Wild and rebellious, yet refined and sophisticated. Its power is offset by the shapely profile and attractive details. The thoroughbred silhouette is decorated with a unique chrome signature on the side. The roof bars accentuate the impression of height, while hinting at a sense of power and drive, before blending into the bodywork and flow of the profile of the rear wing.
The front of the car is characterised by the three-dimensional relief of the radiator grille, decorated with a DS emblem that is underlined by a shaft of light. The grille then flows into the unique full-LED headlights, made up of three mobile lighting modules, surrounded by scrolling indicator lights at the base and a tuning fork-shaped light signature on the edge. A real jewel that gives the Wild Rubis a bold, hypnotic and unique stare.
The new arrangement of the lights at the rear appears to be part of the raised tailgate. Just like a jewel, the glass of the rear lights is encased in chrome, further enhancing the light signature. The sense of perfection is heightened by the subtle lighting effect on the DS emblem, creating an impression of depth. The foot of the sculptural rear tailgate is highlighted by the chrome finish, incorporating the twin exhaust pipes.
THE VERY ESSENCE OF THE DS LINE
Every detail has been addressed with the utmost care, making the Wild Rubis concept car a worthy heir to the 1955 DS that embodies all the refinement of the DS line in style. All the distinctive traits of the DS line are concentrated in this concept car. The most expressive include the side chrome signature, the multitude of sculptured details in the metal, the front and rear light signature and the finish of the noble materials, such as the guilloche pattern on the hub caps.
HYBRID PLUG-IN TECHNOLOGY
The full-hybrid plug-in technology of the Wild Rubis concept car is perfectly in line with the Brand’s environmental strategy. The drivetrain comprises a 225 hp (1.6-litre THP petrol internal combustion engine. This engine is combined with a 70 hp electric motor positioned on the rear axle, powered by lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged from a domestic socket.
