Citroën to expand DS range with new models

Citroën to expand DS range with new models

Citroën has been a busy carmaker in recent years, particularly with its new DS range of vehicles. The DS nameplate was dormant for many year but now it covers a lineup of three models the DS3, DS4 and DS5. Citroën isn’t planing on slowing down with its DS development and has some new plans in the pipeline.

Perhaps the most exciting area of development involves Citroën’s DS3 Racing. The easy-to-spot hot hatch, with its turbocharged four-cylinder engine and striking colour scheme, was initially planned as a limited edition of 1,000 vehicles. But it proved a hot-selling hot hatch and demand across Europe meant production was increased to 2,400. Now, reports are suggesting that a new version of the popular hatch could already be in development.

Citroën is also experiencing a strong period of demand in China and is looking at expanding its range with a larger version of the DS5. There are also rumours that a production version of the Metropolis concept (pictured) could be built.

Expect to hear more on Citroën’s DS line of cars in the next few years as they make more of an impact on global markets.
