Citroen is a French automotive manufacturing division owned by Stellantis (formerly Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA)).

Citroen was founded in 1919 by Andre Citroen, who had built armaments for France during World War I. Anticipating a change of business after the end of the war, the company began plans to enter auto manufacturing and, taking inspiration from Henry Ford, produced the Citroen Type A shortly after the war officially ended, with the first delivery of the first Citroen vehicle made in July 1919.

Notable achievements of Citroen include the Traction Avant as the world’s first mass-produced front-wheel-drive model with an independent suspension and unibody construction, the DS executive car which spawned a lineup of successful Citroen models, and producing three vehicles that have won the “European Car of the Year” award (CX, GS, and XM).
