Earnings in the segment of small cars continues to decline, so manufacturers look at some models.
The downward trend in the "supermini" segment is particularly noticeable in Europe, where in 2017 it included eight percent of all three.
But the makers of all models generate profits from the sale of small cars, mainly due to the strict rules on carbon dioxide emissions and vehicle technology.
According to European media, Volkswagen and PSA have expressed uncertainty about this segment.
Since 2020, VW Herbert Dies has been compromised by poisoning because small cars can not contribute to the reduction.
To meet gas emission standards, VW could raise the price of its smallest Up! for around 3,500 euros.
"I'm not sure how many customers can still get basic models", said Dies.
The PSA announces that it could stop producing its small cars, such as the Peugeot 108 and Citroën C1, along with Toyota, which will no longer form the Aygo model in a community-controlled environment from 2021 onwards.
"The ability of manufacturers to generate profits in this segment is under pressure because of the many technologies we need to add," Maxim Pisat, the operational director of PSA for Europe, went on a rampage.
In any case, the car segment could easily remain without its main accessibility – accessibility.
It is believed that electrification could revive this class, but VW has already said it is not worth it.
