Furthermore, presenting the first official photos of the Citroen DS9 production.
Building on the brand’s social networks to bypass travel to the centers in which the products are models of the D-Segment executive sedan, has unveiled the brand through this channel for the new Citroen Numero 9 Concept or DS9 as continues to be named the prototype.
Citroen Numero 9 Concept new DS range
A design that lets us take a look at a coupe and sedan generously sized rencarnando the spirit of the Citroen Metropolis, counting under his body with a plug-in full-hybrid, as we announced the prototype.
Citroen Numero 9 Concept presented at the Beijing Motor Show that begins later this month and unquestionably the Citroen Numero 9 strokes inherited from this model like a concept sedan and sporty large and representative and now, along with the first official images and also the first info, only hope to reach the manufacturing model to finally know how the mechanics will DS9.
Citroen has confirmed to the DS9 an assembly of engine 1.6 THP petrol using an output of 225 hp and 270 Nm of torque that would block accompanied by a power capable of developing 70 hp and like in other versions from the manufacturer, petrol engine will take care of the front axle and rear electrical.
During the Citroen Numero the mechanical forms a V6 engine combustion accompanied by a block electrical. This combination left us as a result of the considerable figure of 460 hp and 430 Nm torque, all mated to a shift dual-clutch 7-speed while to the cycle we would find a fresh generation Hydractive suspension.
Both engines allow the DS9, moving at low speeds and above limited distances together with the electrical motor while the time to ask for higher performance or maintain highway cruising speed 1.6 THP would take action, perhaps with a performance similar to what and provides the brand with the Hybrid4 .
It provides average fuel consumption 1.7 l/100 km , with emissions of CO2 of 39 g / km. It really is capable of reaching 100 km / h in 5.4 seconds while it’s a top speed of 244 km / h.
We can not forget about the possible counterpart at Peugeot, the Peugeot 608 that would derived from the Peugeot prototype HX1 we fulfilled with the Frankfurt Motor Show. A concept on par with DS9 and has under his body with a combustion engine 2.2 HDi with an output of 204 horses, using care to move the front, and with an electrical motor, capable plug-in , of 95 horses in charge of rear axle, so we should also imagine this engine because the core for that future DS9.
Thus we find three engine concepts present in three of the group PSA, the three hybrid but different concepts. On just one hand the V6, perhaps less likely, around the other the combination presented with the Peugeot diesel HX1 and finally the 1.6 THP of 225 horses. We’ll have to wait for the arrival from the production model, however, if some thing would seem to be quite this is the hybridization.
