E-TENSE : Electric and hybrid cars by DS
Find out about our cars
Our 100% electric DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE is refined and technically advanced with no compromise on space and practicality. You’ll also enjoy a range of 191 - 206 miles* and the ability to recharge 80% of the battery in 30 minutes with 100kW RAPID charging^.
*The electric range you achieve in real life conditions will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. Only compare fuel consumption and CO2 figures with other cars tested to the same technical standard.
A Plug-in hybrid harnessing a new generation of electrified technology. With three power units - a turbocharged petrol engine and two electric motors that combine to produce 300hp, this becomes a new reference in terms of combining technology, refinement and performance. Furthermore, the vehicle will produce just 33-37g/km CO2 and has an electric only range of 36 miles (WLTP cycle).
Innovation from competition
Thanks to our participation in Formula E, our electric and plug-in hybrid models feature technology straight from motor sport such as energy recovery during braking. Born out of performance, the 2019 electric car opens new horizons - in style.

Performance & pleasure
Drive in town whenever you want
Our electric and plug-in hybrid cars offer somewhere to enjoy driving. Revel in a new experience: instantly available torque, zero pollution in electric mode and reduced emissions from our plug-in hybrid.
Choose an electric or plug-in hybrid car and you won’t be subject to traffic restrictions in towns. A bright blue LED located at the top of the windscreen shows that you are driving with electric power, thereby giving access to certain restricted roads and locations.
Simple & efficient
Enjoy an environmental bonus with an electric or plug-in hybrid car. In 2019, it is £3,500 on a 100% electric vehicle. The major incentive of an electric car is it may be exempt from car tax.
Electricity is one of most efficient forms of energy, particularly with regenerative braking which enables better energy management. As well as that, some components such as brake discs wear more slowly. From a financial perspective, electricity has more benefits compared to diesel or petrol.
^You can obtain 0-80% of the vehicle charge in 30 minutes from a 100kW rapid charging station. Rapid charging stations are widely available across the UK at various location and their power rating varies, typically from 50kW and sometimes up to 350kW.
The charging time may vary according to the type and power of the charging station, the outside temperature at the charging point and the battery temperature.
