DS3 Electrum EV
DS Automobile DS3 Electrum EV first introduced at the 2012 Paris Auto Show and later at the EV Japan show in 2013. The concept vehicle had no release schedule. In 2015 the parent company of Peugeot, Citroën and DS entered into a cooperation agreement with Dongfeng of China to develop the CMP platform (Common Modular Platform) for smaller vehicles, which would allow the inclusion of a fully electric drivetrain.
