The power is generated by the PureTech four-cylinder engine which produces 197 horsepower (200 PS/145 kW) coupled to the 107 horsepower (109 PS/80 kW) electric motor. This is enough power to propel a DS 9 to speeds of DS 9 up to 135 km/h (84 miles per hour) using electricity alone. With the engine however it is able to go up to an electronically restricted maximum speed of 250 kilometers per hour (149 miles per hour).
This motor runs on a revolutionary 15.6 kWh battery, which has the same number of cells that are used in the DS 9 E-Tense 225, however, it allows it to go further than the DS 9 E-Tense 250 up to 70 kilometers (43 miles) in urban areas in addition to up to 61 kilometers (38 miles) under diverse driving situations, as per the WLTP test cycle. The same test cycle has that the DS 9 E-Tense 250 as emitting only 26g/km of CO2 and, even more astonishingly, using only 1.1 Liter/100km (214 MPg) in fuel. These figures provide the sedan with advantages in France which include exemption from the first part of corporate car tax and a deduction for the cost of batteries and exempted from paying the “weight surcharge” that is scheduled to take effect in 2022. The DS 9 E-Tense 250 will come at two levels of trim: Line + and Rivoli Line + as well as Rivoli +. The first trim comes with the Black Alcantara interior with gold stitching, DS Performance Line badges in the doorways, DS Wings, and the trunk strip is chrome. The grille is black and glossy. It also has a DS Performance Line logo and the wheels are 19 inches alloy. The Rivoli+ is a tribute to the Tuileries quarter in Paris and features diamond-shaped premium trim offered in three variations. The focus is on high-quality materials for this trim and everything, including the grab handles, is covered in leather.
