History of the Citroën 7A Traction Avant

Citroen 7A Vintage Tyres

The Citroën Traction Avant is an executive automobile built by the French company Citroën from 1934 until 1957. A total of 760,000 units were manufactured. This Traction Avant was the first to mass-produce three ground-breaking innovations that are still in use today: a unitary body with no separate chassis, four-wheel independent suspension, and front-wheel drive.

The official name is not Traction Avant, which translates literally as "front-wheel drive." The automobile was dubbed following the French fiscal horsepower rating, or CV, which is used to calculate annual car tax levels. Manufacturers, on the other hand, did not alter the model name every time an engine size modification resulted in a change in fiscal horsepower. Citroën, for example, developed the 7CV, unofficially known as the 7A, in 1934. When the 7B model's bigger engine put it into the 9 CV tax bracket, they kept calling it the 7CV. 11CV, 15CV, and 22CV were the other designations. The Traction is known as the "Reine de la Route" in France ("Queen of the Road").
