Deliveries for the first ever electric DS model, the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense, will commence this upcoming January, with UK pricing set at £32,350 ($40,960) for the Prestige grade and £35,350 ($44,758) for the Ultra Prestige. Both prices include government incentives.

According to DS, the EV has a range of 200 miles (322 km), a 134 HP (100 kW) electric motor, a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery and an energy recovery system, plus it can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 8.7 seconds.

“DS Automobiles is where luxury and advanced technology come together. In 2019, we are launching E-TENSE and we have two models which represent world premieres in their respective segments. E-TENSE unites the demands of the energy transition and the pleasure of the car for independent mobility. We have chosen to completely electrify our range,” said DS Automobiles CEO, Yves Bonnefont.

“From This year onwards, each of our models will be offered with an E-TENSE, BEV or PHEV, version, which uses energy in the most efficient way supplemented by regenerating energy during deceleration. DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE and DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4×4 are the realisation of our electrification strategy with no compromise in space, while unparalleled in style and comfort.”

In order to not compromise passenger and boot space, DS mounted the battery cells within the center tunnel as well as in the space normally reserved for the fuel tank on the ICE-powered versions.

In terms of equipment, the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense comes as standard with Matrix LED headlights plus a full range of active safety systems. Meanwhile, on the road, drivers will be able to choose between ECO, Normal and Sport modes.
