Journalist and author L. J. K. Setright described it "the most intelligent application of minimalism ever to succeed as a car".

The Citroen Deux chevaux remained on the market from 1948 to 1990 thanks to Flaminio Bertoni’s inspired design.
In The ‘30s the new Citroen management asked the project department to design a car that was able to “transport a paesant wearing clogs and 50 Kg of potatoes, or a wine keg and have suspension to go across irregular grounds without breaking a basket of eggs”.
The T.P.V. (Tre Petite Voiture, French for very small car) project was interrupted by the outbreak of the Second World War. For this reason Citroen destroyed 250 pre-models to save them from Nazies.
In thespring of 1944 another Italian, Walter Becchia, designed the engine. At the Paris Motor Show in 1948 the car made its debut as 2CV.
