Citroen's odd DS5 executive hatch goes on sale

Today sees Citroen's strange DS5 go on sale - strange because it's an executive car that's also a hatchback. And French. And a diesel-electric hybrid. Will the experiment work? Or will this be another Renault Avantime-style disaster?

If you're looking for an answer to that question, you won't get it here - we dare not predict how well (or not) the DS5 will sell. The attractive models genuine young executive key demographic couple in the picture above seem enthused, which is a good sign.
