Citroen

 

 

 

 

 

The label name Citroen goes back to André Citroen. Approximately around 1900 he created a company for the production of toothed wheels. Starting from 1915, production was changed over to shrapnel shells. This supplied the necessary starting capital in order to start the first European automobile mass production. However, in 1934 bankrupt had to be announced. The Michelin brothers took over the company as largest creditors. Among other things, Citroen manufactured passenger cars and lorries (up to 4 tons payload) for the French armed forces and later also for the Wehrmacht. Production numbers for the Wehrmacht (WH) originate from older statistics – overall 35,392 vehicles from 1940 – 1944. Today, Citroen quotes other numbers - 32,284 vehicles for 1940, 13,871 vehicles for 1941, 9,319 vehicles for 1942, 4,494 vehicles for 1943 and 2,213 vehicles for 1944. This is a total of 62,181 built vehicles from 1940 to 1944.
