Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 25h45m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 16 hours 11 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 8 hours 23 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 5h30m 34 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 5h30m 34 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 40 kW † 53 min 140 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 75 kW † 28 min 270 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 100 kW † 75 kW † 28 min 270 mph
CCS (175 kW DC) 100 kW † 75 kW † 28 min 270 mph

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense

Pricing

The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £36,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense is £32,500.

Drivetrain and Performance

The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense is 100 kW (134 hp). The maximum torque is 192 lb-ft. The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 8.7 seconds. The top speed is 93 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense has an estimated total capacity of 50 kWh. The usable capacity is 50 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 180 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 125 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 270 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours 30 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 8 hours and a charge rate of 23 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 25 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 100 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 75 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 125 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense is about 275 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 146 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 400 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 185 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The DS 3 Crossback E-Tense emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
