It answers a very contemporary problem: how the latest in efficiency can exist without giving up character and strong design.

New legislation decrees a redefinition of the shape and environmental impact of every vehicle.

DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE is a unique answer to a variety of challenges.

With DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE, DS Automobiles is bringing a new shape of car to life. Welcoming as well as distinguished, restrained as well as generous, intelligent as well as poetic, this concept car previews our future. Through its proportions and body shape, DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE directs the airflow to optimise aerodynamic efficiency. Its length (5.00 metres) and its steeply raked roof line reduce drag and the air is directed from the front grille to the side aero details by passing through large 23 inch wheels their design shape being influenced by the air.

The outline is characterised by the signature E-TENSE lighting, symbolic of the 500Kw (680hp) electric motor linked to a 110kWh new generation battery located in the floor for a range greater than 400-miles (650km). This technology, a legacy of the titles won in Formula E, gives breath-taking acceleration from 0 to 62mph (100kph) in just 2.8 seconds.

The grille becomes a screen around the badge and illuminated DS AUTOMOBILES lettering. There are hidden eyes behind the composite material’s window: sensors read the road and feed computers with terabytes of information. On either side, DS MATRIX LED VISION projector headlights are joined by daytime running lights and DS LIGHT VEIL, illuminated sheets that preview the future DS signature.

The first premium brand to take part in Formula E, DS Automobiles was named champion with Jean-Éric Vergne (Drivers) and DS TECHEETAH (Teams). Taking part in Formula E is key to accelerating research and development into the electric vehicles that are revolutionising the car industry. In four seasons, the race wins and titles achieved, against the strongest competition ever seen in an FIA-certified championship, have enabled the Brand to enrich its expertise in electrification. DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE draws from this knowledge.

Travel becomes art
The automotive revolution is also underway in cockpits. Using its history and reference points, DS Automobiles has reinvented the interior to create a machine to travel in. Screens, which play a prominent part in most concept and production cars, are no longer at the forefront.

In front of the occupants, two wide strips create a suspended shape. The lower strip, clad in satin cotton, displays information projected from the top strip. The surface is brought to life with the necessary elements of navigation or finding and sharing new types of infotainment. The fusion of information and entertainment comes into its own by doing away with the constraints of touchpads.

On either side, the screens provide digital mirrors and the group of controls needed for configuration and comfort. As in a first-class setting, each occupant has their own screen. The elements necessary for driving are projected onto the windscreen with augmented reality.

Between the seats, the central armrest acts as a guide. It reads, interprets and answers every hand gesture. As a result of a technical partnership with Ultraleap, a start-up based in Silicon Valley, DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE previews future interactions in cockpits. By combining Leap Motion and Ultrahaptics, the hand makes a gesture and receives a sensory answer. Sensors detect each movement and tiny speakers pulse a wave which feels like something solid.

Continuously simplified for greater peace of mind, methods of interacting with the environment are a difficult balance, from a world that’s totally online to a desire to disconnect. DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE distorts time. The ratio of time varies depending on whether you want to concentrate on driving, having fun or endlessly travelling.

IRIS, DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE’s artificial intelligence, is situated at the centre of the dashboard to control everything with simple conversation.
