At last, Peugeot and Citroen have a shot at success in Australia

À propos du temps! That’s French for ‘about time!’, in reference to the fact that Sime Darby is no longer the Australian distributor for Peugeot, Citroen and DS. The news that Groupe PSA, the company that runs the three French brands, has moved on to a new local distributor – Inchcape, the same guys who have transformed Subaru from an odd-ball outsider to a properly appealing 'household name' car brand – is excellent for all parties...

PSA Peugeot Citroen shifts Australian distribution to Subaru operator Inchcape - UPDATE

French automotive giant Groupe PSA - the company that oversees the Peugeot, Citroen and DS brands - has signed a new distribution agreement with Inchcape in Australia. Inchcape is the company that takes care of brands such as Subaru locally, so the move - Groupe PSA would undoubtedly hope - will see the French car brands see increased sales in a market where it currently struggles for relevance...

2018 DS 7 Cross spied testing

A heavily-disguised prototype believed to be the new DS 7 Cross SUV has been spied this week during cold weather testing. The swathes of black-and-white camouflage don't give much away in terms of the vehicle's design, but we can make out the general proportions, raised ride height and chunky bumpers common to SUVs...

DS E-Tense trademarked: Electric sports car edges closer to production - report

The all-electric DS E-Tense sports car could be one step closer to production, after parent company PSA Groupe (formerly PSA Peugeot Citroen) filed an application to trademark its name this week. Britain's Autocar reports that PSA's luxury arm filed the application this week, in preparation for its halo model to arrive around the turn of the decade - likely between 2018 and 2021...

Citroen’s luxury arm DS has released a limited-run of the new DS 4 Crossback in Australia, making it the French brand’s first SUV model locally.

DS brand set to stay as part of Citroen in Australia for some time

The global move to separate French premium brand DS from its Citroen roots won’t be taken up in Australia for quite some time, it seems. The DS brand was officially peeled away from Citroen at the 2015 Geneva motor show almost exactly a year ago, and while the newly-branded DS 5 luxury hatch (ie: not the Citroen DS5) has been launched here, it’s still being sold through Citroen dealers...

Citroen set for big growth in 2016 and beyond

When a brand sells just over 1100 vehicles in 12 months, it’s fair to assume that growth is what’s required. And Citroen’s Australian arm is looking for exactly that. Citroen – which is imported by local distributor Sime Darby alongside fellow PSA makes Peugeot and DS – suffered a sales drop of about 15 per cent last year...

“516Nm and silence, 402hp and zero emissions.” That’s the nutshell summary that Citroen’s luxury marque DS offers for its E-Tense concept, speaking to both its power and the ultra-green drive system that provides it.

DS E-Tense coupe concept previewed ahead of Geneva motor show

Citroen luxury offshoot DS has handed down a teaser image of a new coupe concept it will reveal in Geneva next week, dubbed DS E-Tense. Although clearly a play on the word intense, the concept’s name is likely also a hint at an all-electric or electric-assisted powertrain - a design that would make this the DS brand’s first EV, and perhaps Citroen’s most thrilling since the Survolt concept in 2010...
