100% electric without compromise

With the same everyday practicality as DS 3, our 100% electric version offers you pleasure and comfort. Thanks to its E-TENSE powertrain, which incorporates technology derived from DS Automobiles' victories in Formula E in 2019 and 2020, you can enjoy a range of up to 250 miles (in WLTP¹ cycle). A combination of performance and elegance for your electric car.

Luxury goes 100% electric

Pure and intense, the driving of our electric model is distinguished by immediate acceleration and a soothing silence for incomparable comfort of use.


No compromises

DS 3 E-TENSE was designed from the outset to be an electric car: its combination of style and performance gives unique driving enjoyment. Get ready to try a new generation of mobility, with no compromises in performance compared to petrol or diesel motoring and remarkable efficiency.

Access low emission zones

Help improve air quality in the city, and take advantage of certain traffic-restricted lanes and locations that are reserved for low emission vehicles. The city opens up to you.

Tax & financial incentives

Road tax costs (Vehicle Excise Duty) are £0 and there are substantial tax incentives for business car drivers and businesses to make the switch to 100% electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Savings on maintenance costs

With their simplified engine, electric vehicles require little maintenance:


  • Fewer wearing parts need to be replaced
  • Brake discs wear out less quickly
  • Oil changes and filter changes are no longer necessary


Driving modes

With DS 3 E-TENSE three drive modes are available drawing more or less energy from the battery.

Eco mode lets you conserve the range of your electric vehicle. Some functions such as cockpit temperature and recirculating air are slightly altered to reduce energy use.

Sport mode boosts driver enjoyment. When engaged it lets your DS 3  E-TENSE deliver maximum power and torque for a thrilling experience.

Normal mode controls the car’s various parameters to ensure maximum comfort on every journey.

Regenerative breaking

Thanks to our participation in Formula E, we’ve developed several innovations such as regenerative braking. Like an engine brake, you can turn kinetic energy into electricity as you decelerate, thereby charging your electric car’s battery. Through energy recovery during braking you can increase the range of your DS 3 E-TENSE by up to 20% around town. This function can be engaged with a simple push on the gear lever.


Pre-warming your DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE enables you to maximise the range of its battery. This function can be programmed remotely through your MyDS app. It means you’ll get into an electric car that’s at the perfect temperature with a battery that’s also pre-warmed and therefore operating at its most efficient.

It's always the right time for charging

There are several different ways to charge your electric car's battery. The time taken to charge your battery depends on which charging method you use.​


The most convenient method is to get a charging point installed at home (via our partner Pod Point). On longer trips, you can stop for a short break at a rapid charging point. By using one of these you can charge up to 80% of your battery in just 30 mins (with 100kW).

Find your nearest public charging points with Octopus Electroverse. Download the Electroverse app to charge with over 420,000 (and counting!) chargers across the UK & Europe.

Benefit from a tailor-made installation

When you purchase an E-TENSE electric vehicle, you benefit from the expertise of our recommended charging partner, Pod Point, who will provide you with the best service for your charging solution. Your DS retailer will put you in touch with Pod Point once you have placed an order for your vehicle.

MYDS Application


With the MyDS app, discover in real time the status of the charge and the estimated remaining range. When your vehicle is plugged in, the speed and expected charging time are also visible.


With remote charging you can use the MyDS app to start charging or set-up a charging schedule.  By scheduling a charge, you can take advantage of cheaper off-peak electricity tariffs available with some energy providers.


Using the thermal pre-conditioning function allows you to schedule the heating or cooling of your car. As well as ensuring your comfort, it also conserves battery power thereby increasing your range.

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.
