Citroen shows off High Rider DS concept

Citroën has released first details of its latest concept design that will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

DS High Rider is the second concept associated with Citroen’s innovative and distinctively styled DS model line, which will make its New Zealand debut in August when the Citroen DS3 arrives.

The concept combines compact dimensions with generous internal volumes, strong performance, and a flash of style.

Unlike traditional 4-seater coupes, with their long, low design, the High Rider is compact and bulky. ¨¨It features a sleek flowing windscreen that soars over the heads of front occupants creating a bright cabin environment. The apparently continuous glazed area of the side windows connects the A-pillars to the sloping roof line of the rear.

Planted on 19″ alloy wheels the concept vehicle’s profile is characterised by a high waistline. The front end looks purposeful with gaping air intakes, long incisive headlights and defined creases on the bonnet.

When it comes to power motivation the High Rider will make use of a ‘Full Hybrid’ diesel drivetrain that combines Citroen’s HDi DPFS engine under the bonnet with an electric motor located on the rear axle. Under certain conditions, both engines combine to deliver additional power with additional torque transmitted to the rear wheels.
