The elite French automotive company DS Automobiles has introduced a new hybrid version of its flagship SU 7 Crossback. The car received a prefix to the name E-Tense. According to the company’s current policy, this prefix will designate both hybrid modifications of conventional models and fully electric cars.

The premium crossover received a 296-hp hybrid powertrain, an all-wheel-drive system, and a battery, the charge of which should be enough to overcome 50 km. According to the representatives of the automaker, the hybrid motor fully complies with the new environmental standards WLTP.

Under the hood of the crossover is a 197-horsepower petrol engine with a displacement of 1.6 liters, and 2 electric motors with a total output of 107 hp. As the transmission is installed 8-speed “automatic”.

The maximum possible torque is 450 Nm. It is reported that the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h crossover DS 7 Crossback E-Tense will spend 6.5 seconds.

Also worth noting is the braking energy regeneration system, which effectively charges the battery whenever the car slows down. This system was borrowed from race cars racing series Formula E. Now with regard to the speed of the battery pack of the French crossover. If you find a charging station at 13 amperes, then it takes 8 hours to charge, well, at 13 amps and 6.6 kWh, this time is reduced to 2 hours.

Finally, we note that, as promised earlier by the company DS, the luggage compartment of the crossover DS 7 Crossback E-Tense, in contrast to some other hybrids will get quite a lot of free space. Note that the problem with many of these cars is that because of the bulky batteries, the volume of this very luggage compartment is significantly reduced. In the crossover E-Tense they will be installed under the floor.

Well and not for a long time, we wrote about rather unusual appearance of new French crossover DS 3 Crossback.
