DS E-TENSE FE19, born to win

DS E-TENSE FE19 is the second-generation single seater from DS Performance. It’s the result of many months of development and testing conducted on the race track as well as in the simulator. Our engineers have developed a new powertrain with an output of 250kW or 338hp. Completely reimagined from a technical point of view, the new motor is paired with an optimised energy recuperation system. 

Thanks to its 100% electric 338hp motor, DS E-TENSE FE19 boasts lightning acceleration – it goes from 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds compared with 3.7 seconds for our previous car DSV-03 – and can reach a maximum speed of 230km/h.

The new aerodynamic shape of the car and the absence of a rear wing makes this new kind of single seater look like no other. It also features HALO, the extra cockpit protection now fitted to all FIA championship single seaters. At the heart of this new type of racing car, DS Performance has come up with a completely redesigned powertrain.
