A new world is opening up for you

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.

Cockpit temperature
Outside temperatures
Driving style

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.
