Adakah Powertrain DS 7 PHEV Baru Ini Dapat Diskaun EEV Serupa Dengan X5?

DS, cabang premium PSA dan cabang jenama Citroën, mengumumkan awal minggu ini ketersediaan varian hibrid plug-in baru dari DS 7 Crossback mereka. Versi ini dinamakan DS 7 Crossback E-TENSE 225. Versi Crossback DS 7 ini dilengkapi dengan suspensi DS Active Scan sebagai standard. Sistem ini menggunakan kamera untuk menentukan daya redaman secara aktif. Ia juga mendapat kaca depan dan belakang yang dilaminasi untuk kalis bunyi yang lebih baik.

Tetapi tentu saja, komponen powertrain adalah yang paling penting. Ia dilengkapi dengan enjin petrol 180hp, 300Nm yang dikawinkan dengan motor elektrik 110hp, 320Nm yang menarik tenaga dari bateri boleh dicas semula 13.2kWh. Transmisi automatik 8-kelajuan menghantar kuasa ke roda depan.

Crossback DS 7 tersedia dengan harga sekitar RM250,000 sebagai model CBU dengan enjin turbo 1.6 liter. Mungkin jika PSA mengikuti jejak BMW Malaysia, mereka dapat memperkenalkan versi CKD dengan powertrain PHEV baharu ini dan menerima diskaun harga runcit 35% yang disarankan dengan status EEV? Saya fikir ia adalah idea yang baik. Ia boleh menurunkan harga ke bawah RM200,000 seperti ketika DS 7 pertama kali dilancarkan di Malaysia.

Naza dan PSA bersama-sama menguruskan Naza Automotive Manufacturing di Gurun, Kedah. Kilang ini menghasilkan kenderaan di platform EMP2 yang sama, jadi ia harus dapat menyatukan kereta seperti DS 7 Crossback E-TENSE.

Kenyataan Media

DS Automobiles is continuing with its electrification strategy. Alongside DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE (100% electric) and DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4×4 (4-wheel drive, 300 horsepower plug-in hybrid), the range is complemented with a new DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 model. 

Cutting edge technology
Boosted by experience gained in Formula E since 2015 and supported by Jean-Éric Vergne, defending champion with DS TECHEETAH, electrification is continuing to expand into the DS Automobiles range. 

DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 has a 180 horsepower petrol engine (Euro 6.3 emissions standard) with 300Nm of torque, backed up by a 110 horsepower electric motor fitted straight to the eight-speed automatic gearbox.

At start-up only the electric motor is used, enabling zero emissions mode driving up to 135km/h. The driver can then choose hybrid mode which optimises energy use, or sport mode which summons all the available power (225 horsepower and 360Nm combined).

The 13.2kWh battery, located beneath the floor has a range of up to 55km (WLTP standard) or up to 72km (WLTP low speed standard) in electric mode. CO2 emissions are between 31 and 36g/km and fuel consumption is between 1.4 and 1.6 litres/100km (WLTP). At high speed, fuel consumption is between 6.1 and 6.5 litres/100km, according to the test equipment.

The battery is charged while driving thanks to a system that benefits from the developments and experience that DS has acquired in Formula E. An operating reserve enables the battery to continue supplying the electric motor if it’s required. The petrol engine is also used to charge the battery. DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 generates electrical energy during deceleration and braking in order to increase its range. Another function, called “E-SAVE” meanwhile enables it to keep enough energy for 100% electric driving over the final 10 or 20 kilometres of a journey, or to have a battery that’s fully charged.

As with other DS Automobiles electric models, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 comes with two charging cables (regular mode 2 for occasional charging at a standard plug and 7.4kW mode 3 for charging the battery from 0 to 100% in just 1h45 at a wall box). All this can be controlled through an app or on the 12-inch screen in the middle of the dashboard. It is also possible to program or start pre-warming remotely. 

To upgrade drivability, the Advanced Traction Control option is available. 

Exceptionally well equipped
As standard, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 has damping controlled by DS ACTIVE SCAN SUSPENSION. A camera behind the windscreen, as well as four attitude sensors and three accelerometers, analyse the kind of road and conditions (speed, steering wheel angle, braking etc…) to transmit data instantly to a computer which controls each wheel independently. According to this information, it continuously makes the suspension firmer or softer. 

Comfort is also enhanced by sound proofing. Already helped by the electric motor’s quietness and by the special lightweight design of the chassis, DS 7 CROSSBACK also benefits from laminated glass as standard, front and rear, in order to limit noise from outside.

DS CONNECTED PILOT Level 2 autonomous driving, DS DRIVER ATTENTION MONITORING, DS NIGHT VISION and DS PARK PILOT are also available and DS ACTIVE LED VISION is standard from PERFORMANCE Line + trim upwards

DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 is available in BUSINESS and EXECUTIVE specification for companies, as well as SO CHIC, PERFORMANCE Line, PERFORMANCE Line + and GRAND CHIC. The complete range of DS Inspirations is available: BASTILLE, PERFORMANCE Line, PERFORMANCE Line with leather seats, Pearl Grey RIVOLI, Basalt Black RIVOLI, Alezan Brown OPERA and Art Basalt Black OPERA.

As standard, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 225 gets 19” LONDON Diamond Black alloy wheels. 20” wheels are an option.
