At first, (Citroën) DS 9 will be offered with a new E-TENSE plug-in hybrid powertrain comprising a PureTech turbocharged petrol engine with an electric motor combined to deploy 225 horsepower and capable of going between 40 and 50 kilometers (WLTP) in zero emissions mode courtesy of an 11.9kWh battery.
The electric motor, through an 8-speed automatic gearbox, can deploy maximum power of 80kW (110hp) and 320Nm. It is used for driving off from a standstill, boosting acceleration at any speed and for driving in zero emissions mode up to 135km/h (84mph). Electric mode is always automatically selected on start-up to maximise efficiency. It is complemented by a Hybrid mode, designed to automatically control the different types of energy by driving 100% electric, 100% petrol or combining the two if the situation requires it.
The line-up will shortly be topped by two more E-TENSE power units – the first with 250hp, 2-wheel drive plus increased range capability, and the second – a 360 horsepower with an intelligent 4-wheel drive transmission.
In China the 250hp E-TENSE model will be offered from launch.
A 225hp solely PureTech petrol engine model will also be available. All models are equipped with a smooth and fast-changing eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Created in France and produced in China, DS 9 is a car that will be sold all around the world with sales commencing during the second half of 2020.
