Citroen Numero 9-DS9 Konsept: Dünyaya Sunulan Yeni Lüks Kavramı ile Tanışın!

2017-07-07T10:53:31+00:00

Citroen, son yıllardaki yenilikçi tarzını daha lüks bir yapıda buluşturuyor. Numero 9 adını verdiği yeni konsept aracı, alışılmadık bir tarzın başlangıcı olabilir. Gran Coupe kasa yapısı düşüncesiyle yapılan Citroen Numero’nun, aynı yapıyı taşıyan rakiplerine cevap niteliğinde yapıldığı açıkça belli. C6‘nın daha üst modeli olarak düşünülmüş. Alman firma Mercedes, Gran Coupe AMG ile son noktayı koymak istese de Citroen’in teknoloji tutkusu, Audi dahil birçok firmayı zorlayacak gibi gözüküyor.

Bu araba, otomotiv tarihinin prestij noktalarından biri olabilir. Citroen bu sefer kartlarını büyük açıyor! DS ortaklığında yapılan bu lüks aracın plan çerçevesine baktığımızda bazı noktalarda eşsiz olduğunu göreceksiniz. Yan kuruluşu olan DS’de estetik yapı gelişimine katkıda bulunmuş. Şimdi, Numero 9‘un kusursuz tasarımını inceleyelim…

İşte Lüks Kavramına Farklı Duruş Getiren Numero 9:

Yeni Citroen Numero 9 Concept yapısı daha gergin çizgilerden yapılmış. Ön kısımdan DS ortaklığı belli oluyor.

Citroen yeni modelinin ön görünümüne yenilikçi tasarımlar yüklenmiş. DS tarafından çıkarılması planlanan DS9 modelinin bu şekilde olması bekleniyor.

Far ve ızgara yapısı dar formlarda olup, parçaların bir birinden ayrılmadan birleştirilmesi dikkat çekici olmuş. Far yapısını 3’lü mercek ve “U” Led aydınlatma şeklinde yapıldığını görüyoruz.

Izgara yapısı bolca krom kullanılarak yapılmış. Citroen amblemi şeffaf bir ızgara kapağı altına yerleştirilmiş. Tabi DS’in devrede olması ile amblem değişebilir!

Numero 9’un tamponu büyük ve sade yapıda oluşturulmuş . Tamponun sis farı kısmına da tasarımı tamamlayacak Led aydınlatmalar ilave edilmiş.

Numero 9 profili arkaya doğru sert bir yapıda gidiyor. Alçak tavan yapısı etkileyici. Aracın yerden yüksekliği sadece 1.27 metre dir. Kaputun uzunluğunu da yan kısımdan daha iyi anlayabiliyoruz.

DS’in yan kısımda dokunuşları daha yoğun. Bu geniş coupe’nin kapı altı ve tavan tasarımı,  DS rozeti taşıyor.

Numero 9’a kasa yapısı gereği büyük lastikler verilmiş. Turbin tipi jantlar 21 inç ve duruşu gerçekten harika! Jant tercihin bu şekilde olması, hava akışı ve yakıt tüketimine de katkıda bulunuyor.

Bize göre Citroen, yine farkını ortaya koymuş. Çünkü Fransız firma zirveyi oynayan bir araç işine girdiğini görüyoruz.

Numero 9’un tavan yapısıda bir ilk olabilir. Yüzen cam olarak adlandıralan bu tavan, küçük kısımlar ile birlikte geriye doğru açılma özelliğine sahip.

Arka kısma baktığımızda, yuvarlak hatları ve etkiyi güçlendiren rüzgarlığı dikkat çekiyor.

Numero 9’un dışa doğru uzanan  kanat şekli, stünlar ile birlikte hava akışına yardımcı olması için yapılmış.

Arka farları da büyüklüğüne göre orantılı olarak imal edilmiş. Stop far yapısı sade ama etkileyici! Genel olarak baktığımızda Rolls Royce Sweptail’in görülmemiş duruşundan esintiler hissediyoruz.

Numero 9 için düşünülen motor ünitesi hibrid olarak ve çıkışına yakın tamamı elektrikli olacağı söylendi. PSA’nın gelişiminde olan motor ünitesi, doldurulabilir lityum-iyon piller ile desteklenmiş. Elektrikli motorların 2’si arka aks, 1 tanesi orta kısımda olacak şekilde yerleşimi yapılmış.

