  • Technological DS flagship petrol PHEV - DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 is ‘Open to Order’ in the UK
  • Has CO2 from just 33g/km and a potential fuel consumption of 235.4 MPG in WLTP certified conditions
  • In Zero Emission mode, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 has potential to travel 36 miles (WLTP)
  • For a Premium SUV combining 300hp and an electrified powertrain with four-wheel drive transmission, this result is a class benchmark
  • DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 is already to reserve with UK prices starting from £47,570 or £599/Month

DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 is a Plug-in hybrid harnessing a new generation of electrified technology. With its three power units - a turbocharged petrol engine and two electric motors that combine to produce 300hp, this becomes a new reference in terms of combining technology, refinement and performance. It also positions DS 7 CROSSBACK across both C and D SUV sectors.


DS 7 CROSSBACK becomes the first SUV to offer 300hp and four-wheel drive, with a potential 40-miles in 100% electric range, with CO2 from just 33g/km and impressive potential fuel economy. Specifically in ‘Vehicle Low’ specification has potentially 235.4MPG and CO2 at 33g/km with 40-mile EV range, and as ‘Vehicle High’ has 166.2 MPG with CO2 at 37g/km with 34-mile EV range, according to the new WLTP cycle.



This technology is applied to the most refined SUV in the segment and the 200hp PureTech petrol engine is accompanied by two 109hp electric motors, placed on each axle. These can be combined to deploy 300hp with 450Nm of torque distributed to all four wheel, culminating in the potential to accelerate to 62mph in just 5.9 seconds and cover a Kilometre in 25.9 seconds.


With this sophisticated powertrain, the driver can choose different driving modes to fully benefit from the high torque available or to maximise efficiency by driving in Electric mode (‘zero Emission’ is the default mode) to potentially travel 40 miles on electrical energy alone, due to the capacity of the 13.2kWh battery. The 100% electric mode can be operated at speeds up to 83mph.


As a rechargeable hybrid model, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 can recharge its battery from empty to 100% on a dedicated 32A wall-mounted charging terminal in one hour and 45 minutes. The battery is also able to recharge when driving, due to an advanced energy regeneration system developed from the considerable knowledge and experience inherited from DS being a participant in Formula E and Championships winner in 2019.


With an ideally located engine, motors and battery, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4x4 offers occupants an identical interior space to the other models in the range – i.e. without compromising occupant or boot space. The charismatic DS style and refinement are fully exploited with a choice of materials; Alcantara, grained leather or Nappa Leather with many attention-to-detail features like the unique Pearl stitching and Clous de Paris guillochage embossing on key touch-points.


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.
