2017 SHANGHAI MOTOR SHOW: DS AUTOMOBILES STRENGTHENS ITS SUV RANGE IN CHINA
As the Shanghai International Motor Show opens its doors to the press, DS AUTOMOBILES has chosen this occasion to unveil its new SUV, DS 7 CROSSBACK, for the very first time in Asia. The first model of the second generation of DS cars, it will go on sale in Asia in the next few months, following its European launch.
With DS 7 CROSSBACK, the Brand is strengthening its SUV range in China, a market where it already offers DS 6. With its powerful and sophisticated styling, DS 6 is the company’s bestselling car in China. DS AUTOMOBILES has chosen the Shanghai motor show to unveil its DS 6 SO PARIS. This ultra-refined model, a product of DS’s expert craftsmanship, is being offered as a limited edition. It is notable for its entirely Red Purple Nappa leather interior - including the dashboard -, (a first for DS 6), which contrasts with its Galena Grey exterior.
With its sights resolutely set on the technologies of the future, the DS brand is also presenting E-Tense, DS’s take on the plug-in hybrid, as well as DSV-02, its all-electric single-seater, which races in the FIA Formula E Championship. Also not to be missed is DS VIRTUAL VISION, the virtual reality experience that allows you to configure DS 7 CROSSBACK, discover its different personalisation options and to actually get on board.
Come visit us at the DS stand, Hall 6.1 at the Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Center until 28 April 2017.
DS’s 750 m2 stand invites visitors to plunge into the Brand’s universe of French savoir-faire, complete with a virtual reality experience, advanced technology and a world of refinement. No effort has been spared to spotlight the new developments on show at the 17th Shanghai International Motor Show.
