Description

The Citroën 2CV (French: deux chevaux vapeur, literally 'two steam horses', from the tax horsepower rating) was an economy car produced by the French automaker Citroën from 1948 to 1990. It was technologically advanced and innovative, but with extremely utilitarian and deceptively simple Bauhaus inspired bodywork, that belied the sheer quality of its underlying engineering. It was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts. It is considered one of Citroën's most iconic cars. In 1953 'Autocar' in a technical review of the car wrote of, '...the extraordinary ingenuity of this design, which is undoubtedly the most original since the Model T Ford.' It was described by CAR magazine journalist and author LJK Setright as 'the most intelligent application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car.' It was designed for low cost, simplicity of use, versatility, reliability, and off-road driving. For this it had a light, easily serviceable engine, extremely soft long travel suspension (with adjustable ride height), high ground clearance, and for oversized loads a car-wide canvas sunroof (which until 1960 also covered the boot).
