Dongfeng Motors has released the first official images of the production version of the Dongfeng Number One sedan that will debut next week on the Shanghai Auto Show, followed by a launch on the Chinese car market near the end of the year. The Number 1 debuted as a concept on last year’s Beijing Auto Show.
It is based on the new PSA EMP2 platform that will also spawn a China-only Citroen C6 and Citroen DS9, the C6 is expected in 2016 and the DS9 in 2017. Dongfeng and PSA have the long-running Dongfeng-PSA joint venture that makes various Citroen and Peugeot branded cars for the Chinese market. Dongfeng Motor is furthermore one of the largest shareholders in PSA.
The Dongfeng Number 1 will be powered by PSA-sourced 1.8 turbo and 2.0 four-cylinder petrol engines.
Attractive design without too many distracting lines, rear end especially clean.