Numero 9’a verilen motorlardan toplam elde edilecek güç +300 hp olması bekleniyor.

Citroen Numero 9’da özel olarak yapılan etkileyici vücut renkleri geliştirilmiş. Değişken siyah ve füme dışında, mor da renk skalasına dahil edilmiş.

Tek kelime ile harika bir iş daha çıkartan Citroen, ileriye dönük çalışmalarının en iyi örneğini bizlere gösterdi. İngiliz ve Alman rakiplerinin lüks kavramlar için sunduğu araçlarına karşı gerçekten güçlü bir silah olmuş. Citroen Numero 9‘un alçak yapısı ve uzun boyutları, iş adamlarının tercihlerini Fransız tarafına kaydıracaktır.

İlginizi Çekebilir :

Çünkü projenin amacına baktığımızda kaliteli malzemeler ile lüks bir yaşam sunmak olmuş. İç yaşam alanı biraz gizli tutulsa da tahmin etmek zor değil! Fransız firmanın CXPerience modelinin yenilikçi ve zarif iç tasarımına bakarsak, Numero 9’un kokpit yapısını tahmin etmek zor olmasa gerek. PSA Gruptan gelen haberlere bakılırsa 5 yıllık konsept geçmişine sahip Numero 9 veya DS9’un yakın tarihlerde çıkma olasılığı oldukça yakın. Sizce Citroen-DS böyle bir araba ile rakiplerine fark atabilir mi?

I Am Numéro 9: Citroën’s DS Concept in Detail with Over 120 High-Res Photos

Over the past few weeks, we managed to gather bits and pieces about Citroën’s newest DS concept study and now, we not only have more than 120 high-resolution photos to share with you, but we also have all the details in advance of its world premiere at the Beijing Motor Show on April 24. Previously believed to be named the DS9, the French study is called the Numéro 9 concept, though Citroën makes it clear that it belongs to the DS lineup. Citroën says that the Numéro 9 introduces the more chic and premium DS lineup to Chinese consumers before the company launches its first DS products onto the market later this year. More importantly though, Citroën states that the Numéro 9 refines the brand’s design language and signals the styling cues of the next three DS line models including a C-segment premium sedan (think Audi A3 Sedan), an SUV and a D-segment (mid-size) executive saloon. As you can see, Citroën is all hyped up about its DS line, which currently consists of the DS3 supermini, DS4 compact hatch and the larger DS5, and all for good reason as it has notched up more than 200,000 sales worldwide just two years after launch. Citroën doesn’t say if the Numéro 9 will result in a production model, but the French carmaker’s executives have previously confirmed the brand’s intentions to build a flagship model. The Numéro 9 is a follow up to the impressive 2010 Metropolis concept, which was also shown in China. However, the new DS study sports a shooting brake body, while at 4.93m (194.1-inches) long and 1.94m (76.4-inches) wide, with a 3m (118.1-inches) wheelbase, it’s also more compact in dimensions than the 5.3m long (208.7-inches) Metropolis. Nevertheless, it’s still longer and wider than a Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The French brand claims that it provides plenty of room for rear occupants, adding that the three glass areas in the roof creates “a welcoming, friendly cabin ambience”. Citroën tells us that we should take special note of certain design elements such as the new front-end with the sculpted, 3-dimensional grille surround that flows into the full-LED headlights, as well as the floating roof underlined by chrome trim and the glazed side surfaces flowing into the rear window, as these styling cues will appear on the next DS models. Under the hood, Citroën says that the Numéro 9’s hybrid powertrain can combine a conventional petrol or diesel engine (depending on the market) with an electric motor on the rear axle that develops 70hp and torque of 200Nm, and which has the added benefit of offering four-wheel drive. The electric motor is powered by lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged in three and-a-half hours from a normal domestic socket providing a range of 50km (around 31miles) in all-electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mode. The model that will go on display at the Beijing Motor Show is fitted with a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine (shared with the BMW Group’s Mini brand) developing 225hp (165kW) and 275Nm of torque. Together, the combustion engine and electric motor can produce up to 295hp allowing for a 0 to 100km/h (62mph) sprint time of just 5.4 seconds and a top speed of 244km/h (152mph). According to Citroën, if the driver makes use of the car’s pure electric mode, the Numéro 9 returns up to 166mpg UK (1.7lt/100km or 138mpg US) over a combined cycle. Needless to say, the Numéro 9 is fitted with a traditional hydraulic active suspension.

