The brand introduces the Team Dhoni Edition, a range of C3 and C3 Aircross SUVs inspired by him.

Citroën, a French automaker, unveiled its latest campaign Do What Matters, featuring Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The campaign promotes consumer-centric values.

The Do What Matters campaign will kick off with the launch of Citroën Team Dhoni Edition, a nationwide initiative aimed at rallying fans to support the Indian Cricket Team during the T20 World Championship.

By harnessing Dhoni’s universal appeal, the campaign underscores the importance of substance, excellence, and reliability.
