Marketed in parallel alongside CitroŽn’s main range, the distinctive DS line explores new automotive territory. Based on more radical choices, it opens new perspectives in premium vehicle design and illustrates the best of CitroŽn’s expertise in creativity and technology. Just two years after its launch, the DS line - comprising of CitroŽn DS3, DS4 and DS5 - has already notched up more than 200,000 sales worldwide, with 25,000 in the UK alone.

The DS line will be launched in China this year and, to mark the event, CitroŽn has designed a new concept car, Numťro 9, which will be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show. The concept signals the styling cues of the next three DS line models: a C-segment premium sedan, an SUV and a D-segment executive saloon.

A new take on the shooting brake body style, Numťro 9 has elegant, thoroughbred looks enhanced with further radical design elements. Solid, sculpted proportions and subtle lines convey a distinctive and sophisticated character. The sophistication is allied with a high-quality finish for a truly original driving sensation and features that are practical and versatile in everyday use.

The concept is designed with plug-in full-hybrid technology; an ultra-efficient system that boasts remarkable levels of performance - 166mpg fuel economy, 50km range in ZEV mode, 295hp, a ‘boost’ function and 39g/km of CO2.

Designed in Paris, Numťro 9 opens a new chapter in the styling of the DS line.
