Citroen's DS E-Tense Looks Even More Intense When Seen Up Close


Maybe we will actually get these DS models in the US!

Citroen is rumored to be returning to the US market with its new DS brand of luxury vehicles. The DS was once one of the most luxurious cars in the world, and is still a luxury icon. DS is now a Citroen sub-brand and the E-Tense one of its concepts. It features an all-electric powertrain that produces 402 horsepower and 381 lb-ft of torque. It can reportedly get from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.5 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. Those are some pretty good figures for an electric car that isn't a Tesla Model S.

As you might have guessed this thing looks absolutely amazing in the metal. While the press photos looked good this concept is a whole other (and much better) story entirely when seen live. With a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, the car weighs 3,968 pounds which is not bad for an electric car. While it may be a long time before we start to see any new French cars on American roads, this concept shows us what we are missing in the meantime.
