With DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE, the electric car is entering a new era. Up to 200 miles range on the WLTP cycle and a unique design: innovation by DS is waiting for you.
The batteries in your DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE ensure range can be extended. Due to energy recovery during braking you can cover up to 236 miles around town. Powerful and reliable at the same time, every journey is special.
Numerous things can shape the range of your electric vehicle, among them weather conditions as well as your driving style. Find the factors that influence the effectiveness of an electric car’s battery.
Warming up at the start of a journey demands a lot from the batteries inside an electric car, thereby reducing their range. It’s preferable to pre-warm or pre-cool the cockpit using your MyDS app while your DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE is still being charged.
Intense heat and freezing cold affect the chemical reaction inside batteries, preventing them from maintaining an optimal level of charge. In DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE, the heat pump controls the temperature of the batteries and reduces the impact of extreme temperatures.
In an electric car, driving at a consistent speed maintains range. Prioritise eco-driving with three drive modes accessed via the selector.
There are different ways to charge your electric car’s battery. Depending on the means of charging you choose, charging time can be increased or decreased.
You can decide to charge in your usual parking places: overnight at home or during the day at work for example. On longer trips, stop for a short break at a rapid charging point. You’ll recover 80% of your range in 30 minutes.
Before starting out it’s easy to plan your trip: we’ll show you charging points on your route. At a 100kW rapid charger you can add 5.6 miles of range every minute.
With the MyDS smartphone app, you can see the car’s current state of charge and approximate remaining range. When your car is plugged in, the speed and expected remaining charging time are also shown.
With control of remote charging you can use the MyDS app to commence charging or initiate a programmed charge. A programmed charge enables you to use the most beneficial energy rates to replenish your battery.
Configuring the cockpit's thermal pre-set function lets programme the heating or air conditioning of your car. Designed for your comfort, this function also conserves the range of your batteries if the car is charging.
A cleaner, better performing car
Enjoy a special relationship with the town
DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE was designed from the start to be an electric car: its combination of style and comfort gives unique driving enjoyment. Get ready to try something new with instantly available torque and remarkable efficiency.
Today, because of pollution, many towns are subject to traffic restrictions. DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE has a bright blue LED located at the top of the windscreen to indicate that this is an electric vehicle. Some restricted roads and locations will give you access.
Benefit from government incentives
Servicing made simple
An electric car gives you the right to an environmental bonus. In 2019, this is £3,500 towards the purchase of a 100% electric vehicle. The major incentive of an electric car is it may be exempt from car tax.
With their uncomplicated motor, electric vehicles don’t need much servicing. Furthermore, electricity is one of the most efficient forms of energy, resulting in a longer lifespan for some components. And brake discs don't wear out as quickly because of energy recovery during braking.
