The History of DS Cars
The founder of DS cars was André-Gustave Citroën back in 1919. The name DS comes from the French word Déesse, meaning Goddess. The automotive maker was first launched in 1955 and is now, and has been, owned by Stellantis since 2021.
The DS car came into its own and hit the European market after the reveal at the Paris Auto Show. It is renowned for its vintage style but advanced before its time. As the car was released around a similar time as the world was gearing up for the space race, the French manufacturers created this ultimate futuristic vehicle with the first use of pressurised fluid, hydromantic suspension, and aerodynamic shape. You may remember the DS from its feature in the iconic film Back to the Future Part 2.
Fast forward to 2014, and DS cars emerged as a standalone brand, embodying the spirit of its predecessor while carving its path in the world of luxury cars.
