The DS E-Tense | Six Visionary Electric Vehicles Designed with Earth Day in Mind
A truly green grand tourer, the DS E-Tense is an electric-powered, chartreuse coupe that represents the vehicular vision of the DS marque, a relatively new subsidiary of Citroën’s parent company Groupe PSA. Its zero-emissions motor manages to generate 402 hp (with about 380 ft lbs of torque), kicking the car from zero to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph. And the battery enables a range of roughly 185 miles.
The eye-catching cabin includes a steel dashboard, tulip-shaped steering wheel, upholstery that required 800 hours to develop, and a sound system that features nine Focul Utopia speakers. And further accenting the automobile is a helmet harness designed by Moynat, Paris’ leather goods legend—because in France, fashion never takes a backseat. (dsautomobiles.com)
