The Citroën B2 is the second model produced by Citroen. It is therefore the second European car to have been constructed according to modern mass production technologies. It was produced at André Citroen's factory in central Paris from 1921.

The Citroën B2 replaced the CitroenType A in June 1921, although the "Type A" would continue to be listed for sale till December 1921.  The car was manufactured, just five minutes from the Eiffel Tower at the famous Quai de Javel (subsequently renamed Quai André-Citroën), which by 1925 was producing at the rate of 200 cars per day, applying techniques then known as "taylorism" which Citroen had studied personally and in depth during a visit to Dearborn that he had undertaken during the war in order to master the techniques being applied by Henry Ford for the production of the Model T.
