Formula E Electric Racing Car Unveiled

The evolution of electric vehicle racing is taking a big leap forward with the unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show of the Spark-Renault SRT_01E single seater racer. It is at the heart of the planned inaugural FIA Formula E Championship – the world’s first global electric race series beginning in September 2014.

A consortium of leading manufacturers are behind the technology in the SRT_01E, according to Formula E officials. The car’s monocoque chassis has been constructed

by leading Italian firm Dallara and has been aerodynamically designed to aid overtaking. Made from carbon fibre and aluminium, the chassis will fully comply with the 2014 FIA crash tests.

Providing the electric motor, gearbox and electronics is McLaren Electronics Systems, the world leader in high- performance technology for motorsport. Williams Advanced Engineering, part of the Williams group of companies that includes the world famous Williams F1 Team, is responsible for the design and supply of the batteries and their battery management systems; producing 200kw (the equivalent of 270bhp).
