Energy economy mode

This system manages the duration of use of certain functions, in order to conserve a sufficient level of charge in the battery with the ignition off.

After switching off the engine, you can still use functions such as the audio and telematic system, the wipers and the dipped beam headlamps or courtesy lamps, for a combined duration of approximately 40 minutes.

Selecting the mode

A confirmation message is displayed when energy economy mode is entered, and the active functions are placed on standby.

DS 3. Energy economy mode. Load reduction mode If a telephone call is in progress at the time, it will be maintained for around 10 minutes via the audio system’s hands-free system.

Exiting the mode

These functions are automatically reactivated the next time the vehicle is used.

To restore the use of these functions immediately, start the engine and let it run:

For less than 10 minutes, to use the equipment for approximately 5 minutes.

For more than 10 minutes, to use the equipment for approximately 30 minutes.
