Citroen would present a small "DS" in Geneva
- Citroen could be reborn has its way, the 2 CV -
Very recently, we announced that the French manufacturer intends to reborn the legendary Citroen 2CV.
This legendary car was produced in 5,114,961 copies between the years 1948 and 1990.

In all likelihood, the next "DS" making reference to the Citroen 2CV was unveiled in Geneva in March, in conceptual form.
