To compete with Citroën with their front-wheel drive, Renault unveiled the Renault Celta 4 in May 1934.
The Celta 4 with its curves was nicknamed the Celtaboule. When it was released, the Celta was equipped with a 30 hp 1.4 L 4-cylinder engine for an average speed of 110 km/h.

Modifications to its bodywork were made in 1935 to the bonnet with the removal of the three flaps to make way for a chrome bead decoration.
Each model was painted in two tones as standard, and to have a unique body color, it was possible only as an option.

In 1936, the Renault Celta 4 was reworked to lose its curves, to be more aerodynamic, and two other versions appeared: a convertible and a coach.
In 1937, the entire Renault Celtaquatre range received an American-inspired V grille.
In 1938, the coupé model was discontinued and the whole range was fitted with a straight-blade bumper.
1939: production of the Celta 4 ceased to make way for the Juvaquatre.
