During its official launch, on 7 October 1949, during the Paris trade fair, which was held at the Grand Palais, the 2CV that was presented to the public for the first time had no interior or exterior rear-view mirror. In fact, it was quite rare for the popular vehicles of the time to have them even though rear-view mirrors for cars did first appear during the 30’s. It was only during the 50’s that the first 2CV exterior rear-view mirrors made an appearance. However, they were only on the driver’s side. First in the shape of a circle, with a gooseneck, they were directly fixed on the front left door at the level of the hinge of the swinging glass. From the mid-60’s, the 2CV exterior rear-view mirror became a trapezoid, a shape that would no longer change until 1990, when the last model was produced at the Citroën de Mangalde factory in Portugal. For numerous years, the left front rear-view mirror was just an accessory that was only available as an option because only the interior rear-view mirror had been made mandatory at the end of the 60’s. It was serially assembled in the sedans only from 1971 given that the requirement for any private vehicle to have a rear-view mirror on the driver’s side started only from 1st July 1972. The right rear-view mirror was offered in series only over the very last model years of the 2CV sedan. However, please note that the presence of this component was not mandatory at the time and neither is it required by the legislation today. On the other hand, unlike the 2CV sedans, these exterior right rear-view mirrors had made an appearance previously in series in the 2CV light vans. In fact, the decree of 20 November 1969 made it mandatory to have exterior left and right rear-view mirrors for all vehicles with a bodywork like a station wagon or estate car and, more generally speaking, for all the vehicles enabling the transport of equipment and whose interior rear-view mirror did not provide any visibility.
