New High Rider from Citroën
CITROEN has released first details of a striking new concept design that will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
DS HIGH RIDER is the second concept associated with Citroën’s innovative and distinctively-styled DS line.
Unlike traditional 4-seater coupés, with their long, low design, the DS HIGH RIDER is compact and muscular.
Its character is expressed in its unique driving sensations, with a sleek flowing windscreen that soars over the heads of front occupants - hinting at a bright and spacious cabin environment. The apparently continuous glazed area of the side windows connects the A-pillars to the gently sloping roof line of the rear.
Planted firmly on stylish 19” alloy wheels and beautifully in proportion, DS HIGH RIDER’s confident profile is characterised by its high waistline. Its front end is purposeful with gaping air intakes, long incisive headlights and defined ridges along the bonnet.
Just 4.26m long, 1.82m wide & 1.48m high, DS HIGH RIDER com- bines a neat and nimble chassis, for responsive handling, with intelligent design architecture.
DS HIGH RIDER is respectful of the environment with an advanced ‘Full Hybrid’ diesel drivetrain that combines a refined HDi DPFS engine under the bonnet with an electric motor located on the rear axle.
The hybrid platform enables DS HIGH RIDER to combine the fuel efficiency and power of an HDi diesel engine with the ecological benefits of a new generation electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle). Under certain conditions, both engines combine to deliver additional power with additional torque transmitted to the rear wheels.
