The Citroen 'D' models, introduced at the October 1955 Paris Auto Show, were produced in France from 1955 to 1975. They were sold in the United States from 1956 to 1974. 800 orders were placed in the first hour and 12,000 orders by the end of the first day.

The name 'DS' in French is pronounced 'day-es' which is the pronunciation for the world Deesse, which in French means Goddess. The 'D' series is commonly called 'The Goddess.'

The DS was an innovative vehicle and was the world's first mass-produced car to be fitted with disc brakes, crash zones, covered headlights, turning headlights, and a true aerodynamic design. The covered headlights and turning headlights were not allowed in the United States.

The DS came with a Citromatic transmission - a 4-speed transmission with an automatic hydraulically activated clutch. There was no clutch pedal; the operator moved the shift lever located between the steering wheel and dash and the clutch operated automatically.

The DS featured an Oleo-Pneumatic suspension system. It was a self-leveling system with an adjustable height. This feature was unique to Citroen but was also licensed by Rolls-Royce and Mercedes for some of their models. The Citroen suspension had no springs or shock absorbers. They had a shaft in the middle of the suspension arms with a piston that goes into a sphere with special mineral oil in the bottom; a special rubber membrane in between and nitrogen gas in the top (nitrogen gas has six times the shock absorption capabilities of steel).

The Oleo-pneumatic suspension, power brakes, power steering, and automatically operated clutch were all powered by the same hydraulic system containing LHM (Liquide Hydraulique Mineral oil).
