Now 2CV belongs to the legendary representatives of the Citroen brand. It all started back in 1936, when the first prototypes were created. Development was carried out even during the war. As a result, water cooling of the engine gave way to air cooling. Introduced the famous independent suspension on four trailing arms with one horizontal spring for each pair of right and left levers.

The official presentation of the Citroen 2CV took place in Paris at the 1948 Motor Show. The car aroused great public interest, reviews were mixed, but2CV did not leave anyone indifferent. The novelty had a peculiar look. Therefore, then, at the auto show, she was more than once reproached for her unprepossessing appearance. The journalists did not suspect that this unattractive mouse-colored car with a grooved body would become a cult car in France.

At that time, many models were designated by the value of the conditional, tax power. For the cheapest models, it was equal to 4-5 tax horses (CV). And in this situation, Citroen offered the 2CV model. The French called it "de chaux", that is, two tax horsepower. French juiceThe spelling "CV" corresponds to our "hp", and it should be deciphered as "cheval vapeur", literally - "steam horse".

The body was of the simplest design, but it was quite roomy. Its length was 3.9 meters, and its weight was 570 kg. Most of the body parts did not require complex stamps and could be repaired by any mechanic. The doors of the car were hinged on the so-called piano hinges - a long rod that secures them pulled out, and the door can be removed without difficulty. The seats consisted of a frame welded from light tubes, on whichThere were rubber bands on top of which the fabric was running. What is especially convenient, the seats could be dismantled without much difficulty in a minute, freeing up space for all kinds of cargo. Plus a tarpaulin roof that could be rolled up and carried bulky luggage. The 2CV's spartan look was complemented by the lack of upholstery and power windows. The lower half of each side glass was folded up and fixed with a primitive clamp.

The luxury variant had bumpers with fangs, moldings, wheel covers and adjustable seats with cushionsmi from spongy rubber. The main highlight of the cabin was the single-spoke steering wheel - the symbol of the Citroen brand.

The independent suspension of all wheels of this car was amazing. It was a construction of the so-called leveling type. Its springs, placed along the body sills, excluded the car's "pecking" when braking and "squatting" when accelerating. Shock absorbers were original - inertial type. Citroen engineers removed the front brakes from the wheels to the main gear.

Air-cooled two-cylinder enginedriven the front wheels. Its volume was equal to 375 cm³, and the power was 9 hp. Aggregated with a 4-speed gearbox as standard. In this configuration, the car developed 65 km / h and consumed 4.5 liters per 100 km.

In 1950, a van based on the 2CV was introduced with a payload of 250 kg. With a standard 375 cc engine, it reached a top speed of 60 km / h and consumed 5 liters.

In 1954, the 2CV was equipped with a more powerful 423 cc / 13 hp power unit. and centrifugal clutch.

In March 1958, the 2CV Sahara version appears,the bottom of the car is very original design with a spare wheel on the hood. Each pair of wheels was driven by one of two 425 cc engines with a total power of 24 hp. The last cars of this version were assembled in December 1960, and a total of 694 units were made.

In 1961, the shape of the hood was changed. A second color appeared - blue, before that all cars were exclusively gray.

In 1963, a new engine of 425 cm³ / 18 hp was installed.

In 1965, an important change took place in terms of safety. Namely, the front doors were hingedstitch on the front hinges, not the back hinges.

The year 1966 brought several pleasant changes: CV joints (constant velocity joint) in the front wheel drive, two additional side windows, hydraulic shock absorbers for the rear wheels.

In 1969, Citroen offers two new engines: the first with 435 cc / 24 hp, the second with 602 cc / 28.5 hp.

There was a four-speed gearbox and rectangular headlights. 2CV developed a speed of 106 km / h.

In April 1976, the number of 1800 pieces. a limited edition 2CV Spot was released.

Another limited edition 2CVCharleston was introduced in October 1980. The car was painted in two colors and had round headlights. At first it was planned to produce only 8000 units, but due to high demand in 1981 this series became the standard model.

The next limited edition 2CV "France 3" in the amount of 2000 pieces. was taken in April 1983.
