Citroen unveils DS High Rider concept

12 February 2010 - Citroën has released first details of a new concept design that will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. DS High Rider is the second concept associated with Citroën's DS line. Unlike traditional 4-seater coupés, with their long, low design, the DS High Rider is compact and muscular.

Its character is expressed by 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 19 inch alloy wheels, 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 and 1.48m high, DS High Rider combines nimble chassis, for responsive handling, with intelligent design architecture that provides occupants with a generous amount of internal space.

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.
