The Citroën 2CV (French: “deux chevaux” i.e. “deux chevaux vapeur”, literally “two horsepower”) was an economy car produced by the French automaker Citroën from 1948-1990.
It was technologically advanced and innovative, but with uncompromisingly utilitarian unconventional looks, 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.
