History of the CitroŽn Dyane
The CitroŽn Dyane was produced between 1967 to 1983 coming to a total 1,444,583 of made. The panel van Acadiane was derived from the Dyane.
The Dyane was an offshoot of the CitroŽn 2CV, intended as an answer to the increasingly popular Renault 4 which was eating into 2CV sales since launched in 1961. Like the Renault 4, the Dyane was designed from the outset as a hatchback with some other styling differences such as conventional round headlamps set into the front fender with a squared stainless steel trim ring (as opposed to the old-fashioned separate units found on the 2CV) and stainless steel wheel embellishments as standard.
It is often mistakenly thought that the Dyane was intended to replace the 2CV, but it was aimed slightly higher in the CitroŽn range (somewhere between the 2CV and the Ami) and it attracted a different clientele that sought the versatility offered by the Dyane.
In 1969 on UK shores the car cost £648, the equivalent of £9100 today.
