ADIGO INSIGHT – E-MOTORSPORT

New challenges in motorsport

Every year, confidence in internal combustion engines decreases when improvements in the performance of battery and electric motor technology achieve potential equality. This new comparison also means that the trend for motorsport chooses the more environmentally friendly alternative and at the same time you get a different type of fast-paced experience.

Although most motorsport fans are not yet ready to switch petrol to battery cells, but it is now impossible to ignore the large amount of new and exciting racing events that use all the electric power. Electric propulsion offers enormous development potential in motorsport and can inspire people to choose more innovative electric propulsion.

The environmental pressure has led to the introduction of smaller, more efficient, turbocharged engines in the competition arenas, while hybrid and all-electric vehicles are also increasing sharply. Over the past year, all rechargeable vehicles have increased by 33% in Sweden and has passed the amount by 137000 vehicles compared to the global amount of 7,5M BEV (Batterydriven) and PHEV (Hybrid) increase of 31%, where China represents almost half of it.

Today’s championships are divided into four categories

Todays investors
The largest investments today in e-motorsport are made in Formula E. Partly through the major motor manufacturers and other sponsors but also in collaboration with the UN’s environmental program. It will increase awareness of air pollution and the benefits of electrical mobility when competing in the heart of some of the world’s most iconic cities across five continents, which also gives a wider audience. Most of the drivers has started to compete with a fuel vehicle and experience that the electric motors provide more power and a different type of challenge.

Among many experienced drivers, the Swedish Grandmaster Mattias Ekström has been elected ambassador to participate in CUPRA e-racing. After a career dedicated to the racing world where he investigated all internal combustion engine formats, he now wants to move to electric racing, which has been his goal in this segment since its creation.

Can e-motorsport be sustainable in the long run?
Let us imagine that we can keep all the attractions that make cars and motorcycle races a unique experience but without polluting fossil fuels and with much lower noise levels. At the same time be able to attract investment and research in technology and ultimately produce the same adrenaline, controlled risk and speed challenges.

Will the desire for range meet the needs of the future?
One of the greatest consumer concerns regarding electric vehicles is the distance they can travel on a single charge, as suggested by respondents to surveys made in Europe. Today however, the Tesla Roadstar can already exceed 1000 km and as battery technology continues to improve, the projected average range of electric vehicles is expected to reach up to 450 km by 2030 compared to today’s approximately 300 km.

How does the future of e-motorsport look?
E-motorsports are far developed but not yet near the finish line and will certainly become more common in the future as fuel-powered competitions decrease as emission requirements become increasingly stricter. Many new types of racing vehicles are being developed and are now tested for approval, such as go-karting and motocross. The sponsors are keen to be involved and show their support for the development.

Adigo are eager to help you choose the most suitable products for your project, depending on demands set by the application. Since efficiency is key in most battery-powered vehicles can we offer high performance motors in different sizes and powers.
