All DS models to be electrified from 2025

DS Automobiles has committed to full electrification for its model rage, with its first pure EV due in 2019.

At the Paris Formula E Grand Prix, DS revealed all its production models will feature electrified powertrains from 2025 onwards. The announcement follows DS's recent unveiling of the all-electric DS X E-Tense concept, its vision of the car of 2035.

Each new DS model produced from 2025 onwards will be electrified to some extent, taking the form of either a hybrid or a full EV. The DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4x4 kicks off the French marque’s electric model offensive. It comprises a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine and two electric motors that produce a total of 296bhp. DS claims a pure electric range of 30 miles for its flagship SUV.
