Make This Now, Citroen!

As seen in the latest Geneva International Motor Show, the Europeans are truly capable of making some INSANE looking cars. We recently saw the release of the 1500 horsepower Bugatti Chiron, the rebranded Gumpert showing up as the Apollo Arrow, The super crazy Lamborghini Centenario, and we also saw the reveals of some European mainstays such as the Aston Martin DB11 and the Porsche 911R.

This isn’t the first time Geneva has revealed some truly crazy cars. Back in 2010, the Geneva International Motor show was the venue for the reveal of Citroen’s own pure electric vehicle concept, the Citroen Survolt. This concept was a 2 door all-wheel drive sports car concept that utilized a pair of mid mounted electric motors, producing a power output of 300 brake horsepower, which was good for a 0-62 mph of less than 5 seconds.

The Peugeot Citroen’s spinoff brand, DS, has revealed the DS E-Tense recently at the 2016 Geneva show. However, it looks like a much larger version of the Citroen Survolt. We are not certain whether the E-Tense is the evolution of the Survolt or if they are potentially separate products. Whatever they may be, Citroen/DS needs to make them soon, and let the Americans have it. We are totally jealous. Check it out in action against another electric vehicle, the Agni Z2 motorcycle:
