Debuting this fall as a 2025 model, the DS 8 Crossback marks a turning point for Citroen’s luxury brand DS Automobiles.

This electric vehicle merges the practicality of a crossover with the sleekness of a sedan, drawing design inspiration from the visionary Aero Sports Lounge concept revealed in 2020.

While the concept car boasted features like rear suicide doors and a massive battery pack, the production DS 8 Crossback prioritizes everyday usability.

Expect a streamlined exterior with flush door handles, slim LED lights, and a closed upper grille. Spy shots reveal a unique X-shaped steering wheel and a driver-focused interior with a large touchscreen and digital instrument cluster.

The DS 8 Crossback rides on a platform shared with Peugeot electric models, hinting at a potentially long driving range. This electric flagship paves the way for a new era of sustainable luxury for DS.

Scheduled for release later this year, the DS 8 Crossback marks a significant shift for the French brand DS. Built on the Stellantis STLA Medium platform, the DS 8 is poised to be DS’s first all-electric vehicle, ditching combustion engines entirely.

This electric architecture boasts an impressive potential range of over 700 kilometers (435 miles) according to the WLTP standard, putting it at the forefront of electric vehicle technology.

With powertrain options expected to range from 160 kilowatts (214 horsepower) to a robust 285 kilowatts (382 horsepower), the DS 8 caters to a variety of driving preferences.

This eco-friendly SUV is part of a larger electrification effort at Stellantis, with the Melfi plant in Italy gearing up for the production of several electric vehicles from various brands within the Stellantis group.
