DS E-TENSE PERFORMANCE received a new accolade, exclusively for electrified vehicles, at the GQ Car Awards, after receiving the Richard Mille 2022 Chantilly Art & Elegance Innovation Award. Designed as a high-performance laboratory, this concept car is intended to accelerate the development of technologies for DS Automobiles' next creations.

After winning the Teams and Drivers titles two years running in Formula E, DS Performance has designed and developed DS E-TENSE PERFORMANCE.


This concept car is based on a carbon shell, a dual 600kW (815hp) electric motor and a four-wheel drive system. During its first test campaign, DS E-TENSE PERFORMANCE has already covered more than 1,800 miles and recorded a 0 to 62 mph time of 2.0 seconds! The chassis, engine and battery present innovative solutions, tested to feed the development of future generations of 100% electric E-TENSE production models.
