After it separated from its mother brand, DS Automobiles is using this year Geneva Motor Show to anticipate its electric ambitions. The DS brand unveiled today the E-Tense concept, a supercar that, if produced, will be rivalling the current Audi R8 e-tron. 

It has a silhouette of a grand tourer coupe emphasised by a central chrome-plated spine and an exclusive metallic green ametrine body colour. The French car company removed the rear windscreen at the back, giving the design team a huge amount of freedom to mould its contours and make use of digital rear-view technology.

For the car’s interior DS upholsterers took 800 hours to design, test and produce the cockpit, with particular emphasis on the upgraded watchstrap style design on the seats and dashboard. Other noteworthy features include the cold steel used for the dashboard, creating a futuristic look, and the tulip-shape of the steering wheel. Bespoke accessories have been created in collaboration with French luxury brands.
 
There is a one-off edition watch by BRM Chronographers, that it can be worn on the wrist or affixed to the car’s central console. The case is angled at 90° so that the time is viewable while driving. For an exclusive experience, 9 Focal Utopia loudspeakers transform the interior of the DS E-Tense into an auditorium.

DS Automobiles has equipped its latest creation with a 100% electric 402 hp engine that produces 516 Nm of torque. The lithium ion battery adds 310km mixed cycle range (or 360km urban cycle). The lithium-ion batteries are situated under the car’s chassis, which keeps the centre of gravity low and enables even torque distribution between the axles.
