Citroen Will Build Large SUV for Asia
Autonews

European automaker Citroen has announced that it will begin to produce a large crossover SUV in China between the end of 2014 in early 2015. The production vehicle will be a version of the Wild Rubis concept that debuted in April at the Shanghai auto show. The vehicle will be sold exclusively in China and surrounding Asian countries.

Citroen says it has no intent to bring the vehicle to Europe at this time. Citroen also notes that the production model will be "less radical" than the concept car. Specifically the automaker says the production vehicle won't use the 21-inch wheels seen on the concept.

The vehicle will be approximately 4700 mm long by 1950 mm wide by 1590 mm tall. That would make it similar in size to the Volkswagen Toureg. Citroen has offered no details on pricing at this time.
