Citroën’s DS will unveil an all-electric supercar in Geneva this week [Gallery]


French automaker Citroën will unveil an all-electric supercar at Geneva Motor Show this week through its luxury brand DS Automotive.

The new concept is called DS E-TENSE and the company already released a few pictures (see gallery below).

DS Automotive claims the car, which will be powered by a li-ion battery pack, will have a range of about 193 miles (310 km) on a single charge.


  • Dimensions: 4.72 L x 2.08 W x 1.29 H
  • Engine: 100% electric 402 hp
  • Acceleration: 4.5 seconds from 0 to 100 km
  • Range: 360 km (urban cycle) or 310 km (mixed cycle)
  • Maximum torque: 516 Nm
  • Top speed: 250 km/h
  • Weight: 1.8 tons
  • Tyres: MICHELIN Pilot Supersport Front: 245/35 ZR 20 Back: 305 /30 ZR 20
  • 2-wheel drive system
  • Carbon monocoque chassis
  • Sound: Focal Utopia system, ninz loudspeakers, 640W, with a Digital Signal Processor for tuning

The company didn’t reveal when it plans to bring the vehicle to market, if ever, and if it does, it is unlikely it will make it to the US. Nonetheless, the E-TENSE will make its world debut at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show later this week. Here’s a gallery from Citroën:

Side note: It always surprises me when an automaker comes up with a new small electric sport car (or supercar) and it can’t accelerate faster from 0 to 60 mph than Tesla’s large 4-door sedan (or than its SUV for that matter).
