Citroën at work on 2CV replacement – the 3CV

November 4th, 2011 by Darren Cottingham

Fiat pulled it off with its new 500/Bambina, and VW did the same with the Beetle so Citroën is looking seriously at jumping on the retro-sytle bandwagon and bringing back its 2CV.

According to recent reports the French carmaker is making plans to design and develop a modern version of the iconic 2CV. It isn’t expected until 2013 at the earliest and at this stage it is a top secret project. What is known is that the 3CV will inherit the spirit of its ancestor and offer plenty of space and a comfortable ride.

If the 3CV goes ahead it will likely be built on the same PF1 platform that supports the Peugeot 207 and Citroëns DS3 and C3. But it will be smaller than the C3.

More will be revealed next year.
