Innovating yesterday. Still inspiring.
Upon its launch in 1948, who could have predicted its stunning longevity? The Type H continued its career until December 1981, when the Citroën C25 succeeded it.
What is its secret? An especially innovative design for a commercial vehicle of its time. Its cab-forward design, backbone-type frame in corrugated steel and its front-wheel drive transmission work for years. No real major outside change. But always great efficiency in its variations and in all the ways it’s used.
A mythical vehicle? Yes, and a cult object across the world. Often remade into food trucks, it lives on in today’s trendy concepts. Modern vans still take inspiration from its architecture and its design made with intelligent choices, paying tribute to its pure, functional design.
