The traditional grille that you will find on a car powered by a combustion engine has been replaced with a screen that lights up around the prominent DS Automobiles logo. Just so you know for sure what you are looking at. Sleek headlights that benefit from LED matrix technology further contribute to the avant-garde look of the concept.
An electric motor that develops a whopping 671 horsepower to allow a 0 to 62 mph (100 km / h). With sprint time in just 2.8 seconds provides the motivation for the polarizing SUV.
