At the beginning of February, DS presented the E-Tense Performance electric concept car. It was a very high performance model, developed by drawing heavily on Formula E technology. A car also seen as a & quot; laboratory & quot; in which to experiment with technologies that, in the future, will find a place on the new battery-powered cars of the French brand. Furthermore, the concept also anticipated some stylistic choices that we will see shortly.
ONLY FOR THE TRACK
Apparently, this concept could result in a limited edition car . This is serious; as stated by the CEO B & eacute; atrice Foucher at Autocar on the occasion of the London E-Prix. A definitive decision, however, is not; still been taken. However, if you proceed; in this direction, the car will not be approved for road use but it will be made only for racing on the track. Therefore, it will be; interesting to understand over time if DS will decide & agrave; really to make a small series production of this electric supercar for the track. People's satisfaction with the concept is; was very high and this could help push the brand to develop a series model.
The specifications declared by DS for the E-Tense Performance concept were very interesting. In fact, it was reported that the powertrain consisted of 2 electric motors. Overall, there was 600 kW/815 hp available(250 kW at the front and 350 kW at the rear). The units & agrave; used were strictly derived from those used in Formula E.
Also very interesting l & Aspect that concerned energy recovery. In fact, the concept of the electric supercar is; able to offer a capacity; of regeneration up to 600 kW , just like in the new Gen 3. Compared to the new Formula E single-seaters, however, & egrave; a traditional braking system is present.
Could these characteristics also be found in the possible car to be produced in a small series? Possible, given that the CEO reiterated that the car would have the latest solutions derived from Formula E. All that remains is to wait to see if DS really will bring; forward this project and if in the future it will come a production version of that electric supercar.
