E-Tense Technology

Regenerative Breaking

If it’s good enough for a Formula E car it’s good enough for DS Automobiles. Regenerative braking allows the transfer of energy created as you apply the breaks or decelerate into electricity to be stored in your battery. This in turn allows you to extend the battery range from day to day driving. To engage this function you just push on the gear lever to activate. This allows you to improve the DS 7 E-Tense battery range by 20%

E-Save Function

This driving function allows a driver to select E-Save. This allows the vehicle to store electrical energy for future use. This is a handy feature when you are driving in a restricted zone that is sole reserved for clean vehicles.

E-Tense Driving Modes

As a driver you have control. You can choose the driving mode you need for the driving conditions you find yourself in.

Let’s breakdown the 3 driving modes:

Zero Emissions:
This mode is activated by default. This is the mode you need to be in when driving in urban areas, it allows you to travel up to 40miles on 100% electric driving.

This mode switches between the use of electric and petrol engines, allowing you to travel efficiently in urban areas and motorways.

Active Sport:
Switch on all of the E-Tense power. Activating this mode allows all the petrol engines power and the 2 electric motors to be used at the same time. This is when you really feel the acceleration of the 300hp E-Tense.

Advantages Of Owning The E-Tense Plug-In Hybrid

On start-up and in zero-emissions driving mode you’ll experience total silent driving. Not only will you not hear any combustion engine sounds. You’ll also not hear road noise or any noise from outside. This is compliments of the laminated glazing that comes as standard with the E-Tense model.

You have the freedom to drive anywhere in any of the UK’s restrictions for clean vehicle driving. The DS plug-in hybrid has a cyan LED located at the top of the windscreen to indicate that the 100% electric mode is activated - allowing you to drive in the restricted zones such as Central London.

Stay connected to your E-Tense DS 7 with the DS mobile app. The app allows you to stay up to date with your charging status, available range in electric mode. And you can control the programming temperature and pre-set the car before you enter. Watch this video on all the benefits of the E-Tense remote control.
