Benefits of E-TENSE plug-in hybrid technology

Silence and driving comfort

Enjoy the silence inside during start-up or in Electric mode. A feeling of tranquillity amplified by the laminated glass that comes as standard on E-TENSE versions.

Drive everywhere in all circumstances

Opting for the plug-in hybrid means giving yourself the freedom to move around the city, even when traffic is restricted. Our E-TENSE versions are equipped with a blue LED, located at the top of the windscreen, to indicate that electric mode is activated.

Emissions and consumption

Our E-TENSE plug-in hybrid power units have market leading emissions and consumption: 39-35 g/km of CO₂ and 188.3-166.2 mpg (WLTP¹ cycle) on the E-TENSE 4x4 300 power unit.

Boot space and practicality

Our engineers have created an ingenious and unique architecture, retaining the practicality and size of the boot when compared to the petrol and diesel equivalents. With a capacity of 555 litres, the boot on E-TENSE versions is one of the largest in the PHEV segment.

Dedicated E-TENSE services

Route navigation to charging points, schedule charging from smartphone, or installation of a charging point at home: we offer many services for more peace of mind.

A 4-wheel drive version

With an electric motor at the front (110hp) and one at the rear (113hp), the E-TENSE 4x4 300 power unit delivers 300hp for remarkable levels of performance.

E-TENSE Technology & refinement

While retaining the DNA and identity of DS 7 CROSSBACK, our E-TENSE plug-in hybrid versions have been designed for optimal ease of use.


Switch to zero emissions mode

Regular charging is a vital part of making full use of a plug-in hybrid car. Once charged our E-TENSE models offer an electric range of up to 36 miles (WLTP¹) in combined cycle (AER combined) and up to 46 miles in city cycle (EAER city), sufficient range to carry out most daily journeys using 100% electric.



Discover the factors that influence the range of your plug-in hybrid


Speed has the greatest impact on the range of your plug-in hybrid vehicle. When driving at low speeds, choose electric mode. It is important to moderate your speed on dual carriageways and motorways in order to conserve the range.

Driving style and route elevation

How you drive and how many hills you encounter on your route both play a part in the range of your plug-in hybrid vehicle. As well as using Eco mode, selected from the three available driving modes, we suggest you focus on eco-driving. Using the regenerative braking function and adopting a smooth driving style can increase your range by up to 15%.


Extreme heat or freezing cold affect the chemical reactions that occur within batteries. Range from a fully charged battery can vary by as much as 35% between summer and winter due to changes in the ambient temperature. 


Using the MyDS app, you are able to use the car's thermal pre-conditioning function. This allows the car to heat or cool to the required temperature before starting your journey whilst plugged in, therefore conserving battery energy and increasing your range.

Legal information
¹ Figures shown for fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and range conform to the WLTP test procedure on which new vehicles have been approved since 1st September 2018. The WLTP test replaces the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) which was the testing protocol used previously. With more realistic testing conditions, fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions measured to WLTP protocols are, in many cases, higher than those measured according to the NEDC procedure. Values for fuel consumption, CO₂ emissions and range can vary depending on conditions of use and different factors such as: frequency of charging, driving style, speed, specification, options, kinds of tyres, exterior temperature and temperature inside the vehicle.
