Benefitting from the latest electric technologies and the renewal of almost all parts, the powertrain developed by DS Performance, the racing department of DS Automobiles, on behalf of DS TECHEETAH, represents a big technological ‘step forward’. Equipped with an engine, a gearbox and an inverter that have significantly evolved, the DS E-TENSE FE21 will have a performance level much higher than its predecessor. The new powertrain, a true technological showcase for DS Automobiles, has been homologated for 2 years and will aim at leading the DS TECHEETAH team towards a third double title in Formula E.
