DS 3. Precautions The electric vehicles have been developed in accordance with the guidelines on the maximum levels for electromagnetic fields issued by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP - 1998 Guidelines).

DS 3. Precautions If in doubt

Domestic or accelerated charging: do not remain inside or near the vehicle, or near the charging cable or charging unit, even for a short time.

Superfast charging: do not use the system yourself and avoid approaching public fast charging points. Leave the area and ask a third party to recharge the vehicle.

For domestic or accelerated charging

DS 3. Precautions Before charging

Depending on the context:

  • Have a professional check that the electrical system to be used complies with applicable standards and is compatible with the vehicle.
  • Have a professional electrician install a dedicated domestic power socket or accelerated charging unit (Wallbox) compatible with the vehicle.

You should preferably use the charging cable available as an accessory.

For more information, contact a dealer or a qualified workshop.

DS 3. Precautions (During charging)

While charging is in progress, unlocking the vehicle will cause the charging to stop.

If no action is taken on one of the openings (door or boot) or on the charging nozzle, the vehicle will lock again after 30 seconds and charging will resume automatically.

Never work under the bonnet:

  • Some areas remain very hot, even an hour after charging ends - risk of burns!
  • The fan may start at any time - risk of cuts or strangulation!

DS 3. Precautions After charging

Check that the charging flap is closed.

Do not leave the cable connected to the domestic power socket - risk of short-circuit or electrocution in the event of contact with or immersion in water!

For superfast charging

DS 3. Precautions Before charging

Check that the fast public charging station and its charging cable are compatible with the vehicle.

If the exterior temperature is below:

  • 0°C, charging times may be extended.
  • -20°C, charging is still possible, but charging times may be extended even further (the battery has to be heated first).

DS 3. Precautions After charging

Check that the charging flap is closed.
