The Citroën DS was a model of car manufactured by the French automobile company Citroën between 1955 and 1975.
In 2015, Cab B25 — owned by the Luxor Cab Company — was a hover- converted 1972 Citroën DS. However, it is possible that the company operated more Citroën DS taxis.
When the DeLorean — with Emmett Brown, Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker aboard — arrived in 2015 from 1985, appearing in the wrong lane of Skyway C25 and facing oncoming traffic, it almost collided with a hover-converted Citroën DS taxicab which may also have been from the Luxor Cab Company.
After Old Biff recovered the Grays Sports Almanac and learnt that Doc had created a time machine, he got into Cab B25, and followed the DeLorean to Hilldale.
When Marty roamed through the streets of 1985A Hill Valley, he passed a totaled Citroën DS, which was among one of the many wrecked vehicles which littered the streets.

Behind the scenes
- The Citroën DS was marketed from 1955 to 1975, so had such a vehicle appeared during the 1955 sequences in Back to the Future it wouldn't have looked out of place.
- The same Citroën DS used as Cab B25 reappears later in Back to the Future Part II as one of the wrecked vehicles in 1985A.
