Citroens H van is typical of the French. Its unconventional looks gave it the look of an old shed but it was an exceptionally practical design and was used in many different industries. Even the French Police used them and referred to the H van as the Salad Basket. Although the majority of French people used to call them Pig Nose. Both terms were fairly derogatory considering its practicality and simplicity.
The Citroen H van design was effective with its unitary body with no separate frame, four wheel independent suspension and front wheel drive allowing a flat floor low to the ground perfect for commercial use. The body panels are ribbed which adds strength without increasing weight, flat panels were braced from inside ideal for carrying heavy loads.
Today the free thinking radicals at Citroen can be proud of their quirky design as the H van has definitely got that je ne sais quoi as has developed its own cult status amongst Citroen enthusiast across the world.
