Citroen celebrates 90th birthday
Citroen have been producing vehicles bearing the firm's double chevron logo for some 90 years. France's third biggest car manufacturer can look back on an illustrious past. The little Citroen 2CV (who couldn't love this swing on wheels?) is probably the best-known vehicle throughout the world and became the cult car for a whole generation. Better known as "The Duck," it was the French counterpart to the VW Beetle. The car was first built in 1948 and production finished in 1990 after more than 3.8 million units had been sold. The company was bought in 1975 by French competitor, Peugeot. Since then, vehicles have been jointly developed and produced under the PSA banner. Citroen have recently announced the introduction of a new emblem.
