PARIS -- Sales of the DS 9 midsize sedan start in Europe this month, with a choice of two plug-in hybrid powertrains and one gasoline engine
The sedan's price in France ranges from 47,700 euros ($56,800) to 80,000 euros.
The DS 9 is built on an extended-wheelbase version of the PSA Group EMP2 architecture that underpins the Peugeot 508 and other compact and midsize vehicles. The sedan is produced in China and launched in that market earlier this year.
DS, PSA’s premium brand, says it will sell the DS 9 in 40 countries.
It is the third vehicle designed expressly for DS, following the DS 7 Crossback compact SUV, launched in 2018, and the DS 3 Crossback small SUV, which came on the market in 2019. Earlier DS vehicles were adapted from Citroen models.
A DS 4 compact vehicle is expected to be revealed shortly, as the brand promised it would launch a new model every year for six years, starting with the DS 7.
