(VIDEO) Geneva 2016, E-Tense, Citroen DS' avantgarde is an electric sportscar

26/02/2016

A few days before the opening of the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, Citroën creates the surprise with a concept of electric sports GT that sits DS in a sporty and electric direction!

 

 

We remember the impressive DS Survolt and it took more than 5 years to DS to present a car that gets closer to a model that we could see on our roads ...
Nonetheless, this E-Tense is inspired by the Survolt with more conventional proportions, 4.72m long and 1.29m high, the lines are very sharp, sculptural! The designers have even sacrificed the rear window to let their creativity free, and fitted a digital mirror. 

 


On the specifications side, the DS E-Tense embarks 53kWh of battery with only 1800kg thanks to a carbon construction! So with 402hp and 516nm, the 0 to 100kph takes only 4.5secondes for a range varying from 310km in combined cycle to 360km in urban cycle!


This DS E-Tense is also very patriotic and proud of French craftsmanship with partnership with BRM, Focal, Moynat ...
It is less supercar than the R8 e-tron or SLS Electric and more a competitor to the BMW i8 but in full electric and with more power! For now, Citroën announces no release date or price but we would like to see this racy Citroën E-Tense on our roads!


With the e-Mehari by Courreges, Citroën at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 will be under the sign of electric power.
