DS Automobiles reveals a new livery for the DS E-TENSE FE23!

Paris, October 9th 2023 - DS Automobiles and PENSKE AUTOSPORT unveil the new DS E-TENSE FE23 livery for Formula E Season 10

  • At the wheel of the two single-seaters developed by DS Performance will be Jean-Eric Vergne, Formula E champion in 2018 and 2019, and Stoffel Vandoorne, world champion in 2022
  • The two DS PENSKE drivers will begin the official pre-season tests in Valencia (Spain) from October 24 to 27

DS Automobiles and PENSKE AUTOSPORT have presented the new DS E-TENSE FE23 livery for Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

This year, the eye-catching single-seater in the all-electric series enhances its brilliance, elegance and visibility by reversing its familiar gold and black colours. As a result, the DS E-TENSE FE23 now boasts a dazzling golden look on the front end, sidepods and entire halo.

Equipped with the same powertrain from Season 9 (as all the power units are homologated for two years) the newly-liveried car remains faithful to the French marque’s traditional colour scheme and the spirit of the team.


The DS E-TENSE FE23 has been developed by DS Performance, focussing on the most advanced electric technology from DS Automobiles.

Jean-Eric Vergne, the only two-time Formula E champion, and 2022 world champion Stoffel Vandoorne will be at the wheel of the two DS E-TENSE FE23 challengers during the official pre-season tests in Valencia (Spain) from October 24 to 27.

The first race of Season 10 will take place in Mexico City on January 13, 2024.

Eugenio Franzetti, DS Performance director:

“As always, the livery reveal is a very exciting moment because it represents the official start of a new adventure, new challenge, and new season! So, we start Season 10 with a new DS E-TENSE FE23 that's even more beautiful than last year’s car. And it’s more visible as well as beautiful, because that's what motorsport is all about. We're here to give visibility to our brand, DS Automobiles, our partner PENSKE AUTOSPORT, and of course all our sponsors. We’re also working hard to ensure that the DS E-TENSE FE23 goes as well as it looks. The powertrain will be the same as for Season 9, as there is no homologation change this year, but a lot of other work has been done and we will continue to improve the management software. We have big dreams of big success : that’s our goal for Season 10!”
