01 Introducing the DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE The DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 plug-in hybrid features a brand new plug-in hybrid power unit, which combines two electric motors with a petrol engine. Positioned over each axle, the motors deliver a combined output of 80kW, providing you with an all-electric range of 36 miles (WLTP cycle) – plenty to achieve the daily commute. The latest generation batteries power the motors and are equipped with compact cells that enable them to be mounted below the rear seats, negating the need to compromise on cockpit or boot space.
02 DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE Exterior As a vehicle designed to take motoring to the next level, the all-new DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 plug-in hybrid is unafraid to turn heads. With an aggressive and purposeful front end, characterised by a prominent grille and slim, angular headlamps, it exudes self-assurance, and the sculpted bonnet and wide wheel arches lend a muscular feel that hints at its strength on any terrain. The bright blue LED light, positioned at the top of the windscreen, leaves you in no doubt this is a vehicle with electric capability, and gives you access to otherwise restricted zones. Elegance is added to the design through the gently sweeping roofline, and unique taillights and striking 19-inch alloy wheels finish the look to perfection.
04 Push the limits with our technology Performance can be taken to the limits in the new DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE. Helping to extend your range by up to 20% is regenerative braking technology, which converts kinetic energy – that would otherwise be lost during deceleration – into electricity and stores it in the batteries. When it’s time to speed up again, the energy is used to power your vehicle. Your drive is also enhanced by four modes. The 100% ELECTRIC mode is ideal for urban motoring, delivering a range of 36 miles without utilising the petrol engine. HYBRID, meanwhile, switches between the two to provide optimal performance in town and on the open road. Choose SPORT mode to combine both petrol and electric power for the ultimate on-road experience, or select 4x4 mode for help conquering difficult terrain or challenging weather conditions. Finally, there’s the E-SAVE function, which stores electrical energy in the batteries ready for use later. This is ideal for entering restricted traffic zones that are reserved for clean vehicles. Use the touchscreen map to see where you’ll benefit from electric mode and find charging points.
