Three plug-in hybrid power units available
With two power units available (250hp and a 360hp 4-wheel drive) our E-TENSE models have CO₂ emissions ranging from 0 to 49g/km and an electric-only range estimated to be between 40 and 50km on the WLTP¹ cycle.
Drive with complete freedom
Charge your battery by braking
When you decelerate, kinetic energy from the wheels is converted into electricity. You can increase the range from your battery by up to 15%.
Program how to use electric mode
This lets you save energy so you can do the last kilometres of your journey in 100% electric Zero Emissions mode. It gives you access to towns, even when traffic is restricted.
Choose your driving mode
Zero Emissions Mode
The Zero Emissions Mode, selected by default, lets you do most of your commuting without consuming fuel.
Designed to automatically manage energy while driving with 100% electric, 100% petrol or combining the two if the situation calls for it, occupants won’t notice it switching and Hybrid Mode combines efficiency with versatility.
In Sport Mode, you’ll enjoy the maximum performance potential of DS 9 with adjusted mapping for the accelerator pedal, gearbox, steering and suspension response. You’ll appreciate dynamic driving pleasure in complete safety.
This mode, available on internal combustion and E-TENSE power units, activates DS ACTIVE SCAN SUSPENSION. It continuously makes the suspension more firm or more supple to guarantee the best possible comfort.
Silent, comfortable driving
Enjoy a peaceful and silent drive when setting off in your car in Zero Emission mode. On E-TENSE models, silence inside is boosted by laminated glass, fitted as standard.
Drive with complete freedom
Our plug-in hybrids guarantee complete flexibility when driving in town, even in traffic congestion. On the windscreen of our E-TENSE models, a cyan LED confirms electric mode is activated for even more comfort.
A true market benchmark, our E-TENSE plug-in hybrid technology emits just 49g/km of CO₂.
Boot and usability
DS 9 enjoys unique proportions, developed by our engineers. With a 510L capacity, DS 9 E-TENSE’s boot is one of the largest in its segment.
E-TENSE only services
Enjoy the many services put in place by DS Automobiles to make your daily life easier: pinpoint charging points and plan your charging, or have a charger installed at home, straight from your smartphone or your car.
A 4-wheel drive version
With its two electric motors, one located at the front, the other at the rear, the power unit of E-TENSE 4×4 360 gives you up to 360hp for remarkable performance.
Range and charging
Run in zero emissions mode
When used in electric mode, our E-TENSE models have a range of up to 50km (WLTP¹ cycle). A perfect distance to help with your daily journeys around town.
Among the factors that have the most impact on the range of your plug-in hybrid car, speed is the most important. Maintaining a constant and moderate speed will enable you to optimise the range of your car.
Driving style and elevation
Your plug-in hybrid car is particularly sensitive to driving and exterior relief. Choose Eco mode (among the four driving modes), practicing eco driving or using regenerative braking are solutions for saving energy by up to 15%.
Temperature control and heating
In case of extreme heat or minus temperatures, the battery must supply the necessary energy to cool or heat the cockpit, using up to 35% more energy in winter. It is therefore preferable to pre-condition (warm or cool) your plug-in hybrid while it is still plugged into the charging point.
