Citroen's performance brand, DS, brought a new concept to the Geneva auto show, the E-Tense.

DS became a stand-alone brand last year.

Although the E-Tense has a grille, it doesn't have an engine. Instead, the E-Tense uses an electric drivetrain.

DS notes that the E-Tense's lithium-ion battery pack is integrated in the car's floor, while the electric motor sits at the rear axle.

The electric drivetrain produces 402 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, giving the car a range of 200 miles.

A carbon-fiber body keeps the car light, helping its range.

The small E-Tense only has room for two passengers.

The lack of a rear window would certainly compromise visibility, although as a concept it really doesn't matter.

Despite the electric drivetrain, the E-Tense shows many air intakes, likely to cool batteries and brakes.

Vents at the front fenders have a very complex look.

The smooth top gives the E-Tense a distinct style.

As the electric motor would not take up much room in the rear, there would likely be luggage space under this canopy.

The rear of the E-Tense shows a carbon fiber diffusor, hinting at its sports car performance.

The black and green interior echoes the exterior look.

Paddles at the steering wheel suggest multiple regeneration modes for the electric drivetrain.
