In 2012, the DS brand officially entered China, followed by the launch of DS5, DS5LS, new DS5, DS6, DS4S, DS7, DS9 and other models. Although a lot of models have been launched, sales have been dismal.

According to relevant data, sales of the DS brand in China declined year by year from 2015 to 2020, with sales of the DS brand falling from 21000 in 2015 to 16000 in 2016 and halving to 5847 in 2017.

Against the backdrop of sluggish sales, in December 2019, Changan PSA was sold off by PSA Group and Changan Automobile Group, which respectively transferred their 50% stake in the joint venture Peugeot Citroen to Shenzhen Qianhai Ruizhi Investment Co., Ltd., which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shenzhen Baoneng, that is, Changan Peugeot Citroen changed from a joint venture into a wholly owned company by Baoneng.

In terms of product power, DS 9 is not inferior to the same level of BBA products, and even has obvious advantages in materials and design. However, due to the influence of DS brand can not support its price of 300000 yuan, the sales of DS 9 in China are not as expected.
