The Citroën G Van was the 1948 prototype built by Citroën of a small truck which looked like a scaled down version of the H Van, and equipped with an enlarged version of the 2CV flat twin enlarged to 475 cc.

Front suspension was akin to that of the 2CV but with twin suspension arms while the springing medium was by torsion bars front and rear. It was never put into production, the decision was made to employ the 2CV running gear instead in the AZU/AK series, which were not quite as good in terms of volumetric efficiency.

One model of the G Van has survived to the modern day.
