The C-Elysee is a compact car produced in China by the joint venture of DPCA (Dongfeng-PSA) in Wuhan, Hubei. The first generation, released in June 2002 as a sedan or hatchback, was a revamped Citroen Fukang (a re-badged Citroen ZX) and offered only in China. Until 2008 the Elysee had been sold alongside the Fukang on the new car market. While upgraded several times in styling and powertrain between 2002 and 2013, the first-gen retained the 2540mm wheelbase and its original structure.

The second-gen, targeting not just the Chinese market, was introduced in September 2012 at the Paris motor show. In China it was launched the next year at the Shanghai motor show in April and rolled off the production line in June at DPCA’s No.3 Wuhan plant. Deliveries started on September 26, 2013.

The new Elysee is a sibling of the Peugeot 301, both coming from PSA’s EMP1 platform and a wheelbase of 2652mm. Only the four-door sedan version is available, powered by a petrol 1.6L engine. Spy shots reveal that DPCA plans a new powertrain option for the 2015 model, which consists of a turbocharged 1.2 liter and a 6AT; the 1.2T will come in two versions of low and high performance.

The second-gen C-Elysee has become the No.1 best-selling Citroen model in China, delivering 9,718 units in December 2013 and 126,479 in 2014.
