Citroen 2CV (1948-1990)

The story of the Citroen 2CV dates back to the 1920s to a market research conducted by Michelin. At the time a lot of people in France were still living countryside and couldn’t afford a car. Michelin was keen to expand their tyre business and wanted to build an economy car. After Citroen’s bankrupt in 1934, Michelin took over the car company. Soon after this Citroen started to work on a new model that would be economical to manufacture, use and maintain.
