The all-electric DS E-Tense sports car could be one step closer to production, after parent company PSA Groupe (formerly PSA Peugeot Citroen) filed an application to trademark its name this week.

Britain's Autocar reports that PSA's luxury arm filed the application this week, in preparation for its halo model to arrive around the turn of the decade - likely between 2018 and 2021.

The company even took to the streets of Paris in the bright green concept last year to gauge the public's reception to the boldly-styled coupe.


First revealed at last year's Geneva motor show, the DS E-Tense is an all-electric sports concept, powered by an electric drive system developing 300kW of power and 516Nm of torque.

It can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 250km/h. Meanwhile, DS claims the E-Tense can achieve an all-electric driving range of around 310km between charges.
