5 interesting facts about Citroën
- The company came into the spotlight as early as in the first year of its existence: there were 10 000 Citroën cars sold in 1919-1920 period.
- In 1923 André Citroën, the founder of the company, started the production of toy cars – exact copies of real models. More than 30 000 items were sold in the first decade.
- In 1925-1934 André Citroën rented the Eiffel Tower for placement of advertisement. The “Citroën” word was made of 125 000 electric bulbs. It was accompanied with decorative illumination in the form of comets, stars and Zodiac signs.
- One of the company’s iconic cars - Citroën 2CV - was so popular that the queues for it stretched out for five years. That is why the car was more expensive on the used car market: there was no need to wait for it. By the way, Citroën 2CV, that debuted on the Paris Motor Show in 1948, was in production up to 1990. It is one of the best-selling cars in history: 5 114 940 car units were sold in those years.
- A famous sculptor and car designer Flaminio Bertoni was the developer of another iconic car of the company – Citroën DS; it was presented in 1955. Reportedly, when creating exterior he was inspired by his wife who was a ballet dancer. As a result, the car exterior perfectly combined elegance, simplicity and originality. Even at that time, the car could boast hydro-pneumatic suspension, disk brakes, hydraulic power steering and semi-automatic gearbox. In 1962 the French President Charles de Gaulle came under shooting attack in Citroën DS. The driver took in the situation quite quickly and decided to use the advantages of the hydraulic suspension. Having increased the road clearance and speed, he managed, despite two perforated tyres and 14 bullets that entered the car, to take the President and the First Lady of France away from shooting attack.
