The luxury sub-brand Citroen – DS – revealed the design of the Aero Sport Lounge concept model, which will be shown at the Geneva auto show on March 3. The novelty is an electric crossover with a coupe-shaped body, a 680-horsepower unit from a Formula E car and unusual materials in the cabin.

The length of the cross is 5 meters, and the sloping roof is not so much a tribute to modern trends, but an element thought out from the point of view of aerodynamics. In front is a false radiator grille of complex shape, which is needed for the redistribution of air flows. The show car is also equipped with 23-inch wheels.

The interior is finished with woven 3-component microfibre and a straw marketer from Lison de Caunes atelier, which uses 17th-century technology for processing.

 Information about the trip is displayed using the projection on the windshield, and functions can be controlled both using gestures and voice, interacting with the Iris virtual assistant.

The power unit of the Aero Sport Lounge is based on the technologies used on the DS Techeetah race car, which is participating in Formula E races. The prototype is equipped with a 680-horsepower electric motor powered by a 110 kW / h battery. On a single charge, the cross can cover a distance of 650 km. Until the first “hundred”, the concept accelerates in 2.8 seconds.

 The manufacturer Aero Sport Lounge calls the “prelude to the next creations.” That is, the conceptual model is designed to show the further development of the DS range as a whole and electric cars as well.
