CitroŽn is well on its way to the biggest producer in Europe. As the first he introduced the assembly line and tries to organize firmly its model range, taking the successful type A as a starting point. With the significantly stronger engine it was faster than the vehicle shown above. It will be offered now as technically less complex and probably less expensive to produce Type C.

Actually, the car would be yellow, the preferred color of the type C. It is also known as 5 CV, but that does not change its 8 kW (11 HP). There are changes over time by installing a third rear seat and later there is a wheelbase modification. With more than 80,000 units sold it is the most successful CitroŽn in the period up to World War II.
