“1948年パリサロンで発表されるも、当時はあまりにも奇妙なスタイルに嘲笑を浴び「醜いアヒルの子」と揶揄された。しかし「荒れた農道を走行しても籠の中の卵が割れることなく走れる快適な乗り心地」など、あらゆる面で合理的な設計が市場のニーズで合致しフランスのみならず世界中で親しまれた。1948年から1990年までの42年間、大きなモデルチェンジなしに約387万台生産された世界屈指のベストセラー車、ロングセラー車。”

Citroen 2CV Type A
This vehicle was first introduced at the 1948 Paris Motor Show(Salon de l’Automobile) and its somewhat strange styling earned it the derisive nickname of “ugly duckling” at the time. However, it was marketed as being able to “provide a comfortable ride, even over rough farm roads, which will not break the eggs in a basket” and its practical and rational design was able to meet the varied needs of the market at that time, making it a familiar site not only in France, but around the world. Approximately 3.87 million of these vehicles were manufactured over the course of 42 years from 1948 to 1990 without a major model change, making this the best-selling and longest-selling car model in the world.
