Citroen 2CV: the story of the ‘tin snail’

Motoring Research Logo By Motoring Research team of Motoring Research | Slide 1 of 30: It is now more than three decades since the final Citroen 2CV was assembled in Portugal. And one day, when the internal combustion engine has finally ground to a halt, and motoring as we know it today is the subject of a documentary on the History Channel, the 2CV will be remembered as one of the most innovative and important vehicles of the 20th century. In its day, the 2CV – or Deux Chevaux – was no less groundbreaking or forward-thinking than the technologies being used to forge an autonomous and connected future for the automobile. So, as we mark the anniversary of the ending of 2CV production, let’s take a basket of eggs across a ploughed field to celebrate the life of the ‘tin snail’.
