It seems the Citroen DSX concept, which we told you about in February, has undergone a name change – the DS5-based study is now called the Citroen DS Wild Rubis concept, and its maker has duly released this teaser video before the wraps are officially cast aside in Shanghai next week.

While we’re not sure exactly what a Rubis is, we do not doubt that it’s going to be Wild. Citroen has already shown us how far away from convention it can fly with its new C4 Picasso – and that’s a production car.

The clip doesn’t show much, save for a prominent DS grille badge (a first for a DS model?) and claw-shaped headlamps, but expect more juicy details to trickle in soon, as Auto Shanghai is just around the corner!

The concept hints at a future premium crossover to rival the likes of the Range Rover Evoque and Audi Q5. The production car should hit China early next year before being introduced in Europe in late-2014.

It could be 4.7 metres long and could come with petrol, diesel and hybrid powertrains. Apparently only hybrid versions will have AWD available, and that they’re likely to be in the same vein as the diesel-electric DS5 HYbrid4.

Europe will get a diesel-hybrid version that will see PSA’s HDi 163 unit and an electric motor working together for a combined output of 200 hp, just like in the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4, while China should get a 1.6 litre THP with 240 hp. The starting price in Europe is estimated at around €39k (RM165k).
