About Speedo Clockss

Probably the most studied dial on a vehicle’s dashboard is the speedo clock. Citroen Speedo clocks, which are normally driven electro-magnetically, are a dashboard instrument that advise the driver of the velocity at which the vehicle is travelling. This is obviously a vital component which not only enables the driver to maintain a safe driving speed but also ensures that the speed of the vehicle is kept within legal limits.

The way in which most Citroen speedo clocks work is quite straightforward. Basically, they operate through the transfer of information from the wheels of the vehicle to the speedo clock itself. This is achieved by means of the speedometer cable, which makes the connection between the turning wheels and the speedo clock. In simple terms, the faster the wheels turn the faster the cable rotates. This rotation creates an electro-magnetic reaction in a speed cup that is located inside the speedometer. This magnetic reaction is responsible for the creation of force, which pushes the needle of the speedometer. The faster the speedometer cable spins the greater are the magnetic forces that are created, causing more force and more movement of the speedo dial.

Citroen Speedo clocks are an essential component and it is illegal to drive without a working speedometer. If a speedo clock is faulty it should be repaired or replaced immediately.  

Citroen trivia

  • In 2019, the Citroën DS was voted in the UK as the 'coolest car ever', with writers and marketers calling it the Brigitte Bardot of cars. In second place was the E-Type Jag…
  • Between 1925 and 1935, the Eiffel Tower was just a big, pointy billboard with the word 'Citroën' in bright lights from top to bottom. This was the first use of lights to advertise on the tower, and Citroën renewed the adverts every year until they were bought out by Michelin.
  • Thanks to Citroën, the French driver Sebastien Loeb is the single most successful driver in the entire history of the World Rallying Championship. Nine consecutive driver's titles were won by Loeb in the time between 2004 and 2012, driving cars such as the Xsara, the C4, and the DS3.
  • Buying Maserati was definitely a mistake for Citroën. The SM model didn't sell well, and that led to financial difficulties that meant the car company was eventually acquired by Peugeot.
  • If you went into a Citroën showroom in the 20s, there's a good chance that you would have been given a letter that was personally handwritten by Andre Citroën himself, proclaiming the benefits of the car models. This one act of marketing genius is credited with being responsible for thousands of closed sales.
