Opel’s latest rally car, the Corsa-e, has been unveiled and will be used in the 2020 Opel e-Rally Cup.
The battery in the Corsa-e will supply power for 60km of competition.
These electric one-make series cars will have 136bhp engines giving 260 Newton metres torque.
Initially the new Cup will be run as part of the German Rally Championship and selected other events, starting in the northern hemisphere summer in 2020, going into 2021 and 15 cars are being prepared.
The most successful drivers will then compete in new Opel Corsa R2 cars in the FIA’s Junior European Rally Championship.
Meanwhile, in New Zealand, WRC rally driver Hayden Paddon is preparing a special high performance 800bhp electric version Hyundai Kona car.
Paddon's car is in association with the Austrian company, Stard, which has worked on electric car rallycross projects.
