If it has grown in the 90s and 00s you will surely remember that the market has found options for three-door and coupe cars, especially at affordable prices. Coming today, you won't even find a three-door version of a model, while coupes are counted on the fingers of one hand, and those that are priced at over € 35,000.
But why is this happening? Peugeot CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato in a recent interview gave his own explanation, arguing that automakers do not despise bivalve cars, but there are other priorities, saying:
I love these cars, but today there are three other areas that prevail.
More specifically, these areas are electric cars, 5G connectivity and autonomous driving technologies. As you can see, these categories absorb a great deal of the money companies spend on their R&D departments.
