Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Were you aware that you have two choices for charging your DS 3 E-Tense? You can use either a standard wall plug or a charging station. However, while on the road, public charging can only be performed using a charging station as a wall socket will not suffice. The speed at which your EV charges is determined by the kind of charging station or EVSE you use, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. Check out the chart below to see all of the available charging options for your DS 3 E-Tense, as well as the estimated time required to charge the battery from empty to full.


Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can differ from country to country. Some European countries heavily depend on 1-phase connections to the grid, while others primarily use a 3-phase connection. The table below illustrates all the available charging methods for a DS 3 E-Tense. However, specific charging modes may not be accessible in some countries. It is advised to check with local electric vehicle charging networks to determine which options are available to you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Fast charging is essential for increasing the range of your journey by quickly adding an optimal amount of distance. Once the battery reaches 80% of its capacity, the charging power will decrease. This means that a conventional fast charge usually stops at 80% capacity. The speed at which an electric vehicle can charge depends on the charging station used and the maximum charging power of the EV. The table below provides a complete guide for fast charging the DS 3 E-Tense.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point 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%
