To meet French President Emmanuel Macron’s specification, the DS 7 CROSSBACK ÉLYSÉE was lengthened to create a leg room that reaches as much as 54.5 centimetres, effectively becoming a mobile office.
In addition, the rear also features two individual Basalt Black leather work seats, Exclusive Alcantara headlining, wireless chargers, USB ports and an open central document holder.
DS 7 CROSSBACK ÉLYSÉE stands out with blue/red flashing lights at the front, its detachable flagholders, its “RF” badges on the bonnet, front doors and boot as well as its special 20-inch wheels and a shark’s fin antenna for the President’s special telecommunications system.
Since the declaration of the 5th Republic, DS and SM, then DS 5 and DS 7 CROSSBACK have been used by seven presidents. At his inauguration in 2017, Emmanuel Macron went down the Champs Elysées inside DS 7 CROSSBACK PRÉSIDENTIEL.
In this new version, DS 7 CROSSBACK ÉLYSÉE has a 300 horsepower E-TENSE plug-in hybrid power unit with four-wheel drive and Ink Blue paintwork.
