DS electric cars are refined and technically advanced with no compromise on space and practicality, with a battery life of 191 - 206 miles* and the ability to recharge 80% of the battery in 30 minutes. DS electric models feature technology straight from motorsport such as energy recovery during braking thanks to their participation in Formula-E.
DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE offers a new driving experience with: instant torque, zero pollution and a range of driving modes to suit your journey. Choosing a DS electric car means you won’t be subject to traffic restrictions in towns. A bright blue LED located at the top of the windscreen shows that you are driving with electric power, thereby giving access to certain restricted roads and locations.
Thanks to zero driving emissions, DS electric cars benefit from a government environmental bonus of £2,500 plus are exempt from car tax.
Speed has the greatest impact on an electric car’s range. Plan your journey to use roads and motorways to stay at a constant speed in the highest gear possible. Be guided by the indicators on the vehicle: while driving you can easily see whether your vehicle is using a lot of energy, or not and which areas can be adjust to reduce energy consumption.
How you drive and the hilliness of your route play a part in the range of your electric vehicle. Changing the vehicle into ‘Eco’ mode means that it will prioritise economy over other factors, such as speed and subsequently is the best mode to use if you are looking to maximise range. Using the regenerative braking and a smooth driving style can increase your range by up to 20%.
Range can vary by up to 35% between spring and winter. The MyDS app allows you to switch on your DS electric car’s thermal pre-set function when it is plugged in to increase your range and limit the impact of heating or cooling the cockpit on the battery.

DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE is an electric car built without compromise with an interior designed around you. Driver information and controls are all easily accessible, brought to life through the central 10.3 inch HD touchscreen and the driver's 7 inch digital display.
The intuitively designed and technologically advanced interior, is enhanced by excellent isolation from exterior noise and vibrations, leaving you to enjoy the pleasure of driving.
There is a range of charging options available for your DS electric car including accelerated, domestic and rapid charging, each with varied charging times and capabilities. Many charging stations are located around the UK which can be operated by registering with the network, downloading the networks app and some now have card payments built in.
Designed specifically for electric vehicles, accelerated charging is the fatest solution to charging your DS electric car. With power levels commonly at 7kW, your vehicle would fully charge in 7.5 hours. Domestic charging uses a standard household 3 pin socket. This method of charging can take 22 hours from a typical domestic household and can be risky if the socket has not been properly checked. Therefore we would always recommend that you have any socket you plan to charge from checked for suitability by a certified electrician. Rapid charging uses direct currents to charge the battery quickly. They charge the first 80% as fast and efficiently as possible and then stop or slow down charging for the final 20%.
