You may have never seen Citroen's DS 3, but it's one of the most popular cars in Europe. When the company (actually a new, separate brand called DS) unveiled a crossover version called the DS 3 Crossback, it also announced plans to sell an electric version called the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense.

When you go to an auto show, electric cars are everywhere, but there are only a few affordable models for sale right now in France, including the Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe and soon, the Tesla Model 3. Unlike Kia's e-Niro, the DS 3 will enter that market with a modest WLPT Euro-spec range of 300 km (186 miles) thanks to the 50 kWh battery.

That's mated with a humble 100 kW (136 horsepower) motor, which will accelerate you to 100 KMPH (62 MPH) in a leisurely 8.7 seconds.
