Electric cars are steadily taking over the market.
French DS brand Automobiles, part of the PSA group, will present this fall at the international motor show in Paris, his first electric.
The manufacturer does not give details on the new car, but judging by previous plans of the company that were previously disclosed to investors, then we are talking about the new generation hatchback DS 3, which renamed the DS3 Crossback and transferred to electric. In addition, at the Paris motor show will debut a plug-in hybrid crossover DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4, which will become the first car company.
As said DS CEO Yves Bonton, by 2025, every model of the brand will be an electrified version. While earlier the idea was to convert to electric “more than one third” of the lineup at the same time.
This manufacturer plays in the championship of Formula E electric car with its factory team and the company expects that the transition to hybrids and fully electric vehicles have a good impact on profit, since PSA already has several ready-made platforms for the production of such machines.
Recently, the PSA group established a new business unit that will be responsible for the vehicles with low or zero harmful emissions. The group also includes the brands Peugeot, Citroen, Opel and Vauxhall. She DS a week and a half ago, presented a concept electric supercar E X-Tense, invented by its designers and engineers.
