Number manufactuder by modification

Post by assembled » Fri Jan 06, 2012 6:15 pm

Hello everyone, for some time now I was trying to find how many BX of each modification were manufactured, but could not find anything but rumours. I am particularily interested in how many 4x4 berlines and breaks came out, but am also curious about other interesting modifications like these the ambulance, Dyana ( http://www.citroenet.org.uk/passenger-c ... /bx-4.html ) leader, digit, etc. What I have heard that there were about 6000 4x4 berlines and 1000 breaks. There also was a diesel version, though haven't heard anyone having one originally diesel, not converted from GTi version.

I've also heard that there were only 12500 leaders:
1985 - 2500 units
1986 - 5000 units
1987 - 5000 units.

4000 Digit cars ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citro%C3%ABn_BX )

Anyone with any additional knowledge?

I dont know how you would get that information, without contacting Citroen, but their was hundreds of different models/special editions over the years.

Are you talking about France, Uk or everywhere?

If its total production then a direct contact to Citroen in France would be your best bet.

The 4x4 information does not ring true with me. In the UK there were around 300 GTi 4x4's sold and approximately double that number of estates sold to my knowledge.
