G Van

Studies for the vehicle that would eventually become the Type H began in 1942 on the instructions of André Lefèbvre. In 1948, a reduced scale version was proposed, powered by the then yet-to-be launched 2 CV flat twin although enlarged to 475 cm3.

Front suspension was akin to that of the 2 CV but with twin suspension arms while the springing medium was by torsion bars front and rear.

G never went into production; the decision was made to employ the 2 CV running gear instead in the AZU/AK series.

 

Had the G ever gone into production, it would have made an ideal light utility vehicle, being both shorter and offering a larger volume than the 2 CV AU 250.
