Citroën Transforms Vintage Van into Mobile Bike Workshop

Written by 

Working in partnership with Le Coq Sportif, automaker Citroën recently introduced a pair of show vehicles intended to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the company's signature Type H van -- but with the addition of bold colors inspired by the Le Coq brand.

One of the vehicles pays homage to the classic Type H design, while the other, known as the Citroën Jumpy, sports sleeker and more modern lines. Both vehicles are intended to serve as mobile bike workshops and are scheduled to be on display at various Le Coq Sportif events throughout the coming year.

The Type H and the Jumpy can also be turned into workshops for flocking jerseys, should that need arise, illustrating the capacity of both vehicles to serve as functional yet pleasing to the eye. And both vehicles sport Le Coq's signature colors as well as the company logo.

According to a press release, "All the body parts as well as the wheels and the roof racks for transporting two bicycles (on Jumpy only) are painted a luminous white. The elegant white is enlivened by blue and red rectangles scattered across the entire body like coloured blocks – a playful, “arty”, Mondrian-inspired colour scheme that gives a fresh and energetic look to the two show cars."

When it comes to the interior of the vehicles, the Type H aims to capture nostalgia and authenticity. The cabin seats are upholstered in chocolate-toned leather, while the workshop is lined with natural wood.

The Jumpy, by contrast, features black woodwork and white leather seats graced with red, white, and blue stitching.

Both vehicles are fairly compact; the Jumpy is available in three lengths, with the shortest 15.10 feet long.
