All-electric DS 3 Crossback set for the Paris Motor Show
DS will be raising its EV game in Paris with an all-electric DS 3 Crossback SUV
DS will reveal an all-electric supermini-sized car at the Paris Motor Show in October. Possiby called the DS 3 Crossback, it will be the first car within the PSA group to use the new e-CMP platform technology.
The new car will play a starring role in DS' electrification strategy, which will see the young french premium brand exclusively sell plug-in hybrid and full electric cars from 2025 onwards.
The decision to debut the all-electric e-CMP architecture on a DS rather than a Peugeot or Citroen stems from the DS brand's position in the group as the go-to marque for technology, according to DS vice president of product Eric Apode.
Precise technical details remain under wraps for now, but Apode promises that the new EV will be more than a boutique item and will be competitive alongside other contemporary EVs. If, as rumoured, the car does take DS3 Crossback form it’ll be a direct rival for the impressive Hyundai Kona EV.
