The Citroën DS4 will be listed on the Chinese car market before the end of this year. It will arrive as an import to be sold alongside the imported DS3. The DS5 which debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show will be made in China by the Chang’an-Peugeot-Citroën (aka Chang’an-PSA) joint venture, production will start late next year. Eventually the DS3 and DS4 will be made in China as well by the same joint venture, when exactly is yet unclear. The joint venture is already responsible for the distribution of all DS-models.

PSA (Peugeot-Citroen) and Chang’an Auto signed a joint venture agreement earlier this month. The joint venture will launch a new brand and introduce Citroen’s DS-line to China. First up could be the Citroen DS4, so far a concept only. For China it will get two more doors so families can buy it. The DS3 is likely to be made in China as well, that one will keep its 3 doors so it can compete directly with BMW’s very succesful Mini.
