The Renault 4CV was an economy car produced by the French manufacturer Renault from August 1947-July 1961. The first French car to sell over a million units, the 4CV was ultimately superseded by the Renault Dauphin.
The 4CV was a four-door sedan of uni body construction, (11 ft 10 in) in length with front suicide doors and using Renault's Ventoux engine in a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.
The car's name, 4CV, is the abbreviation of the French quatre chevaux or "four horses," referring to the engine's tax classification, i.e., four taxable horsepower.