2012 Citroen Numero 9 Concept

Citroen Numero 9

Marketed alongside Citroën’s main range, the DS line explores new automotive territory. Based on more radical choices, it opens new perspectives in premium vehicle design. Inspired by ninety years of history and automotive excellence, the DS line illustrates the best of Citroën expertise in terms of creativity and technology. Two years after its launch, the DS line – comprising the Citroën DS3, DS4 and DS5 – has already notched up more than 200,000 sales.

Pursuing its career, the DS will be launched this year in China. To mark the event, Citroën has designed a new concept car, Numéro 9, to be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show. This concept heralds the future of the DS line and signals the styling cues of the next three models in the line: a C-segment premium sedan, an SUV and a D-segment executive saloon.

Concept car Numéro 9 sublimates the DNA of models in the DS line. It expresses radical choices in design with immediately recognisable styling that is both inspired and emotional. Sophistication is allied with a high-quality finish for original driving sensations and features that are truly useful every day. Its charismatic body styling revisits the shooting brake, while the new front end is designed for plug-in full-hybrid technology. This concept car boasts remarkable levels of performance (50 km range, 295 bhp, boost function, 39 g/km of CO2). High standards, bold design, creativity and the best of technology.

A FRESH TAKE ON FRENCH-STYLE LUXURY
Bold design

Following on from the Citroën DS3, DS4 and DS5, concept car Numéro 9 takes a fresh look at the DS line. It is a new take on a body style with recognised prestige in automotive history: the shooting brake.

Subtly combining the proportions of a coupé with those of an estate, Numéro 9 hints at exceptional driving sensations, with its taut lines, long bonnet and ultra-low stance (1.27 m tall) on its 21-inch wheels. But it also promises unique onboard comfort, with its generous proportions and the three light shafts in the roof, creating a unique, friendly ambience for all passengers.

Numéro 9 is 4.9 m long and 1.94 m wide with a 3 m wheelbase. This has the advantage of freeing up leg room for passengers in the rear. Its roomy looks – an invitation to get behind the wheel – reflect the real requirements expressed by buyers in the executive segment for function and versatility.

Inspired by shooting brake design, Numéro 9 is a new executive take on D-segment design, alongside the more conventional saloons. A charismatic car with real character and immediately recognisable styling, it is continuing the story of the DS line.

The start of a new chapter

Great care went into every detail of concept car Numéro 9, which is a stylish embodiment of the heritage and sophistication of the DS line. Designed in Paris, the capital of fashion in its most superb and universal form, Numéro 9 opens a new chapter in the styling of the DS.

Numéro 9 sublimates the design cues cultivated by the DS line and introduces the new front-end identity of future models in the DS line, along with an original light signature. The new front end features a grille in 3D relief, flowing into the full-LED headlights, which end in daytime-running lights. The overall effect gives Numéro 9 a strong, hypnotic and unique gaze.

A concentrate of DS qualities

Combining the genes of a coupé and shooting brake, Numéro 9 has elegant, thoroughbred looks, with solid, sculpted proportions revealing subtle lines of tension. In this way, Numéro 9 cultivates its status through its distinctive and sophisticated character.

The concept car condenses the distinctive forms of the DS line. The most expressive features include the floating roof, underlined by a chrome trim with a discreet DS marking, and the glazed side surfaces flowing into the rear window.

Last, through its body colours and materials, Numéro 9 displays both mystery and sophistication. Its deep black bodywork with subtle hints of violet, baptised ‘Whisper”, is a perfect match for the warmer shade of the ‘californian” chrome finish.

Citroen Numero 9 Concept

A LEGACY OF CREATIVE HIGH-PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGIES

The technologies used by concept car Numéro 9 combine comfort, safety and respect for the environment, while also delivering subtle but strong driving sensations for all those on board. Creative technologies that perfectly illustrate the Marque’s expertise.

Inspired design

Every detail of Numéro 9 was designed to contribute to its efficiency (CdA = 0.61):

  • a rear spoiler reinforcing the fastback effect;
  • windscreen pillars contributing to the air flow around the cabin;
  • and ‘turbine’ wheels whose integrated fins increase the air flow around the wheel arches, thus reducing both turbulence and fuel consumption.
Plug-in hybrid technology: eco-awareness and driving sensations

With its full-hybrid plug-in technology, concept car Numéro 9 is a perfect fit with Citroën’s environmental policies.

