2CV Experience Spend a Day in a Deux Chevaux

The Citroën 2CV or Deux Chevaux continues to be iconic in France. In summer months, you can often see a few cruising the smaller roads of Provence. The 2CV was produced from 1948 to 1990.  During those 42-years of production over 3.8 million cars were produced, but relatively few exist today.

The 2CV was designed to be lightweight, easy to service and reliable. Technically well engineered and constructed the 2CV, was affordable and literally designed as a way to transform the French rural population from a dependence on animals (horses and carts) to the automobile.

Now these cars are sought after by collectors and fans. In Provence, is a small company based just outside Aix-en-Provence called 2CV Experience where you can rent by the day or the week. For a unique way of touring Provence, the iconic Deux Chevaux is sure to put a smile on your face.
