DS Automobiles will be exclusively electrified by 2025


DS Automobiles has said it will exclusively offer plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) and fully electric vehicles (EV) to its customers by 2025, following the government announcement to bring forward the end date on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars to 2030.

DS Automobiles has used the expertise from its six seasons in Formula E to develop its growing range of electric vehicles.

The pioneering work from Formula E is used to advance the next-generation of DS Automobiles electric and plug-in vehicles, including the all-new DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 and upcoming DS 9, the brand’s first premium saloon, embodying French luxury savoir-faire.

Mark Blundell, UK marketing director, DS Automobiles, said: “The ambitious transition to Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicles (ULEVs) by the Government must be met with equally ambitious work from the industry. DS Automobiles has been a pioneering force for electric and plug-in vehicles since the beginning and is in a strong position to meet the new guidelines five years ahead of time, through its continued investment in and development of pioneering electrified vehicles.”
