Citroën lifts lid on looming diesel hybrid

Lax on tax

High performance access to file storage

Citroën has stepped its green gears up a level with its first diesel hybrid vehicle, the DS5.

The five-door hatchback was unveiled at the Shanghai motor show today and the first car to incorporate the company's HYbrid4 diesel technology.

This will help keep CO2 emissions down to 99g/km, which means the DS5 qualifies for the lowest rate of road tax.

The vehicle is four-wheel drive too, with batteries that power the front wheels, while the engine drives the rear.

Pricing is unknown but the trade press thinks it will come in at around £30,000.

The Citroën DS5 will hit Europe in early 2012, following its debut at this September's Frankfurt motor show. ®
