PSA Peugeot Citroen has taken bold action in reducing the costs of development and production by aiming to reduce its model lineup from 45 to 26 models by 2020. Another benefit will be more efficient use of research time and resources as focusing on 26 models instead of 45 will be easier.

These plans are part of a broader "back in the race" plan that will also include expansion into China. PSA Peugeot Citroen wants to expand production by 2020 with help from its partner Dongfeng.

This is a good thing to do, less vehicles = more focus on those 26 models. Looks like we can expect some better quality from Citreon in the future.

45 is a lot of models. I can see why they would want to reduce that number. I wonder what their new strategy involves other than just reducing the number of vehicles and entering China. Are they going to try to consolidate the models onto common chassis perhaps?

It does, less development to do = better attention to quality on the rest. In the end a big win win situation for all sides.

plus having less models makes it so that you can target the models more specifically and it'll make it easier for consumers to choose from

Exactly, more options, more to look at, more confusion for customers.
Reason why some companies keep things simple and only sell a few products and sell them like crazy rather than offering multiple things

sounds like this is on par with what most of the industry is doing. More and more makers are turning to a core of global vehicles that can be slightly altered for respective markets. The most visible example is Ford...
