CITROEN DS CONVERTED TO EV

-

Meanwhile, in Britain, EV conversion specialist Electrogen­ic has revealed its own one-off take on a French classic: the Citroën DS.

The DS Électroniq­ue swaps its four-cylinder petrol engine for a 120bhp electric motor, which is powered by a 48.5kwh battery, giving around 140 miles of range.

Only the absence of exhaust pipes gives away the car’s revised mechanical­s, with even the original manual gearbox and ‘selflevell­ing’ hydropneum­atic suspension being retained.
