Audi launch first Formula E challenger

Audi launch first Formula E challenger”

Audi has unveiled their first all-electric race vehicle at Neuburg.

Audi revealed its first factory-entered Formula E auto for the 2017/2018 season on Wednesday and gave it the e-tron name previously used on its LMP1 entry.

"Together with our technology partner Schaeffler, we have developed a completely new powertrain", said Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass.

Formula E teams are allowed to develop the motor, transmission, suspension elements and software, with all of the chassis being developed by Dallara and Spark Racing Technology. The engineers primarily focus on designing the motor-generator unit for ever greater efficiency. A single gear transmission is also used to transmit the power to the wheels. "You can immediately tell this by looking at the new carbon housing of the powertrain".

The livery is also different from previous year, as the green, yellow and red paintwork has been replaced by a predominantly white and green look with driver designation at the top of the vehicle.

It has joined forces with the Abt motorsport family and electric mobility specialist Schaeffler to form Team Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler, with former works Audi endurance racer Allan McNish as team principal and drivers Lucas di Grassi (33) - the reigning Formula E champion and also a current Audi endurance racer - and 24-year-old Daniel Abt, son of team founder Hans-Jurgen Abt.

The Audi Formula E team also showed their new livery, featuring white, metallic green and black. Abt's auto will feature additional red livery to help distinguish it from di Grassi's. The Scotsman had already accompanied and supported the team throughout the last season. Called, the e-tron FE04, Audi has brought back the "e-tron" nameplate from their now defunct LMP1 program on to their Formula E racer. After that it will be at the test sessions in Valencia, Spain for FE pre-season testing.
