The Citroën Type C was a light car made by the French car company Citroën between 1922 and 1926 with nearly 83,000 units. Known as Citroën 5HP or 5CV in France, the Citroën was the second car model built and marketed by André Citroën, between 1922 and 1926. It was also the first mass-produced car to follow the 10 hp \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”Type A \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”(June 1919); they were the first European mass-produced cars.

The first color in which it was made was yellow (a light \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”grapefruit-like\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” yellow) which earned it the first nickname \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”petite citron\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” (small lemon). It was also nicknamed \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”boot tail\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” or \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”boat deck Citroën\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”, which refers to the tapered rear of the small car\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s body, and also \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”Trefle\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” (cloverleaf), which refers to the shape of the three-seater version.
