It can travel up to 50 km in fully electric mode, touching a top speed of 135 km / h. CO2 emissions of 50 g / km. Let’s talk today about DS7 Crossback E-Tense.
2020 DS7 Crossback E-Tense is the new plug-in hybrid of the French premium brand of the PSA group. Recall that the plug-in cars are those that give the ability to recharge the battery pack with a normal power socket, maximizing the range in pure electric and reducing even more fuel consumption.
The DS7 Crossback E-Tense adopts the same mechanical scheme already unveiled by Peugeot for its 3008 and 508. The hybrid powertrain consists of a 1.6-liter four-cylinder in-line petrol engine, which is assisted by two electric motors. One is mounted on the front axle and one on the rear axle, ensuring all-wheel drive.

But let’s talk about some numbers: the petrol engine delivers a maximum power of 200 horsepower, while the two electric units guarantee 109 total horses. According to the house, the maximum combined power is 300 horsepower and the torque is 450 Nm. There is plenty of it: acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes place in 6.5 seconds.
The battery pack has a capacity of 13.2 kWh and allows the DS7 Crossback E-Tense to travel up to a maximum of 50 km in 100% electric mode in the WLTP approval cycle. The company declares that the battery pack can be recharged in 2 hours using a 32A Wallbox and the 6.6 kW charger, while with a 3.3 kW charger it takes 8 hours for the “full”. When traveling in electric you can reach a maximum speed of 135 km / h. And on the WLTP approval cycle, the CO2 emissions will be 50 g / km.
The driver is left with the option of selecting different driving modes: Zero Emission (EV), Sport, Hybrid and 4WD. If you wish, you can also set the “E-Save” function which allows you to save enough electricity for the last km of the journey (around 9-19 km).
