In 1924, Citroën began a relationship with American engineer Edward Gowan Budd. From 1899, Budd had worked to develop pressed-steel bodies for railroad cars, Pullman in particular. Budd went on to manufacture steel bodies for many automakers, Dodge being his first big auto client. In 1928, Citroën introduced the first all-steel body in Europe. By 1930, Budd had created a prototype for Citroën with a unibody and front wheel drive. It was this prototype that evolved into the Onze Légère and 7 CV traction avant of 1934. These cars would set the pattern to be followed thirty years later by the Mini, Volkswagen and nearly every other manufacturer. 1924 was a leap year starting on Tuesday (link will take you to calendar). ...

In the beginning, the cars were successful. But soon competitors, who still used wood structure for their bodies, introduced aerodynamic body designs on their cars. Citroën had no way to redesign the body of his cars and the cars began to be perceived as old-fashioned. The Citroëns sold in large quantities despite the stylistic drawback, but the car's low price was the main selling point and Citroën experienced heavy losses. That encouraged André Citroën to develop the Traction Avant, a car so innovative that to it the competition would have no response. Achieving quick development of the Traction Avant was, of course, expensive and contributed to the financial ruin of the company. André Citroën - Wikipedia /**/ @import /skins/monobook/IE50Fixes. ...

1955 saw the introduction of the DS, which was the first full usage of Citroën's now legendary hydropneumatic suspension system (it was first tested on the rear suspension of the last of the Tractions). The DS featured power-operated steering, brakes, and suspension, and, on their "Citromatic" (Citroën's version of a semi-automatic gearbox) the same high-pressure system was used to activate pistons located in the gearbox cover to operate the clutch.
