Ever since Citroen stopped making the C6 back in 2012, France has been starving for a large, premium saloon that could, at least in some aspects, keep up with various German offerings.

Enter the new DS 9, riding on the PSA Group’s EMP2 V2.3 platform. It’s arguably the most elegant car France has produced in almost a decade, and it’s priced locally from €47,700 ($56,774).

Go for the top spec E-TENSE 4×4 360 model and that can set you back as much as €80,000 ($95,218).

There are a total of three available power units for the time being, starting with a PureTech 225 gasoline variant, followed by two plug-in hybrids in the E-TENSE 225 and E-TENSE 4×4 360. Another, longer-range E-TENSE 250 model will soon complete the lineup.

The flagship DS 9 E-TENSE 4×4 360 uses 110 and 113 PS electric motors, working alongside a 200 PS PureTech gasoline unit for a combined 360 PS (355 HP) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque. The spec also comes with black DS Performance logo brake calipers and 20-inch Munich alloy wheels.

There will only be two trim levels available at launch in the Performance Line + and Rivoli +. The former offers a black Alcantara interior, chrome badges on the front doors, DS Performance Line logos, gloss back grille, perforated full grain leather steering wheel and more. The Rivoli + on the other hand is said to connect quality materials with premium diamond-shape trim.

As for its convenience and active safety technology, the DS 9 comes with Level 2 autonomous driving features, the DS Active Scan Suspension, DS Active LED Vision headlights, a Focal Electra sound system, Proximity Keyless Entry & Start, DS Night Vision, Driver Attention Monitoring, Active Blind Spot Monitoring, Extended Traffic Sign Recognition and Active Safety Brake.

A total of five exterior colors are being offered in Pearl White, Midnight Blue, Pearl Crystal, Artense Grey and Perla Nera Black.

First deliveries are scheduled to commence in September of 2021, so there is some waiting to be done.

Tesla has increased pricing for the Model S and Model X across Europe, though the rates vary based on market. Still, the price bumps are quite significant, especially in markets such as Germany where the entry-level Model S now costs €81,990 ($97,700).

Before the price update, it retailed for €76,990, so that’s a difference of €5,000 ($6,000), which is a lot, regardless of where you’re from. Similar differences now exist in France and the UK, reports Reuters.

To put things into perspective, the Model S is priced from $67,920 in the United States, following Tesla’s recent back-to-back price cuts.

Meanwhile, price changes in other European countries were less extensive, with the Model S costing just €2,000 more in Spain than before. According to Electrek, these price hikes apply to Tesla’s next batch of Model S and Model X vehicles, which won’t be delivered until March of 2021.

This could also be connected to Tesla’s rumored plans for a refresh involving both EVs, which could follow next year’s debut of the Model S Plaid, featuring a new structural battery pack design. The Model S and Model X are also in line to receive an interior refresh next year, but nothing is certain at this point.

We should also note that price bumps within Tesla’s European configurators don’t apply to just the S and X, but also the Model 3, reportedly. However, the latter only costs more by about €500 to €1,000 on average.

Renault has outlined its plan to convert the Flins car factory into a recycling and research center that will target a negative CO2 balance by 2030.

The Flins plant is currently producing the electric Renault Zoe and will continue to do so until 2024, when the facility’s transformation will be completed.

Renault calls it the “RE-FACTORY”, describing it as the first European circular economy site dedicated to mobility. The French carmaker aims to employ more than 3,000 people there by 2030, with the facility revamp to gradually take place between 2021 and 2024.

“RE-FACTORY will enable the Group to respond to the challenges facing mobility and automotive industry players today – and even more so tomorrow. This plant, with an objective of a negative CO2 balance by 2030, is fully in line with the Group’s global strategy by combining circular economy, reduction of emissions, development of skills and the creation of new value-generating activities,” said Renault’s CEO Luca de Meo.

Renault’s Re-Factory will involve a large network of different partners and will be structured around four activity centers: RE-TROFIT, which will be responsible for reconditioning used vehicles and the conversion of ICE-powered vehicles to other less carbon-based energies, RE-ENERGY, which will develop the potential arising from electric batteries, RE-CYCLE, which will integrate the company’s growing share of recycled or reused materials, and RE-START, which will develop industrial know-how and accelerate research and innovation in the circular economy.
