In it New SD 3 New design and assembly processes were implemented, with the aim of maximizing the quietness of driving inside, as well as improving safety. New component welding technique offers increased rigidity by 30%, while bolted components are increased by 10% and replace bonded components, while special materials are used between joints to help minimize friction, thereby that eliminates unwanted noise in the cabin. At the same time, it is the only car in its category. standard rear side airbags (chest) in addition to the roof (head) airbags.

Finally, the use of innovative materials, such as very high-strength steel and aluminum composites combined with the use of compact, high-performance powertrains (known as “reduced”) help reduce vehicle weight. As a result he northeo SD 3 has a reduced environmental footprint, reduced fuel consumption and improved drag coefficient (-5 to -8dm2) compared to its predecessor.

new exterior design

Engines: E-TENSE technology

since its creation DS Automobiles In 2014, electrification is a firm priority for the brand, which is evidenced by its participation in the Formula-E championship starting in the 2015-2016 season. All the knowledge gained from DS Automobiles’ involvement in Formula E was used to create the northnew SD 3 myTENSE.

He New SD 3 myTENSE It is the first Stellantis Group model to feature a powerful new battery, with a capacity of 54kWh (useful capacity 50.8kWh), with a new chemical composition that significantly improves energy density (220 litres, energy density record). At the same time, liquid circulation thermal management and the heat pump allow the battery to be recharged quickly, optimizing autonomy and increasing useful life. The new battery can be recharged from 0 to 80% in 25 minutes with a 100 kW DC fast charger, while with an 11 kW AC 3-phase wallbox it can be fully charged in approximately 5 hours.

In addition, the placement of the new compact battery between the front and rear seats, under the central tunnel and the special construction of the rear axle, allow the New SD 3 myTense maintain all the advantages of internal combustion engine vehicles (comfortable space for rear passengers, large luggage space, identical driving position to internal combustion vehicles, etc.).

At the same time, the new HSM (Hybrid Synchronous Motor), manufactured in Trémery, France by the new joint venture between NIDEC and Stellantis, offers a power of 115 kW (156 hp) and a torque of 260 Nm, immediately available to the driver. and guarantees maximum driving pleasure with zero emissions.

The new battery combined with the aerodynamic optimization increases the autonomy of the vehicle up to 404 kilometers in the WLTP combined cycle, while its driver New SD 3 myTense have at your disposal up to 575 kilometers of autonomy in urban environment (WLTP).

The New DS 3 range is completed with the BlueHDi 130 engine with EAT8 automatic transmission and two PureTech 100 gasoline engines with 6-speed manual transmission and PureTech 130 with EAT8 automatic transmission.
