Own up - who bought the DS in April

Post by Richard_C »

SMMT figures for April are out, as anyone would expect they are dire with just 4,321 new car sales which were probably ordered pre-lockdown.

56 Citroens, and ONE DS.

A serious point for existing owners and people like me who buy second hand ("pre-owned") is the future of dealerships and service agents which we sometimes need for service, warranty and parts. Here in East Anglia the Citroen network was shredded about 2 years ago to the extent that I wouldn't buy another one.

DS is one more than Polestar - whats a Polestar I ask, must look it up - sounds heavenly.

Polestar is a Chinese BEV masquerading as Volvo.

Sorry Richard but that figure is not completely correct, "The Sun" stated last week that over 85,000 of these cars were sold in March alone, the best selling car this year!!
