Of the DS3 Crossback E-Tense 100% electric or the DS7 hybrid 300 horsepower, which will be your favorite? We look at these two new products that delight fans of elegant French automobiles !
DS or Distinctive Series: the DS, which once rhymed with Goddess, is no longer just a model name, but a brand in every sense of the word.
Ninth generation of the famous family of car manufacturers, Charles Peugeot is the real instigator of this new car line. He presents us with two emblematic models !
" This vehicle has a capacity of 50 kilowatt hours, which translates into a range of 320 km, in WLTP cycles, so it's real range and what sets us apart from our competitors is the job of two technologies that are the heat pump and active cooling of the batteries.
So, it seems indeed quite advanced - and technical - that said, it is very important, because these technologies allow the vehicle to operate at the best operating temperature of the batteries and therefore guarantee autonomy whatever the temperature ranges."
The DS7 Crossback E-Tense, on the other hand, offers hybrid plugin technology, that is, rechargeable hybrid.
In the mountains, in snowy or muddy conditions, you can force the car into 4X4 mode.

We want something that has a very strong style identity, that is comfortable, that is luxurious in the sense of materials, the art of living and the art of travel. "
You just have to take a look at the upholstery of the vehicle seats, to notice other parallels with the world of luxury. The leather is the highlight, which recalls the shape of the bracelets of the most precious timepieces ... Design and avant-garde in terms of style and technology !
