Continually striving to be at the forefront of meeting driver demands and introducing the latest innovative technologies and services, CitroŽn’s Paris show stand will:

  • Reveal CitroŽn’s future World Rally Championship competitor - DS3 WRC - which is set to start its Championship career in 2011.
  • Focus on the ‘essentials’ of automotive design and a lighter approach to life with the CitroŽn Lacoste concept - an expert blend of the worlds of motoring, fashion and sport.
  • Highlight the smart styling and equipment upgrades on the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso ranges.
  • Demonstrate a full-electric solution with the zero fuel consumption, zero CO2 emission and zero engine noise C-ZERO city car.
  • Explore future possibilities in motorsport with the striking, all-electric, 300hp Survolt racing car concept.
  • Introduce the Company’s latest technology and services, including e-HDi with Stop & Start, CitroŽn’s new e-Touch Emergency & Assistance System and CitroŽn Facility.

Thanks to the application of the latest ‘Crťative Technologie’, CitroŽn’s new eTouch Emergency & Assistance System has been awarded the prestigious Euro NCAP Advanced accolade at the Paris Motor Show. The Euro NCAP Advanced Reward recognises CitroŽn’s drive to improve safety and security through the application of this new technology.

The CitroŽn eTouch Emergency & Assistance system will be available in the UK on New C4, C5 and DS3 models, as well as C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso.

The innovative eTouch system features an automatic SOS emergency call function in the event of an accident. Drivers also have the ability to manually call for assistance and roadside recovery by pressing a separate ‘Double Chevron’ button. With its integrated GPS and SIM card, the innovative CitroŽn eTouch system sends the exact location of the stranded vehicle to a central call centre.

The multi-function eTouch System also delivers a range of useful monitoring services for owners. The system allows drivers to consult information online in their ‘MyCITROňN’ personal space, which enables them to monitor their vehicle’s maintenance requirements and to receive advice on improving their fuel economy.

These services are free and available 24-7.
