Citroen’s Customized Vans Are Mobile Bicycle Workshops
A Type H and a New Dispatch have been created with help from Le Coq Sportif
At the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, UK last month, car manufacturer Citroën showed off the results of its collaboration with the French sports equipment company Le Coq Sportif. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Type H van, the two brands teamed up to customize an authentic Type H and a New Dispatch in the colors of Le Coq Sportif. The two concept vehicles have had extensive interior and exterior customization work, transforming them into mobile bicycle workshops that aim to combine beauty and functionality.
The Citroën Style Centre and the Le Coq Sportif styling office have put together their creative energy and expertise to develop the two vans, which display Le Coq Sportif’s colors along with the brand’s name and logo on each side. The two converted vans take a stylish approach to bicycle maintenance.
The New Dispatch has a sleek, modern spirit due to its simplicity and white color. It strikes a modern and refined note, and has black woodwork contrasts with white leather seats accented with red, white, and blue topstitching.
The Type H evokes authenticity and nostalgia, with warm, comfortable materials. It has light-colored woodwork made up of different types of wood, like “batipin”, which lines the workshop and the wall where tools are hung. The seats in the cabin are upholstered in natural, chocolate-colored leather to enhance the character of the interior and play on the theme of natural materials.
