Founded in 1919 by French industrialist André-Gustave Citroën. Citroën earned a reputation for innovation and revolutionary engineering. Its history of innovation began with introducing the first industrial mass production of vehicles outside the USA and pioneered the modern concept of creating a sales and services network that complements the motor car. Within eight years Citroën had become Europe's largest car manufacturer and the 4th largest in the world. In 1934, Citroën secured its reputation for innovation with the Traction Avant, the world's first mass-produced front-wheel drive car. In the 50s, Citroën also produced the world's first hydropneumatic self-levelling suspension system, on the revolutionary DS, the first production car with disc brakes, swiveling headlights, and so much more to create more than a Legend.
