Produced for 21 years, this car was one of the economic engines of Europe. The predecessor of today’s modern light trucks with a “double chevron”, the compact Citroen C15, appeared on the car market in the already distant year 1984 and already with the start of sales it became a real hit.
According to the car manufacturer, 1,235,042 units of the little “bakery” were sold. Its series production was discontinued at the Vigo plant in Spain in December 2005. It seems not so long ago, but although with a recognizable look, not many of us are familiar with the essence of this car.
The Citroën C15 is a classic-looking van, the successor to the well-known Citroën Acadiane, which replaced the “duckling” Citroën 2CV, which in turn pioneered the class of the so-called. vans from the 1950s to the 1970s.
The C15’s economy, driven by a favorable selling price and low running costs, is the main reason for the car’s outstanding service life, in almost all European markets. Its practicality and reliability attract even the most demanding customers from the very beginning.
From bumper to bumper, the C15 is only 3.99 meters long (width – 1.63 meters, height – 1.8 meters), the length of the cargo compartment is 1.64 meters, and its useful volume – 2.67 cubic meters. At the same time, the car’s own weight is very low. It ranges from 600 to 765 kg, depending on the modification.
