MEET NEW BRAND DS
DS Automobiles is the exciting new car brand conceived in Paris to make motoring better.

DEFER YOUR PAYMENTS - 4.9% APR REPRESENTATIVE
We understand that despite the current circumstances, you may still need to purchase a new vehicle. At DS Automobiles, we’ve created a 3 month deferred payment scheme to support your purchase. When purchasing a car from stock, via Personal Contract Purchase, you do not have to pay anything for the first 3 months.
This is one way to offer greater peace of mind at a time when you may have other financial commitments on your mind and means you can enjoy the benefits and comfort of a new vehicle, without making a payment for 3 months, 4.9% APR REPRESENTATIVE**
** 3 Month Deferred Scheme Ts&Cs Apply. Personal Contract Purchase. Monthly payments deferred 3 months from commencement date of finance agreement. £1,000 deposit contribution applies to eligible stock only vehicles purchased between 1/7/20 – 30/9/20 and registered by 30/9/20. 4.9% APR Representative. 18+.

There are three options available at the end of the PCP agreement: 1) You can hand the car back with nothing more to pay (subject to mileage and condition), 2) Pay the optional ﬁnal payment and keep the car, 3) Part exchange and use any equity towards a new vehicle.
PAYMENT WAIVER - 4.9% APR REPRESENTATIVE
If you are a private retail customer with a Personal Contract Purchase, Conditional Sale or Personal Finance Lease contract, Payment Waiver is included as standard within your contract. This allows our customers to waive up to six monthly instalments in the event of involuntary redundancy.
We know unemployment can cause many concerns for people when considering a financial commitment. Our Payment Waiver will cover you if you are made redundant through no fault of your own, waiving up to six of your regular monthly instalments, which you will never have to repay, we will pay them for you. However, there are certain conditions that you will need to meet in order to be eligible.
Should you still be unemployed after we have waived six of your regular monthly instalments, you will be given the option to hand back your vehicle and walk away from your agreement without any further financial liability, on the basis that your account is not in arrears. You can also pay off any outstanding arrears and still be entitled to walk away. Excess mileage and/or damage charges may apply.
NEW CAR WARRANTY DEFERRAL
In the current circumstances, you may be taking your new DS on the road less than usual. We acknowledge this, and so for all new DS’ delivered during the COVID-19 lockdown period, where no extended warranty contract has been obtained, the Contractual Warranty start date will be deferred to reflect the end of the lockdown period ***. This is to ensure no aspect of the Warranty period is being diminished for you as our customer accepting delivery during this period.
*** Date to be confirmed once the official UK Government announcements have been made.
PREPARING OUR SHOWROOMS:
Our intention is to fully support the Government efforts to control the spread of the virus. In order to comply with the latest ‘Stay Alert > Control the Virus > Save Lives’ policy our physical showrooms across the UK will remain temporarily closed for the moment. However, to ensure we can reopen safely when Government guidance allows, we have introduced a number of protective measures to safeguard the wellbeing of our customers.
