Electrified technology from DS Automobiles

Switch to zero-emission mode and enjoy a new driving experience on board our DS electric cars and plug-in hybrids. E-TENSE technology is available on each of the new DS Automobiles models: 100% electric on DS 3 or plug-in hybrid on DS 4, DS 7 and DS 9. In order to anticipate the profound changes in the automotive industry, the brand is adopting an offensive strategy and aims to become 100% electric by 2024.
From competition comes automotive innovation
Building on our commitment and our two-time Formula E championship title, we have incorporated motorsport technologies such as brake energy recovery into our electric and plug-in hybrid models. Born from performance, our electric models open up new horizons for you, with style.


The advantages of a plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle

Performance & pleasure

Our electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles offer a new driving experience: instantly available torque, zero emissions in 100% electric vehicles and reduced emissions from our plug-in hybrid cars.


Drive an electric or plug-in hybrid car without traffic restrictions: 

  • Access free parking in some cities for electric vehicles
  • Freedom to drive in Ultra Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) and Low Emission Zones (LEZ).


Thanks to the Geofencing function be informed in real time, via your navigation mapping, that your vehicle is going to enter a low emission zone.


Road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) costs are currently £0 for electric vehicles and there are substantial tax incentives for business car drivers and business to make the switch to pure electric or hybrid vehicles.


Electricity is one of most efficient forms of energy, particularly with regenerative braking which enables better energy management for your electric or plug-in car. This also means that some components, such as brake discs, wear more slowly saving you money on servicing and maintenance costs for your new hybrid or electric car.

Legal Information​

¹ The fuel consumption or electric range achieved, and CO2 produced, in real world conditions will depend upon a number of factors including, but not limited to: the accessories fitted (pre and post registration); the starting charge of the battery (PHEV only); variations in weather; driving styles and vehicle load. The plug-in hybrid range requires mains electricity for charging. The WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure) is used to measure fuel consumption, electric range and CO2 figures. Figures shown are for comparison purposes and should only be compared to the fuel consumption, electric range and CO2 values of other cars tested to the same technical standard. The figures displayed for the plug-in hybrid range were obtained using a combination of battery power and fuel. Information correct at time of going to print. More details on WLTP can be found here.
