The Citroen brand has been around for nearly 100 years (founded 1919) and remains a popular car across Europe. Croft Autotech in Ellon has done a number of Citroen ECU remapping improvements for customers in Aberdeenshire.
Citroen 2CV Car (Their Most Famous Car.)
Despite being very reliable and long lasting the Citroen 2CV was a very cheap car (to buy and run). Designed originally as a simple 2 cylinder car for the rural French farming communities. However, it was also loved by students and hippies as their favourite city car. Over 8.8 million of the cars were produced between 1948 and 1990 when production ceased.
Citroen was the first mass production car manufacturer outside the USA. Consequently they very quickly rose to become the largest car manufacturer in Europe. In addition they were 4th largest in the world.
However, their financial problems have followed them through crisis after crisis since then with various near bankruptcies. The first in 1934 when Michelin stepped in take them over.
Secondly, they again went into bankruptcy in 1974 leading to a merger with Peugeot. The current parent company being PSA Peugeot Citroën (PSA) itself was facing yet another near death experience in 2014.
Rather than the two brands competing directly with each other PSA have now split into three market groupings. Citroen will aim at the lower cheaper end of the market then moving upwards to Peugeot range with the top end being covered by their DS models.
Despite being a front runner in car technology has always been short of cash flow so many models were launched before being developed to their full potential. You can now regain most of that otherwise lost performance and power by our ECU remapping service done at our high performance car clinic here in Ellon.
Looking at its technology history it has always been one of the leaders being first mass produced car factory to introduce:-
- Front wheel drive.
- The modern style disc brakes.
- Hydropneumatic (high pressure) self levelling suspension.
- Swiveling headlights turning with the steering (ideal for Aberdeenshire winding country roads).
- Streamlining cars (using their own wind tunnel).
- First commercial passenger car with a diesel engine.
- Partnered with NSU Motorenwerke to produce the first Wankel rotary engine.
Some of the revolutionary patents listed above were adopted by other companies like Maserati, Rolls Royce and Mercedes Benz. Although a number of other companies also tried to copy and adapt the technology to avoid paying patent royalties.
