DS reveal dream for 2035: DS X E-TENSE
DS have revealed their dream car for 2035: DS X E-TENSE, a car of incomparable refinement.
The DS Automobiles answer to the car of the future has resulted in DS X E-TENSE: a breathtakingly beautiful car, that is sensuous and inspiring, in the same way as the original DS which caught the motoring public’s imagination off-guard eight decades before 2035.
DS X E-TENSE combines new forms, materials and technologies to produce a vehicle that epitomises luxury on four wheels in the future.
A RADICALLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE – the cockpit features only one seat, which adapts perfectly to a driver’s build, like the seats seen in racing. The reclined position helps to keep the car’s centre of gravity low
A SOOTHING COCOON – the passenger sits enclosed in a clear glass cocoon, snug in a ventilated, massaging seat. Travelling with the autonomous mode engaged is an exceptional experience as other senses than touch come into play, including enjoyment of the hi-fidelity sound bar that forms the ‘dashboard’.
INSPIRED TECHNOLOGIES - Located within the front wheels, the two motors selected as the source of the all-electric DS X E-TENSE’s power provide unrivalled response. For road use, peak power stands at 400kW (540 horsepower), a figure that rises to 1,000kW (1,360 horsepower) in ‘circuit’ mode which allows the driver to savour the exquisite performance of the suspension engineered by DS Performance, the technical team behind DS’s Formula E programme.
