Price of the DS 5LS sedan will start around 240.000 yuan and ends around 320.000 yuan. The DS 5LS sedan is expected to outsell to slow-selling DS5 hatchback within months, as most Chinese car buyers in this segment of the market still favor sedans.

  1. I like this !
    In your opinion Tycho, this car will be successfull in China ?

    The DS 5LS was unveiled last night at a special event which taked place at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

    • Yes I think it will be successful. The DS brand is already gaining a large fan and customer base, and a China-made sedan will likely be the best-seller, at least until the SUV arrives. There is one big IF however and that is the lack of dealers, there are far too few. the joint venture is working hard to fix that, but it will take at least another year before they can properly cover the big cities.

      • I see. I saw that there are just 3 DS dealerships in Shanghai and in Beijing. I will try to visit one in each city. I hope they will develop it.
