Citroen’s future plans includes more DS versions, including a DS Roadster based on Citroen Survolt concept. Today we have details on a new DS model that will compete with model like Audi S3, the Volkswagen Golf R and the Ford Focus ST.
The new model will be called DS4 Racing (or Sport) and is descried as a "hybridized DS4 model." This new model will combine a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine with 200 HP and with a 95 HP electric motor on the rear axle. The result for this all-wheel drive sport model is a total output of 295 HP. This new hybrid system is similar to the PSA Group’s diesel HYbrid4 set-up or perhaps it will de derived from the new front-wheel drive hybrid system PSA Group is developing with BMW.
The new DS4 Racing is expected to make its world debut sometime in 2013, after the standard DS4 will go on sale in 2011.
