Citroen

The relative short distance between the UK and France meant that Citroens relationship was forged early on, with imports arriving in the shortly after the first cars in the 20’s. Citroen also assembled cars in the UK from the late 40’s. Despite the relative complexity and innovation of their cars, Citroens have generally sold well in the UK. Peugeot took over control in 1974 which diluted some of this innovation but allowed the company to survive.

The Citroën 2CV was an air-cooled economy car introduced in 1948. UK assembled cars were produced from 1953 to 1960, then imports officially starting in 1974. It was sold as a 4 door saloon, with the panel van not being an official import. The last model was built in 1990.
