Paris, 7 July 2020

Based on an electrification strategy established at the brand’s launch in 2015, DS Automobiles is already class leader among the premium multi-energy brands with the lowest CO2 emissions in Europe. Driven by the 100% electric DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE and plug-in hybrid DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 with 300 horsepower and 4 wheel drive, DS Automobiles reveals an average CO2 emissions of less than 80g/km during the first six months of 2020.





With experience gained in Formula E from world titles lifted by DS TECHEETAH and Jean-Éric Vergne, the E-TENSE range is the benchmark in a premium electric vehicle market that’s particularly vibrant. Rivals’ expertise has pushed the brand to make competitive technical decisions, for the benefit of customers and reduction in CO2 emissions. Since 2019, DS 3 CROSSBACK and DS 7 CROSSBACK have been available with electrified versions.


The DS 9 saloon comes next with a range of primarily plug-in hybrid power units between 225 and 360 horsepower. In the multi-energy premium brand class, DS Automobiles is at the top with an average 79.9g/km of CO2 in the first half of the year, while no other premium manufacturer gets under the 110g/km barrier.

This performance is the result of hard work on research and development which led to the design of DS 3 CROSSBACK and DS 7 CROSSBACK.


Their efficiency relies on their efficient multi-energy platforms, a cutting edge technology and reduced mass that puts them at the top of their respective segments. Reigning Formula E title holder and current leader in the 2019/2020 championship, as well as on everyday roads, DS Automobiles is showing its leadership.
