a fully rounded design
Launched in 1934, Renault Celtaquatre derived from Monaquatre (the “quatre” (four) in both names a nod to the engine's 4 cylinders). To start with, this model existed only as a saloon, but coupé, cabriolet, coach and even van (Type ADV 1) variants were subsequently launched.
With a turning radius of less than 5 m (perfect for narrow streets), its trusty engine and its loading capacity (500 kg payload in the van version!), Renault Celtaquatre won the hearts of tradesmen and businesses, and its relatively small size made it perfect for an urban environment, all the more so as the model was economical, pleasant to drive and comfortable!
The sounds of Celtaquatre evoked the inter-war period and the rise of the motor car.
Although it was popular with businesses and tradesmen, Renault Celtaquatre also found its place in the Army. Between 1936 and 1938, 23 Celtaquatres fitted out as medical emergency vehicles were shipped out to the French overseas forces.
In 1934, the rounded silhouette of Renault Celtaquatre made a real impact. Its lines earned it the moniker “Celtaboule”. However, from 1936, its rounded design was smoothed out to improve its aerodynamics. From that point on, Renault Celtaquatre existed in a new economical version known as Celtastandard.
