DS Automobiles, which has contested the FIA Formula E Championship since the 2015/2016 campaign, will be the competition's only French FIA-approved constructor in Season 5 (2018/2019) when a new generation of all-electric single-seater racing cars will go head-to-head for the very first time. DS Automobiles is proud to present its latest all-electric Formula E challenger, DS E-TENSE FE 19. The efficient technology developed by DS Automobiles' competition arm DS Performance has already harvested four victories and 10 podium finishes on four continents over a period spanning less than three years. At the same time, the knowhow accrued in racing is accelerating the development of DS Automobiles' range of electrified cars and all the brand's models will feature plug-in hybrid or all-electric variants in the future. Visitors to DS World in Paris, France (33 rue François 1er) will be treated to an avant-premiere viewing of DS E-TENSE FE 19 when it goes on display finished in an exclusive matt black and gold livery on March 7, 2018.
