This is the future of DS Automobile’s sports cars

If you look at the price list for DS Automobiles, you will see the term E-tense. This is the name of the plug-in versions, both plug-in hybrid and fully electric. However, if you search for E-tense on the internet, you will also see different survey models of sports cars. Will they be on the price list soon?

“No,” is the short but firm answer from DS Automobile’s top woman Beatrice Foucher. “First and foremost, this is not the brand’s territory. Why did we build those cars anyway? For example, the second edition. The car shows that we have the skills and competencies in electrification. With the study models, we have prototypes with which we can test the electric driveline. We therefore build the survey models together with the people who work on the production cars, so that the information obtained is immediately usable. ”

Models DS Automobiles have a message

DS Automobiler only cares about the knowledge that the manufacturer acquires with electrical engineering. “It’s about electrification, not about sportiness. A good driveline, in this case fully electric, is important for a premium brand. “Foucher indicates that the survey models still have a message.” We also show that we remain loyal to Formula E. “DS has participated in that race class for several The cars are all electrically powered.

Super potent two-person

DS Automobiles was established as an independent brand in 2014. Less than two years later, the manufacturer presented a concept car of a sports coupe. The two-seater was named the E-tense Concept. Below its striking stylized body is a 296 kW electric motor, which generates a torque of 516 Nm. With this driveline, the sports coupe is 4.5 seconds from standstill at 100 km / h. The 4.72 m long, 2.08 m wide and 1.29 m high coupe with a top speed of 250 km / h should reach a range of 360 km.

Only about six years later, the DS study model continues by presenting E-Tense Performance. The addition Performance indicates the electric car’s more powerful power plant. It has two motors, one of 250 kW on the front axle and one of 350 kW on the rear axle. It runs 0-100 km / h in two seconds. DS Automobiles again does not comment on the battery capacity.

DS X E-tense Concept

It does not stop with the duo, who have the same design style. Meanwhile, in 2018, to be precise, DS Automobiles will present yet another survey model of a sports car. This time, the manufacturer chooses to express the brand’s design language through the concept car. Although the design is emphasized, the driveline also has a message. The electric motors come from the Formula E race car of the time. Hear and see more about the eccentric DS X E-tense in the video below:
