Premium French brand DS Automobiles has just introduced the plug-in hybrid crossover DS 7 Crossback E-TENSE 225. The fuel consumption of the new product ranges from 1.4 to 1.6 liters. for every 100 km. the way.

The power plant E-TENSE 225 uses a gasoline engine with a capacity of 180 hp. with a torque of 300 Nm, as well as an electric motor of 110 hp and a 13.2 kWh rechargeable battery and an 8-speed automatic transmission. During the start, only an electric motor is used, allowing you to ride with zero emissions at speeds up to 135 km / h.

Then the driver can use the hybrid mode for optimal energy use or the sports mode, which gives you the opportunity to use all available 225 hp. (360 Nm). The battery can provide the crossover with energy to cover up to 72 km of track (measured according to the WLTP standard) in fully electric mode. CO2 emissions are in the range of 31 to 36 g / km and fuel consumption is in the range of 1.4 to 1.6 liters. for every 100 km. the way.

“The battery is charged while driving thanks to a system that builds on the experience gained by DS specialists in racing in Formula E.”

“An operational reserve allows the battery to continue powering the motor if necessary. A gasoline engine is also used to charge the battery. The DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 generates electrical energy during deceleration and braking to increase the overall range. Meanwhile, another feature called “E-SAVE” allows her to save enough energy to drive in purely electric mode for the last 10 or 20 kilometers of the way or to have a fully charged battery. “

The DS 7 Crossback E-TENSE 225 has a standard DS Active Scan suspension, as well as laminated glass (front and rear) and 19-inch London Diamond Black rims. The machine is equipped with autonomous technology DS Connected Pilot level 2, the function of monitoring the attention of the driver.
