A history of the dealers, the clubs, the racers, raiders and adventurers.

“Citroën in New Zealand’, by Michael Williams is a 96 page book about the people, the dealers, the service centres, the clubs and the individuals who have helped to form and shape the world of Citroën in this country over the last 100 years. Most of the book covers the dealers and the service centres from south to north, and Otago, Canterbury, Marlborough, Wellington, Wairarapa, Whanganui, Manawatu, Taranaki, Hawkes Bay, Waikato and Auckland are covered in this section.

There is a short chapter on Citroën car assembly in New Zealand, and a longer one on the Club scene throughout the country, including the formation of the National Club. The final chapter is about Racers, Raiders and Adventurers, with information and photos of racing Citroëns, and the various 2CV raids over the years.

Citroën dealerships began in many parts of the country from 1922, but generally did not survive the depression years. New dealerships began in the 1930s with the release of the Traction Avant models, and  the 1950s 1960s and 1970s were the best years in terms of sales. New dealerships and service centres began, often established in the provincial areas of the North Island by dedicated and determined individuals who ran successful businesses. Dealerships and distributors have changed regularly over the last 20 years, but after 100 years, Citroëns are still being sold in New Zealand, a feat equalled by very few other manufacturers.

    Needed to find the State / County which is annoying. Also do we need the Leave a reply part

      Thanks John. State/county is now optional. “Leave a reply” is associated with being able to “leave a comment”. I think its is a good idea to enable this
