Firstly defined as an umbrella with 4 wheels, the Citroen 2CV designed by Pierre-Jules Boulanger is now considered by many as “the most intelligent application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car”. The release of this vehicle in 1949 meant the access to cars for all the social classes in France. Since then, this model kept evolving to remain competitive for more than four decades.
