Citroen DS9 teased ahead of its official debut

Article by Christian A., on March 20, 2012

Citroën’s official Facebook page showed this disguised image that is believed to be the luxury saloon Citroën DS9. Attached to this image is a message: ‘The future of the DS line is already taking shape at Citroën...’. The Citroën DS9 is slated to be officially launched this April at the Beijing Motor Show. Citroën boss Frederic Banzet said during the recently held Geneva motor show that the high-end DS brand will be subjected to “internationalization” this year.

He also talked about plans for the DS3, DS4 and DS5 models to be launched in China, Russia and Brazil. Banzet said the company wants to take advantage of the fact that Citroën’s largest market (even bigger than its home market in France) is China and will be releasing three new China-only DS models. These are a new C-segment saloon, a new SUV and a bigger saloon (which seems to be the one displayed on Facebook).

At launch, they will be China-only; however, the company is open to making them available in the other markets such as Europe. The Metropolis concept, which was seen as the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010, appears to be the inspiration of this saloon. This concept is an executive saloon that may rival the German brands that lead this sector. The DS9 moniker makes a reference to the original DS19.
