Earlier this year, Citroen announced plans to revive the DS badge for a line of premium models. The first car we saw with the new nomenclature was the DS3 concept that was shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March. That MINI-challenger will be joined by a larger DS5, which is likely to get a diesel hybrid version in 2011. The diesel hybrid will be the same HYbrid4 powertrain system that is coming to the Peugeot 3008 crossover next year.
Last week, French automaker PSA-Peugeot-Citroen announced the development of the world's first hybrid diesel powertrain. Called HYbrid4, the propulsion system is earmarked for initial implementation on the Peugeot 3008 crossover. But after that, its sister-company Citroen will use the system in an all-new vehicle: the DS5.
