Designed to be driven by the full-hybrid, plug-in technology, DS Wild Rubis is packed with technological innovations.

With impressive dimensions – 4.7 m L, 1.95 m W and 1.59 m H – a wheelbase of 2.9 m and planted on 21” wheels, the concept expresses power and strength.

Featuring the new front-end identity inaugurated by the Numéro 9 concept, the face of DS Wild Rubis is characterised by the three-dimensional radiator grille decorated with a DS emblem. The grille flows into unique full-LED headlights, made up of three mobile lighting modules and surrounded by scrolling indicator lights at the base and a tuning fork-shaped light signature on the edge. The new arrangement of the lights at the rear appears to be part of the raised tailgate. The rear tailgate is highlighted by the chrome finish, incorporating the twin exhaust pipes.
