You own the vehicle DS 3 e-Tense ?

I bought this vehicle in June 2020 so it’s been 2 years now that I ride with.
It was sold to me with an average autonomy of 320kms.
But for a few weeks my vehicle indicates a maximum recharge of 270 km that I report to the DS workshops.
The workshop manager gives me a document justifying that it is normal that after 2 years or 40,000kms the vehicle will have a maximum load of 268kms after 4 years 247kms, 233kms from 6 years and 224kms after 8 years.
I don’t know if the other vehicles of other brands are the same thing.
But I wanted to have this information when buying
For me I was deceived by the DS brand .
Have other people noticed the same thing as me ?

DS 3 e -Tense ds 3 crossback (50 kWh) – 22,500 km

First DS 3 Cross Back is large chic that I buy to roll every day (I roll in BMW 745th the rest of the time) in replacement of my zoe.
In terms of damping comfort is really very good, just like in finish (dashboard and leather doors) for the category . The equipment is complete with in particular assisted driving or reversing cameras etc ..
Large plus for the bracelet seats which are very beautiful … Too bad they do not heat up when packing the vehicle.
The best point is undoubtedly the LED matrix fires that commission automatically (and faster than on my BMW) and the width of the beam. This makes it an excellent night car.
The sound insulation is good for the category, the audio system of good quality even if a focal option would be a plus.
The three weak points:
A) Gangeted consumption on highway
B) Autonomy back on the highway (but takes charge fast without worry)
C) The vehicle is delivered with a charging box 1.8 kW 8a: When I had the zoe the wired box took up to 3.6 on Green Up and not the. This case is an interstellar stew: big ugly and downright useless.
Last point and not the least: the DS brand does a lot for its customers, and I really feel like I was treated in a premium way, which is important for a clientele accustomed to this service.
For me it is a good vehicle that will gain autonomy with the new batteries. I recommend

DS 3 e -Tense ds 3 crossback (50 kWh) – 23000 km

I am completely delighted with this car, let’s not be too severe, for a model released in 2019, do not try to compare with a model that will be released in 2022 or 2024 … The judgment by a driver specialist in the EV is always too severe. Let us remain within the reach of drivers who do not yet know electric vehicles.
This 100% French car, Made in France does not have to pale in front of all the other brands, on the contrary let’s be proud of this French little gem.. Bravo to DS.
Let’s not forget that it is above all a state of mind. Without looking for: the best performance, the fastest, the greatest autonomy, the cheapest, the most beautiful in the world, etc … I prefer the pleasure of driving, in the few that km that I would do with a big battery … Or win a few seconds on my journeys. To date, after more than 22,000 km on the clock, I always have fun driving this car. It is very important to judge the charging network, and not only the cars. A very good mastery of recharge management, makes it possible to erase the problems of autonomy, and gives a positive image of the experiences of. We know very well now that autonomy depends on many different parameters, and the driving style of each driver, so it is always too easy to question everything on a car, even if you have a not eco -friendly driving, In poor climatic conditions, on a long journey in highway only, it is not the fault of the car when the weather is not good, that it is bad and cold ..
It’s a bit of us, drivers, to adapt a minimum to these new technologies, pending the next technological developments, which will make us the perfect car of our dreams. We will manage to improve everything technically over time … But since I don’t want to wait too long, I said to myself: French pleasure and comfort above all, before everyone else … (in 2019 everyone world does not yet drive high -end…) and it is still a feat of being able to go out in series a well -completed electric car. Whatever your budget, go to the electric car, whatever the brand, adapt and consider that it is an effort for France and the planet.

DS 3 Crossback: What is the Urbain Premium French Urban Office on occasion ?

Not very widespread on our roads, the DS 3 crossback, however, does not lack qualities. And he aged pretty well. A recommendable purchase on occasion. As long as its line does not displease you and you are not looking for a family model.

Presentation of the DS 3 Crossback

At the wheel, the DS 3 crossback immediately seduces. Despite his ground clearance, he does not impose a SUV typed driving: the body movements contained, the reassuring stability and the fairly incisive steering make it pleasant to lead. However, we would like a direction that informs better of the adhesion limits and endowed with a better defined point. On bulging roads, it is often necessary to correct the trajectory to go straight. Apart from the front seats lacking lateral support, the preventive depreciation ensures good comfort. The dashboard is as elegant as it is refined. The high versions clearly play the refinement card with a much more exclusive interior than those of the Mini Countryman and Audi Q2. But this DS3 does not have the soul of a family: fairly narrow cabin and reduced rear windows. Same note concerning the chest volume, rather chick. The thermal engines proposed are in line with the weight of the DS3 Crossback. The E-Tense electric version is also successful, but its overweight degrades its behavior somewhat with a more present underside. Finally, electrical consumption and autonomy do not convince.
