Posted on 10. Oct, 2012 by in News

The new DS5 hybrid vehicle from Citroen has got greener with reduction in emission to 91g/km CO2, which is the best-in-class result. The diesel powered EV went on sale this April in United Kingdom and the automaker has already made developments to the latest vehicle to join its up-market DS lineup.

There are three vehicles available in the DS5 range and all of them have been upgraded with few technical enhancements and latest management software to improve the fuel economy. The key developments include more fuel efficiency and energy recovery when braking and decelerating.

The models are equipped with 17-in Houston alloy wheels that help in reducing C02 emission; the new compact DS5 is available in diesel, petrol, or diesel-electric hybrid versions. The price of the entry-level car is £22,400, while that of the range-topping DSport is £32,200.
