DS 4 Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: the best tribute to the French writer

Follow the wave of special editions at Stellantis with a very striking celebration. It is 80 years since Antoine de Saint-Exupéry disappeared in the middle of a reconnaissance flight. The French writer went down in history for his works and endures in popular memory thanks to “The Little Prince.” However, now they are focusing on another book, on “Southern Mail” to create a very special series of vehicles. They receive the name of DS 4 Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and they have an unprecedented configuration and details taken from the novel.

Compared to a “normal” DS 4, it has some exclusive details and finishes. On the outside it is dressed in the Night Flight tone and has 19-inch wheels, a tribute to the work “Night Flight”. Inside appears a nappa leather upholstery Creolewith double stitching in the shades Creole and Terre de Cassel. It is a tribute to the airplanes of the early 20th century that Antoine de Saint-Exupéry loved so much. “The Little Prince” is represented on the dashboard and the phrase “the stars measure true distances” from “Correo del Sur” appears.

The ideal mechanic for this edition had to be the Hybrid 136, which already represents almost a third of the model's sales. It combines the PureTech 1.2 three-cylinder gasoline engine with a small electric block that is integrated into the e-DCS6 six-speed dual-clutch transmission. With their 136 HP and 230 Nm of torque, It stands out for its level of efficiency, which is achieved thanks to the additional 0.9 kWh capacity battery. In fact, with electricity you can travel up to 50% of the distances in urban environments.

That causes a exemplary savings in terms of consumption and emissions. It uses 1.2 liters less fuel than the non-electrified PureTech and has CO2 emissions of 112 g/km. The DS 4 Antoine de Saint-Exupéry will go into production in July, while it will arrive at dealerships between August and September. It is already accepting orders and its price is 46,450 euros with the discount for purchasing it online.
