FORMULA E E-TENSE: the pursuit of performance

Driven by our avant-garde spirit and the desire to push the limits of innovation, DS Automobiles has been competing in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship since 2015. In just a few years we’ve established ourselves as a global benchmark in the 100% electric category through our E-TENSE technology.


The ABB FIA Formula E world championship sees the best electric vehicles compete in the heart of the most beautiful cities in the world. Our E-TENSE technology has enabled the DS TECHEETAH team and our pilots Jean-Éric Vergne and António Felix Da Costa to win both the driver and team titles during the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

When avant-garde pushes the boundaries

With its 100% electric, 250kW (338 horsepower) motor, DS E-TENSE FE21 has stunning performance. Capable of accelerating from 0 to 60mph in 2.8 seconds, it has a maximum speed of 142mph. It took our teams many months of testing to develop its new powertrain. DS E-TENSE FE21 uses energy in the most efficient way possible with regenerative braking, technology you'll find in our E-TENSE models.