The plug-in hybrid drive train has an electric motor on the rear axle. This simple and innovative configuration is perfectly adapted to the character of Numéro 9: it optimises handling and traction, while limiting fuel consumption and emissions.

Concept car Numéro 9 thus combines a combustion engine, petrol or diesel depending on the market, with an electric motor on the rear axle developing power of 70 bhp and torque of 200 Nm. This electric motor runs on lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged in just 3 ½ hours from a normal domestic socket. The model on display at the Beijing Motor Show is fitted with a 1.6 THP petrol engine developing 225 bhp (165 kW) for torque of 275 Nm.

With its plug-in hybrid technology, Numéro 9 respects the environment. This is particularly true in the city, where the car has a range of 50 km in all-electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mode, and on roads demanding successive acceleration and deceleration, where the hybrid drivetrain limits consumption by using both sources of energy. On the motorway, the combustion engine takes over to deliver real performance.

Numéro 9 features new-generation micro-hybrid technology designed to switch the combustion engine to standby whenever it is not required.

No compromises have been made on driving comfort and sensations. Quite the opposite. When the driver needs speed and torque, a “boost” function links the power of the combustion engine and electric motor to enable Numéro 9 to attain high levels of performance (295 bhp), without impacting fuel consumption (1.7 l /100 km and 39 g/km de CO2). The car takes 5.4 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kph and 25.3 seconds to travel 1,000 m from a standing start.

In cases where more power is required, or when grip is lacking, the car switches to four-wheel drive mode, with the electric motor driving the rear wheels, and the combustion engine the front wheels. In particularly difficult driving conditions, driving up a sloping, snow-covered road, for example, the driver can select forced 4WD mode. The four-wheel drive system and hydraulic active suspension deliver increased traction while making full use of the potential of Numéro 9 in complete safety.

Looking beyond on-road performance and environmental benefits, this full-hybrid plug-in technology offers a third non-negligible advantage: the cabin can be prepared before the car is used. For example, it can be preheated to ensure the comfort of all the occupants as soon as they climb on board.

Description

Citroen Numero 9 Concept

A new take on the shooting brake body style, Citroën Numéro 9 Concept has elegant, thoroughbred looks enhanced with further radical design elements. Solid, sculpted proportions and subtle lines convey a distinctive and sophisticated character. The sophistication is allied with a high-quality finish for a truly original driving sensation and features that are practical and versatile in everyday use.

The concept is designed with plug-in full-hybrid technology; an ultra-efficient system that boasts remarkable levels of performance - 166mpg fuel economy, 50km range in ZEV mode, 295hp, a 'boost' function and 39g/km of CO2.

Designed in Paris, Citroën Numéro 9 opens a new chapter in the styling of the DS line.

A FRESH TAKE ON FRENCH-STYLE LUXURY

Following on from DS3, DS4 and DS5, Citroën Numéro 9 Concept takes a fresh look at the DS line with a new take on the prestigious shooting brake design.

Subtly combining the proportions of a coupé with those of an estate, Citroën Numéro 9 hints at exceptional driving sensations, with its taut lines, long bonnet and ultra-low stance (1.27m tall) on 21-inch wheels. It also promises unique onboard comfort with its generous proportions (4.93m long and 1.94m wide, with a 3m wheelbase) providing plenty of room for rear occupants. The three glass areas in the roof also create a welcoming, friendly cabin ambience.

Citroën Numéro 9 Concept evolves the design cues of the current DS line, introducing the new front-end identity of future models, along with an original light signature. The grille is sculpted in 3 dimensions and flows into the full-LED headlights, which end in daytime-running lights. Condensing the distinctive forms of the DS line, the concept also features a floating roof, underlined by chrome trim with discreet DS markings, and glazed side surfaces flowing into the rear window.

A sophisticated use of body colours and materials includes deep black bodywork with subtle hints of violet. The finish, named 'Whisper', is a perfect match for the warmer shade of the 'Californian' chrome finish.

The 'Créative Technologie' used by Citroën Numéro 9 combines comfort, safety and respect for the environment, while also delivering enjoyable driving sensations for all occupants.

