Formula E & DS E-TENSE

Formula E & DS E-TENSE

The all-electric DS E-TENSE unveiled by PSA Group at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show (see live photos), is one of those few concepts that actually drives.

PSA's premium arm DS is now presenting the E-TENSE wherever possible.  Most recently on the occasion of the Formula E events from Paris in France and in the UK (as well as at the Goodwood Festival).

Apparently, that's how you promote the brand while you are also engaged in the racing team (via DS Virgin Racing) and Sir Richard Branson apparently.

Hopefully DS will soon introduce production models with an electric drive. In the meantime we can watch the E-TENSE on the streets of Paris or on the track (check videos above and below).

Quick spec:

  • 402hp (around 300 kW) and 516 Nm of torque
  • 0-100 km/h (62 mph) comes up in 4.5 seconds
  • an expected 310 km (193 miles) mixed cycle range (360 km or 224 miles range in an urban cycle)
