2012 Citroen DS9
Citroen’s current DS line-up includes: DS3, DS4 and DS5, but today the company has unveiled the first teaser image of a new DS model - rumored to be called DS9. Official debut will be made in April at the Beijing motor show and comes as an attempt from Citroen to internationalize its high-end DS brand.
The new DS9 high-end sedan has been inspired by the Metropolis concept unveiled in 2010 at the World Expo in Shanghai. Its production version will be offered as an alternative to the German models that are already dominating the sector.
Citroen’s official teaser on Facebook is offering no other details on the upcoming DS9, except that: "The future of the DS line is already taking shape at Citroen..."
But we can confirm that while the DS9 will be initially offered on the Chinese market, it will also be offered on markets like Europe, as Citroën boss Frederic Banzet has explained: "They could end up elsewhere as we have a worldwide ambition with DS."