Every detail was designed to contribute to Citroën Numéro 9's aerodynamic efficiency (CdA = 0.61) including:

  • a rear spoiler, which reinforces the fastback effect
  • windscreen pillars that contribute to efficient air flow around the car
  • 'Turbine' wheels with integrated fins to increase the air flow around the wheel arches, reducing both turbulence and fuel consumption

With its plug-in full-hybrid technology, concept car Numéro 9 is also a perfect fit with Citroën's environmental commitments.

The advanced drivetrain combines a conventional petrol or diesel engine (depending on the market) with an electric motor on the rear axle that develops 70hp and torque of 200Nm. The electric motor is powered by lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged in just 3½ hours from a normal domestic socket. The model on display at the Beijing Motor Show is fitted with a 1.6 THP petrol engine developing 225hp (165kW) and 275Nm of torque.

With its plug-in hybrid technology, Citroën Numéro 9 Concept respects the environment. It has a range of 50km (around 31miles) in all-electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mode and, on roads demanding successive acceleration and deceleration, the hybrid drivetrain limits consumption by using both sources of energy. On the motorway, the combustion engine takes over to deliver real performance.

Numéro 9 features new-generation micro-hybrid technology designed to switch the combustion engine to stand-by whenever it is not required.

When the driver requires speed and torque, a 'boost' function combines the power of the combustion engine and electric motor to enable high levels of performance (up to 295hp). Numéro 9 takes just 5.4 seconds to go from 0 to 62mph and 25.3 seconds to travel 1,000m from a standing start.

When grip is lacking, the car switches to four-wheel drive mode with the electric motor driving the rear wheels and the combustion engine powering the front wheels. In particularly difficult driving conditions, such as driving up a sloping, snow-covered road, the driver can manually select 4WD mode. The four-wheel drive system and hydraulic active suspension then deliver increased traction, making full use of the potential of Citroën Numéro 9 in complete safety.

Looking beyond on-road performance and environmental benefits, the full-hybrid plug-in technology offers a third advantage: the cabin can be prepared before the car is used. For example, it can be pre-heated to ensure the comfort of all the occupants as soon as they climb onboard.

With its full-hybrid plug-in technology, concept car Numéro 9 is a perfect fit with Citroën’s environmental policies.

The plug-in hybrid drive train has an electric motor on the rear axle. This simple and innovative configuration is perfectly adapted to the character of Numéro 9: it optimises handling and traction, while limiting fuel consumption and emissions.

Concept car Numéro 9 thus combines a combustion engine, petrol or diesel depending on the market, with an electric motor on the rear axle developing power of 70 bhp and torque of 200 Nm. This electric motor runs on lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged in just 3 ½ hours from a normal domestic socket. The model on display at the Beijing Motor Show is fitted with a 1.6 THP petrol engine developing 225 bhp (165 kW) for torque of 275 Nm.

With its plug-in hybrid technology, Numéro 9 respects the environment. This is particularly true in the city, where the car has a range of 50 km in all-electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mode, and on roads demanding successive acceleration and deceleration, where the hybrid drivetrain limits consumption by using both sources of energy. On the motorway, the combustion engine takes over to deliver real performance.

Numéro 9 features new-generation micro-hybrid technology designed to switch the combustion engine to standby whenever it is not required.

No compromises have been made on driving comfort and sensations. Quite the opposite. When the driver needs speed and torque, a “boost” function links the power of the combustion engine and electric motor to enable Numéro 9 to attain high levels of performance (295 bhp), without impacting fuel consumption (1.7 l /100 km and 39 g/km de CO2). The car takes 5.4 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kph and 25.3 seconds to travel 1,000 m from a standing start.

In cases where more power is required, or when grip is lacking, the car switches to four-wheel drive mode, with the electric motor driving the rear wheels, and the combustion engine the front wheels. In particularly difficult driving conditions, driving up a sloping, snow-covered road, for example, the driver can select forced 4WD mode. The four-wheel drive system and hydraulic active suspension deliver increased traction while making full use of the potential of Numéro 9 in complete safety.

Looking beyond on-road performance and environmental benefits, this full-hybrid plug-in technology offers a third non-negligible advantage: the cabin can be prepared before the car is used. For example, it can be preheated to ensure the comfort of all the occupants as soon as they climb on board.

