DS confirms all model will be electric or hybrid by 2025

DS Automobiles has confirmed that its next generation of models will feature hybrid or fully electric powertrains.

The first model to be launched will be the DS 7 Crossback E-Tense – due in Autumn 2019 - with a petrol-hybrid motor developing 300PS. It will offer four-wheel drive and a 30-mile driving range in zero emission mode (WLTP drive cycle).

An all-electric DS model will follow, making its debut at the Paris Motor Show in October.

DS CEO, Yves Bonnefont, said: "starting in 2025, each new DS will be launched exclusively with electrified powertrains. Our ambition is very clear: for DS to be among the global leaders in electrified cars in its segment.”
