DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE: quiet comfort with a dynamic, 100% electric drive
The first 100% electric premium compact SUV on the market, DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE offers electrified performance in an elegant environment that is the DS Automobiles signature.
Our 100% electric DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE is refined and technically advanced with no compromise on space and practicality. You’ll also enjoy a range of 191 - 206 miles* and the ability to recharge 80% of the battery in 30 minutes with 100kW RAPID charging.*
*7hours 30 minutes with 7kW Accelerated charging via home Wallbox
Comfort sets new standards with remarkable management of road noise and the absence of engine vibration. Driving behaviour is improved by the compact battery being centrally located and low down. The battery is placed entirely under the floor. The weight of the battery is partially compensated by a weight saving of 50 kilograms in other components relative to an equivalent DS 3 CROSSBACK.
At 200 miles, in accordance with WLTP drive cycle standards, DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE offers a range that meets the majority of customer needs. Energy management with DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE is fully optimised due to regenerative braking that recharges the battery when the vehicle decelerates and a heat pump that reduces electrical consumption. The DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE is also fitted with a high-performance heat pump. Its excellent efficiency, with a reduced electrical consumption, optimises thermal comfort in the passenger compartment without affecting battery temperature control.
The DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE carries a high-capacity on board charger, available as single phase (7kW) or three phase (11kW) and offers a host of charging options. Charging at a dedicated wall box or standard public terminal will take 8 or 5 hours respectively. As single phase infrastructure is standard in the UK, the single phase (7kW) on board charger will be the standard offering for the UK market. Additionally the car can be charged from a standard domestic socket.
At a public 100kW rapid charge terminal, 80% of the battery can be recharged in just 30 minutes, which represents an average range of 5.5 miles per charging minute.
Largely because automotive luxury now means 100% electric mobility, DS has created the DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE. At first glance, there is not much to differentiate this ‘zero emission’ livery from other versions. But on the outside, its exclusive Pearl Crystal paint finish, satin-chrome finishes, E-TENSE signature emblems and special rear bumper (without an exhaust pipe), give the game away.
Inside, the dedicated information displayed on the digital instrumentation and its gear lever embossed with the ‘E-TENSE’ emblem point to the fact that you are indeed in a 100% electric vehicle. With the batteries housed within the new multi-energy CMP architecture, DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE boasts the same spaciousness and the same boot volume as all other versions.
