The flagship of French technology, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 has just passed the certification tests with a result of 31 grams of CO2 per kilometre and a record consumption of 1.4 litres of gasoline per 100 km according to the new WLTP certification cycle.

In Zero Emission mode, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 is able to travel 58 kilometres (WLTP).

For a Premium SUV combining 300 horsepower electrified powertrain with a four-wheel drive transmission, this result is a benchmark.

DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 is already available in many markets at prices starting at 54,300 euros.

The rechargeable hybrid proposed by DS paves the way for a new generation of technology. With its three engines, a turbocharged petrol block and two electric engines for a combined power of 300 horsepower, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 refers in terms of technology and refinement.

DS 7 CROSSBACK becomes the first SUV to offer 300 horsepower and four-wheel drive with 58 kilometres of 100% electric range, 31 grams of CO2 emissions per kilometre driven and an average fuel consumption of 1.4 litres of gasoline per 100 kilometres, according to the new WLTP cycle. This new procedure imposes a much more realistic driving style compared to previous data.

Developed in France, this technology is applied in the most refined SUV in the segment. The 200hp PureTech engine is accompanied by two 109hp electric motors, placed on each axle. They are pooled with an eight-speed automatic gearbox for a combined power of 300 horsepower and 450Nm of torque distributed by a four-wheel drive transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h is achieved in just 6.6 seconds and the 1,000-meter standing start is covered in 27 seconds.

The driver can choose different driving modes to fully enjoy the torque or to drive in Electric mode (‘zero emission’, default mode) to travel 58 kilometres on his own electrical power alone, thanks to the 13.2 kWh battery. In this 100% electric mode, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 can reach 135 km/h.

A rechargeable hybrid model, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 can have its battery charged from 0 to 100% on a dedicated 32A wall-mounted charging terminal in one hour and 45 minutes. The battery is also charged while driving thanks to an advanced energy regeneration system inherited from Formula E.

With ideally placed engines and battery, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 offers a strictly identical interior space to the other models in the range. DS's charismatic style and refinement are fully exploited with a unique choice of materials such as Alcantara, grained leather or nappa leather and strong identity signs such as Point Perle seams or Clous de Paris guillochage.

The technology is not just about propulsion modes. DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 offers DS CONNECTED PILOT, a level 2 autonomous driving system, DS ACTIVE SCAN SUSPENSION, a suspension system controlled by camera, DS PARK PILOT, for parking without a move, or DS SAFETY, which includes all the safety elements necessary for today's driving.
