A brief history:

Pierre Jules Boulanger took charge of Citroën in 1935 and had the idea to create a car for social classes with low income. He wanted something simple and practical that could transport people and their goods on any terrain in an economical way.

Boulanger wrote the specifications, mentioning he wanted "to make a car that can carry four people and 50kg of potatoes or a keg, at a maximum speed of 60 km/h, with a consumption of 3 litres per hundred kilometres and low maintenance costs."

He enrolled André Lefebvre as engineer and Flaminio Bertoni, nicknamed "golden fingers", as stylist. The project was named TPV meaning 'very small car'.

At first, a single-cylinder engine was considered before deciding on a twin-cylinder, air-cooled unit. The suspension used a torsion rod bundle, rubber blocks, vertical or horizontal springs and hydropneumatic. The start-up was performed, according to prototypes, by a crank and twine starter.

On 2 September 1939, the first prototype was ready to be shown. Unfortunately, several days later, the Second World War was declared and the assembly line used for military equipment.

In October 1948, the first 2CV was presented at the Paris Motor Show. To begin with opinions were divided, but eventually it became the star of the show. Production started in June 1949 and named 2CV A, it's a real success. The press were full of praise on 2CV's ease of use and robustness. In 1951, a van version of the 2CV was launched, it weighed 250 kg with a 375 cm3 engine.

In February 1989, the French production line stopped. With 5,114,940 2CV vehicles produced worldwide, 2CV is an iconic car and a symbol of joy!
