Premium French brand DS Automobiles introduced plug-in hybrid crossover DS 7 Crossback E-TENSE 225. Fuel consumption of new items is from 1.4 to 1.6 l per 100 km. path.
In the structure of the power plant E-TENSE 225 uses a gasoline engine capacity of 180 HP with a torque of 300 Nm and an electric motor for 110 HP and the battery is 13.2 kWh and automatic transmission with 8 speeds. During the launch the electric motor is only used to drive with zero emissions at speeds up to 135 km/h.
Then the driver can use the hybrid mode for optimal use of energy or sports mode which gives you the opportunity to use all the available 225 HP (360 Nm). The battery can provide the crossover energy to overcome up to 72 km (measured according to the standard WLTP) in all-electric mode. CO2 emissions range from 31 to 36 g/km and fuel consumption from 1.4 to 1.6 l per 100 km. path.
“The battery is recharged while you drive thanks to the system, the creation of which used the experience gained by the specialists from DS to participate in the Formula E”.
“Operating reserve allows the battery to continue power to the motor if necessary. The petrol engine is also used to charge the battery. DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 generates the electric energy during deceleration and braking to increase the overall range of stroke. Meanwhile, another feature called “E-SAVE”, enables her to save enough energy to drive in pure electric mode at the last 10 or 20 kilometers or have a fully charged battery”.
DS 7 Crossback E-TENSE 225 has standard suspension DS Active Scan, as well as laminated glass (front and rear) and 19-inch wheels in Diamond Black, London. The machine is equipped with Autonomous technology DS Connected Pilot level 2 function monitoring the driver’s attention.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the crossovers DS 7 Crossback “taught” to monitor driver fatigue. The driver will monitor a special camera. Such control systems for fatigue in 2022 will be fitted to all new cars in the EU.
