The History of the Citroën

Citroën was pioneered by André Citroën. He was a French industrialist and Freemason. When Citroën was travelling to Poland, he was curious about wooden milling gear. He later bought the patent for the gear and manufactured it using steel. The gear was then used as the herringbone bevel gear on early adopted Citroën cars.

Citroën worked as an arms expert for the French Government during WWI. Before the war had ended, Citroën had been discussing his ideas with two engineers. After the war ended, he founded his company, Citroën. 

Citroën released their first car, the Citroën Type A, in 1919, with four cylinders. It was immensely popular amongst the French. In 1920 Citroën began mass-producing cars. In just one day, they would manufacture 100 cars which were huge at the time. 

Citroën was the first car manufacturer to release a car with front-wheel drive. In 1934 Citroën became the top carmaker in France and Europe. One year later André Citroën died. 

During WWII, the Citroën was seen as one of the enemies of the Reich. They had to keep all their work secretive. 

Citroën survived WWII and introduced the Traction Avant Technology, a huge success.

Citroën merged with Peugeot and thus formed PSA Peugeot Citroën. They released the sporty Citroën DS3 racer and the C4 Cactus. 

Their merger with Peugeot became a huge success and saw them awarded the “International Engine of The Year” in 2015 for their 3-cylinder Turbo PureTech engine. 

Citroën today is still one of the top car manufacturers but not as popular as it used to be. There has been a decline in French carmaker in recent years.
