Renault has been at the forefront of the electric automotive sector with its Z.e. range and quirky vehicles like the Twizy. The French manufacturer has been appointed official Technical partner of Formula E, overseeing all systems integration as well as supervising powertrain electrical safety and performance optimisation.
Patrice Ratti - Renault Sport Technologies CEO
“As a global leader in electric vehicle production, and with our unique expertise in motorsports, Renault was the obvious choice of technical partner to develop the SRT_01E for Formula E. Our engineers and motorsport experts have directly contributed to the powertrain architecture and are in charge of the electric systems’ specification and integration.
Renault is also working with Spark to enhance the performance and safety levels of the SRT_01E powertrain. The objective was to design an outstanding race car that would be clean, reliable and safe, as well as fast and responsive. I’m confident that we have achieved just that.”
