CitroŽn 10 HP Type B2 and B10

1921 - 1927 (B2)
1925 - 1927 (B10)

The Type B2 was launched at the Paris Salon in 1921.

The B2 represented a development of the Type A with a more powerful engine and quickly achieved success thanks to its robustness and economy. It came fully equipped with electrics and tyres unlike much of its competition.

Andrť CitroŽn launched a fleet of Paris taxis employing a special version of the B2.

The B2 remained in production until 1927.

Body styles in 1922 included Torpťdo 4 Places in Serie, Serie Luxe, Tourisme Luxe and Sport finishes, Conduite Interieure 3 and 4 places, Coupť de Ville Serie and Grand Luxe and Landaulet Grand Luxe. The range was extended to include the elegant Sport Caddy, the Normande, the Taxi, a Cabriolet, a Coupť and a Trefle Torpťdo.

The B10 was launched in 1925 and was mechanically similar to the B2 but employed all metal (tout acier) coachwork.
