Electric rally car debuts with 544 horsepower!
- 6th November 2016, 9:58pm
Manfred Stohl demonstrated a special electric competition rally car at the Austrian Race of Champions at Greinbach on the weekend.
Using a converted Peugeot rally car, this vehicle was fitted with a standard 544bhp electric motor and represents the start of a three-year development project with the University of Vienna.
Future versions are to be fitted with four engines, each coupled to a wheel, with a total of 1000bhp being envisaged.
This launch came the week that Volkswagen announced they were about to explore new technologies in competition.
