Citroën 1950

2 CV  
11 B  
15 Six D  


Paris Motor Show.
Extremely basic in it's design 2 CV proved to be very successful. The production reached 6,196 units during the year 1950.
Paris Motor Show saw the new van based on the 2CV and new bumpers on the 15 Six.
On November 11th the president of Citroën since 1935 died in car accident.
Mimo swego niewiarygodnego wręcz prymitywizmu, 2 CV odniósł duży sukces rynkowy. Na odbiór nowego samochodu klienci muszą czekać 10 miesięcy.
Na salonie w Paryżu zaprezentowano furgon na bazie 2CV i 15 Six nowymi zderzakami.
