October 3 issue.

The management of the company says it will not lay off any employees and that the Trnava plant may produce a new Opel model.

The production of Citroën C3 Picasso will possibly move to Zaragoza where US carmaker General Motors has a factory. According to Hospodárske Noviny, the reason for moving the production is the closer cooperation between PSA and General Motors. The change should take place in 2016.
