    The Ibishu Covet, if it was made in France, and it was really small
    NOW ON REPO! --- https://www.beamng.com/resources/autron-petitron-autron-p1.21876/




    Short description of the car
    Autron Petitron (or P1) is a small and simple French car based on a Ibishu Covet, it's mostly known in France as a car that can drive on narrow streets without any troubles, and it was a really cheap car to buy. It was released to consumers in middle of 1989, and it was a great opportunity for first time drivers, and for poor people.

    Naming explanation
    Autron company name was made by taking 3 letters from the Citroen name, and Automobile.
    Petitron also takes 3 letters from Citroen, and takes the word Petit (Small in French).

    History, and the development
    Autron appeared in 1978 as a company that makes the car engines, and electronics for the cars, their engines are very cheap, and simple to build, and with that, 3 years later, in 1981, they where popular in the motor and car electronic industry. Somewhere in 1985, Autron has partnered with Ibishu, because of this, Autron announced that they will build their first vehicle based on a Ibishu car, but they will make it smaller, cheaper, simple, and easy to understand, but for that, they need to wait for Ibishu to make the blueprints of the new vehicle that they planning to make in the future. In a late of 1986, Ibishu made the first blueprints of the new car named "Covet", and these blueprints has been copied, and sent to the Autron. After getting the blueprints, the development has started. The main things that changed, are the size of it, making it much shorter than the original Covet's size, different rear and front design, and different interior. The interior has minor changes, such as removing the rear seats for more space, no headrests on a seats to save costs, and the position of the center climate control vents. In 1988, 2 years of development and 1 year after the Ibishu Covet was released, Autron showed the concept car to the public named Autron PV1 (Petite Voiture). Later, they renamed the car to Petitron, and P1 for international markets, and in 1989, the car was released. In 1990, Autron made a version of the Petitron for the US market, and it has the wide bumpers, and different engine options. In the same year, Autron made the sport line up based on Petitron, called SportPower, it has 3 versions, SportC, SportS, and SportL, each one has DOHC version of the engine, but they are modified to be much powerful than the regular versions of Petitron, Only SportL had a turbo version and NA version, when the other 2 had only NA version. Autron in 1996 released Indian spec version of the car called Inde (India in French), this is the only version that had 3 Cylinder engine, and sold only in India of course. Autron Petitron ended its production in 2000, and 2005 for Inde, and Facelift, with the amount of sold over a 20 Million cars in total.




    This is my first mod that's not a config pack, or Automation export mod, i never made a mod like this in my life, and it's very satisfying to learn something new to me, and with that making something that my imagination can make. I started modding something based on Ibishu Covet on October of 2021, and i was making Cherrier H200 back then (those who are on official BeamNG discord server back then, you probably seen it), but it was like more a thing to learn how to mod things, how these things working and how to understand them, and after i finished making the Cherrier H200, i didn't released it, instead, i decided to work on a something major than just replacing the badge textures to the different ones, this time i decided to make something small, and on December 9th of 2021, i started making concepts for the new mod (you can take a look at one of the concepts below), that was originally planned to be a Japanese car, but instead, i made it French again, but instead of Cherrier, i decided to make the new brand, called Autron, and it's based on Renault, Aixam (google it), and Peugeot, and also based on my imagination. Even tho it's still a Covet clone, bootleg, whatever you want to call it, it is much customizable than a covet, i don't mean it has many bumpers, or 100 variations of the tailgate, i mean that it has separated parts from the body, such as dashboard, engine bay things, and other, and not also the body has separated parts, rear panel / fascia for example has separated badge, when the Covet one has it not separated. Since it's my "first" mod, i don't have high expectations for the good quality, or "dev" quality, and i will upload the released version on the forums first, and if i can, i will upload the mod to the repo as well, hope you will understand me, and have a great day!

    Please, give some attention to this message if someone knows how to change Skin UV (in blender, not in paint net)
    This mod uses Covet's skin UV, which makes ALL skins to look ugly and very hard to make, due of this, i'm searching for someone, who can help to add the new Skin UV to all 3 unibodies in this mod. If you have some modder who also helps to make skin uv's for mods, send to him my profile page. Thanks for understanding.

    Oh and one thing, feel free to use the brand name for your mods, no credits needed


    (oh god the page is lagging after all of this miles of texts)

    Though i'm not sure when i will make it.
    Still, nice suggestion
    --- Post updated ---
    I was inspired by Chisai, so it is very similar to it
    --- Post updated ---
    Great idea, i'm already making the model and textures for it.

    The taillights reminds me of the early 2000 Peugeots like the 306
