Taxi! Citroen Fukang gets There fast in China
Published on January 7, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
A Chinese taxi driver found his Citroen Fukang taxi a tad too boring and decided to sex things up with a neat aero-kit. Well, job well done. The good old Fukang is based on the Citroen ZX and was made in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture. Production finally ended in 2008, the Fukang has since been replaced by the c-Elysee.
Current c-Elysee, it won’t die yet, a facelift is on the way. Now!, more Fukang taxi’s from China.
Red Citroen Fukang taxi from Beijing, in service until early 2008, now replaced by the Beijing-Hyundai Elantra. In early 2008 there were still 12.000 Fukang taxi’s in Beijing, they all had to go before the start of the Olympics in August 2008, they were scraped.