2012 Citroen Numero 9 Concept Pictures, News, Research, Pricing, msrp, invoice

A new take on the shooting brake body style, Citroën Numéro 9 Concept has elegant, thoroughbred looks enhanced wîth further radical design elements. Solid, sculpted proportions and subtle lines convey a distinctive and sophisticated character. The sophistication is allied wîth a high-quality finish for a truly original driving sensation and features that are practical and versatile in everyday use.

The concept is designed wîth plug-in full-hybrid technology; an ultra-efficient system that boasts remarkable levels of performance - 166mpg fuel economy, 50km range in ZEV mode, 295hp, a 'boost' function and 39g/km of CO2.

Designed in Paris, Citroën Numéro 9 opens a new chapter in the styling of the DS line.

A FRESH TAKE ON FRENCH-STYLE LÚXÚRYFollowing on from DS3, DS4 and DS5, Citroën Numéro 9 Concept takes a fresh look at the DS line wîth a new take on the prestigious shooting brake design.

Subtly combining the proportions of a coupé wîth those of an estate, Citroën Numéro 9 hints at exceptional driving sensations, wîth its taut lines, long bonnet and ultra-low stance (1.27m tall) on 21-inch wheels. It also promises unique onboard comfort wîth its generous proportions (4.93m long and 1.94m wide, wîth a 3m wheelbase) providing plenty of room for rear occupants. The three glass areas in the roof also create a welcoming, friendly cabin ambience.

Citroën Numéro 9 Concept evolves the design cues of the current DS line, introducing the new front-end identity of future models, along wîth an original light signature. The grille is sculpted in 3 dimensions and flows into the full-LED headlights, which end in daytime-running lights. Condensing the distinctive forms of the DS line, the concept also features a floating roof, underlined by chrome trim wîth discreet DS markings, and glazed side surfaces flowing into the rear window.

A sophisticated use of body colours and materials includes deep black bodywork wîth subtle hints of violet. The finish, named 'Whisper', is a perfect match for the warmer shade of the 'Californian' chrome finish.

The 'Créative Technologie' used by Citroën Numéro 9 combines comfort, safety and respect for the environment, while also delivering enjoyable driving sensations for all occupants.

Every detail was designed to contribute to Citroën Numéro 9's aerodynamic efficiency (CdA = 0.61) including:•a rear spoiler, which reinforces the fastback effect•windscreen pillars that contribute to efficient air flow around the car•'Turbine' wheels wîth integrated fins to increase the air flow around the wheel arches, reducing both turbulence and fuel consumption

With its plug-in full-hybrid technology, concept car Numéro 9 is also a perfect fit wîth Citroën's environmental commitments.

The advanced drivetrain combines a conventional petrol or diesel engine (depending on the market) wîth an electric motor on the rear axle that develops 70hp and torque of 200Nm. The electric motor is powered by lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged in just 3½ hours from a normal domestic socket. The model on display at the Beijing Motor Show is fitted wîth a 1.6 THP petrol engine developing 225hp (165kW) and 275Nm of torque.

With its plug-in hybrid technology, Citroën Numéro 9 Concept respects the environment. It has a range of 50km (around 31miles) in all-electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mode and, on roads demanding successive acceleration and deceleration, the hybrid drivetrain limits consumption by using both sources of energy. On the motorway, the combustion engine takes over to deliver real performance.

Numéro 9 features new-generation micro-hybrid technology designed to switch the combustion engine to stand-by whenever it is not required.

When the driver requires speed and torque, a 'boost' function combines the power of the combustion engine and electric motor to enable high levels of performance (up to 295hp). Numéro 9 takes just 5.4 seconds to go from 0 to 62mph and 25.3 seconds to travel 1,000m from a standing start.

When grip is lacking, the car switches to four-wheel drive mode wîth the electric motor driving the rear wheels and the combustion engine powering the front wheels. In particularly difficult driving conditions, such as driving up a sloping, snow-covered road, the driver can manually select 4WD mode. The four-wheel drive system and hydraulic active suspension then deliver increased traction, making full use of the potential of Citroën Numéro 9 in complete safety.

Looking beyond on-road performance and environmental benefits, the full-hybrid plug-in technology offers a third advantage: the cabin can be prepared before the car is used. For example, it can be pre-heated to ensure the comfort of all the occupants as soon as they climb onboard.
