With a length of 4.93 metres, width of 1.85 metres and large 690mm diameter wheels, its design has a sleek silhouette with a steeply raked rear window, fastback style.
At first, 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 225hp and capable of going between 40 and 50 kilometres (WLTP) in zero emissions mode courtesy of an 11.9kWh battery.
