The Mehari has been on the market since 1968. Its name derives from the French L’arabe Mahari, which means camel in Tuareg. The Mehari is light, sturdy and can take 400 kg of luggage. The exterior and interior are of plastic which makes the car easy to clean by rinsing it off with water
Mechanically the car is identical to the Citroen 2CV, the chassis, the suspension and the engine are the same. This immediately made the care popular because of its proven reliability of the 2CV. The target group is different from that of the 2CV; the Mehari is often sold to private people as a pleasure car, for instance to go to the beach.
The Mehari became a success: some 145.000 were produced. Apart from private people, the Spanish army and the Gendarmes de St Tropez also bought the Mehari. As can be seen in the famous films of Louis de Funès.
The Mehari was a car with a high fun factor. Everybody happy, the sun is shining. Wind in your hair and the windshield can still be angled forward. The Mehari stood for trouble-free driving. It had the simple but tested Citroen mechanism and a body that did not rust.
