The Citroën 2CV (French: Deux chevaux) was a popular front-wheel drive car produced by Citroën, with an air-cooled two-cylinder four-stroke boxer engine. It was generally known as the Ente in Austria and Germany and the Döschwo in Switzerland. As the first front-wheel drive panel van, the 2CV AU, also known as the „Kasten-Ente“, quickly became a cult car. The panel van could not deny its direct relationship to the 2CV, its functionality and the model variants that always kept up with the times. The 2CV AU, AZU, AK and AKS dominated the road scene in France and Europe for three decades from 1951 until they were replaced by the Acadiane in 1978. The vans based on the 2CV, which were introduced in the spring of 1951, differed from the saloon from the B-pillar onwards. From then on, a box-like, spacious luggage compartment was added, which could be loaded through two hinged doors at the rear. Citroën called the van „Fourgonnette“.
At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.
Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.
Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.
We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
