{{ $t('Summary') }}

The Citroën Méhari is a passenger car of the Citroën brand that was produced between 1968 and 1988. The car is based on the chassis and engine of a Citroën 2CV, with a body made of ABS plastic. There was a front-wheel drive version and a four-wheel drive version. The name refers to the word méhariste, a French colonial soldier from Algeria, who rides a camel.


{{ $t('History') }}

This lightweight off-road vehicle was used for recreational purposes, but also used by the French army and Gendarmerie. The same concept, with the body and engine of a 2CV, was also used for production in the developing world. The Citroën FAF (Facile à Fabriquer) was an aluminum version of the 2CV that somewhat resembled a Méhari and was intended for Africa. The Dalat was produced in Vietnam. There was also the Pony version, which was produced in Greece. The 4×4 version was added to the program in 1979. However, it remained a rare appearance, less than 1500 have been sold. Competitor Renault brought the Renault Rodeo on the market, based on a Renault 4. However, it was not exported much outside France. In 1970 the Méhari was exported to the United States.
