Citroen 2CV (1948-1990)


The Citroën 2CV was first penned in the 1930s by Pierre-Jules Boulanger and by the outbreak of WWII several prototypes had been built. A strange looking prototype was first seen in Citroen's Paris factory in 1938.  It subsequently became the Deux Chevaux or 2CV.

With four doors and room for four adults and their luggage the car was equipped with a 375 cc twin cylinder engine.The trusty Citroen 2CV  would become part of the driving force in helping post-war France return to mobility. The 2CV was first introduced in 1948 and by the time production came to an end in 1990, some 3,872,583  had been built by Citroen.
 

In addition there where some 1,246,306 odd  commercial vehicles produced based on the 2CV for the same period.
