German term or phrase:verkürzte Plattform
"Markteinführung des C2 auf Basis einer verkürzten Plattform des C3"
This is from an article outlining the range of Citroën small cars on the market - including the C2 and C3 models. I'm not entirely sure what is meant by "verkürzte Plattform" here and would be grateful for any explanations.
(My French office partner reckons that the German text is a translation from French and that it refers to the chassis. A possibility?)
