DS Automobiles has opened orders for the DS 9 E-Tense 250. The elegant limousine gets a new electrified drive, according to a company announcement. In the WLTP cycle, the purely electric range is up to 67 kilometers. Prices for the 4.93 meter long plug-in hybrid start at 53.810 euros for the sportier Performance Line+ equipment variant and for 56.560 euros for the elegant Rivoli version+.

With the double heart for the DS 9, the electrification strategy that has been pursued since the brand was founded in 2015 is being consistently continued. As early as 2025, the Parisian premium brand will remove all pure combustion engines from its portfolio and only offer plug-in hybrids and fully electric models. The DS 9 E-Tense 250 represents an important building block on this path.

The new plug-in hybrid with 184 kW (250 hp) has a 4-cylinder petrol engine with 147 kW (200 hp), which is combined with an 80 kW (110 hp) electric motor. The maximum speed of the DS 9 E-Tense 250 is electronically limited to 240 km/h, in pure E mode the limit is 135 km/h.The new battery has a total capacity of 15 kWh. With the 7.4 kW on-board charger, a charge from 0 to 100 percent takes 2 hours and 23 minutes.

According to the manufacturer, the DS 9 stands for the highest level of comfort, both in terms of driving characteristics and the interior. Seat heating, ventilation and massage also benefit rear passengers. Thanks to a wheelbase of 2.90 meters, the second row also enjoys exceptional legroom. The almost four millimeter thick acoustic glazing (all around) dampens the outside noise and minimizes the vibrations. According to DS, particularly comfortable gliding is ensured by the active, camera-controlled DS Active Scan Suspension. It is able to recognize bumps in the road and anticipate them. Together with inclination and acceleration sensors, a camera analyzes the condition of the road. The data is transmitted in real time to a computer that controls each individual wheel independently.

The use of the finest materials is standard for the DS 9 E-Tense 250. With Performance Line+, black Alcantara is combined with a glossy black radiator grille and carmine red hubcaps. The controls below the central screen are encased in crystal glass. The Rivoli+ offers seats made of Bavarian nappa leather with a finish that is modeled on the metal straps of wristwatches.

  1. What’s going on in the brains of the developers of this car? I don’t want to make sense of it. 69 km electric range no longer lures a dog outside the door. But maybe a few people with bulging petty cash who don’t give any further thought to the point of electromobility.
