The most premium marque developed by the PSA Groupe, France (owners of the brand Peugeot, Citroen, Vauxhall and Opel), the brand is called simply DS. This brand made by DS Automobiles was first announced in the summer of 2009, when the PSA management (more popularly known as Groupe Renault) felt that they need to revive the magical word DS (Déesse) which means Goddess in French. The DS was a famous car model brand for Citroen in the 60s and 70s (the first car in automotive history to have disc brakes).
Some say that the current DS stands for Distinctive Series.
The DS made E-Tense is an electric sports car that has two Siemens made motors that generate a power of 400 Kw (540 HP) and after flicking a switch can give up to 1000 Kw (1360 HP). The car can run to a top speed of 250 km/hr.
With a single charge, this car can easily run for over 350 km and it is made possible because of the large amount of carbon fibre used. Everything about this car is unique – her asymmetric design, the use of leather, metal and wood for the steering wheel, blue aniline leather as interiors, differently designed gull-wing doors, etc.
Inside the car, the passenger and the driver gets a feeling that is quite unique – filtered air that is scented to let the driver experience refinement and freshness throughout the drive.
