Citroën (French pronunciation: [sitʁoˈɛn]) is a major French automobile manufacturer, part of the PSA Peugeot Citroën group.
Founded in 1919 by André Citroën, Citroën was the first mass-production car company outside of the USA  and pioneered the modern concept of creating a sales and services network that complement the motor car. Within eight years Citroën had become Europe’s largest car manufacturer, and the 4th largest in the world.
By producing Europe’s first all-steel-bodied car, and stunning the world in 1934 with the Traction Avant - the world’s first mass produced front wheel drive car, and the revolutionary Citroën DS, Citroën earned a reputation for innovation and revolutionary engineering, which is reflected in the company’s slogan “Créative Technologie”. The brand celebrated its 90th Anniversary in 2009.
