The manufacturer, whose Formula E team is run in conjunction with Techeetah, has taken two drivers to the championship on three occasions – Jean-Eric Vergne twice and Antonio Felix da Costa last year.

“We have been the first premium car maker to enter Formula E and our brand has significantly benefitted from the work and the successes of DS Performance, both in terms of development and brand awareness,” said DS Automobiles director general Béatrice Foucher. “If today DS Automobiles is the multi-energy constructor with the lowest average of CO2 emissions in Europe, it is also thanks to the expertise acquired in Formula E.”
