HSV launches upgraded 2011 E-Series 3 Range

Just a few days after the launch of the new 2011 Grange, Holden Special Vehicles has gone a step further and announced details of its entire 2011 HSV E-Series 3 range.

The HSV range received styling upgrades last year with the arrival of the E-Series 2 vehicles, the new E-Series 3 range focuses more on technical and interior upgrades.

The new line-up consists of the ClubSport R8, ClubSport R8 Tourer, Maloo R8, Senator Signature, Grange and GTS. There is no longer a place for the entry-level GXP vehicle and there’s no plans for a new entry-level model in the future.

So what’s new for the HSV E Series 3?

Leading the highlight list are three brand new HSV technologies;

– HSV’s new Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI), which streams vehicle performance data directly to the new touch screen display.
– Liquid Propane Injection (LPI) is the first system of its kind on an Australian production car, and is available as an option on all models, except for the Clubsport R8 Tourer.
– HSV’s new Side Blind Zone Alert (SBZA) will be available as an option on every model in the E3 range — and is standard on the Grange.

In addition to technological innovation, HSV has added a significant set of unique interior updates to the E Series 3, including;

– New ‘Oracle’ dash
– New model specific stainless steel ID plate on the centre console
– New twin-stitch seat trims on GTS and Senator Signature, as well as a new leather colour in Turismo Rosso.
– New binnacle gauges
– Piano black trim on the centre console and steering wheel


The final stand-out aspect of the E Series 3 range is a raft of new standard features being offered on all HSV models, specifically;

– Enhanced Driver Interface (EDI)
– Reverse camera with rear park assist
– Satellite navigation
– Touchscreen radio with iPod connectivity

HSV’s Managing Director, Phil Harding, believes the new E3 range has increased it’s level of sophistication and continues the company’s long history of innovation.

“Our E3 range is an example of HSV’s passion for innovation, and determination to bring world leading technology to vehicles,” he said. You only have to look at EDI, LPI, and SBZA to know HSV is passionate about creating and building great all-round performance cars. More and more of our customers are showing greater interest in new technology, and have expressed a desire for unique points of difference in their vehicles. The combination of new technologies, stylish interior improvements, and a continued focus on all-round performance further strengthens HSV’s position as the ultimate in Australian-made performance cars.”

HSV’s new E Series 3 will arrive in Australian showrooms at the end of this month with deliveries to NZ beginning shortly.
