DS Electric Cars
We have a range of electric cars from DS available on our all inclusive monthly subscription model. Read on for more info on our range and DS’s history in the EV space.
Why you should drive a DS electric car
DS aims to combine premium quality with French design. At time of launch in 2019, the DS 3 Crossback E-TENSE was the first full-battery-powered small SUV on the market. It uses the same all-electric engineering also seen in other PSA Group products, the Vauxhall Corsa-e and Peugeot’s e-208 and e-2008 models.
The aspirational brand offers individual design as well as comfort, so if you’re looking for something a bit different, DS could have what you’re after.

How long has DS been producing EVs?
Introduced in 2009 as a sub-brand of Citroën, DS Automobiles is a French luxury vehicle manufacturer that later became a standalone brand in 2015. In May 2018, DS announced that as from 2024, it will launch electric-only four-wheel drive and hybrid vehicles.
The switch to 100% electric vehicle sales will coincide with the launch of the new DS 4, featuring a high-capacity battery with up to 104kWh for a range of over 400 miles.
Why driving an EV is great
There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.
While DS produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:
- There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
- Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
- EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
- Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
