- ABB will supply chargers to Formula E from the 2022/23 season
- Formula E’s new Gen3 rules will see the introduction of rapid charging
- ABB is working on a charging solution that will be able to charge two cars simultaneously
Formula E’s Gen3 cars, which will be introduced from the 2022/23 season, will use bespoke chargers provided by Swiss technology major ABB. This move sees the company further reinforce its partnership with the all-electric racing series; it’s been the series’ title partner since 2018 and is also the official partner of the Porsche Formula E team.
As per the new technical brief, Formula E’s Gen3 cars will be 120kg lighter and will also receive a power boost to 350kW (up from the current 250kW maximum power). The new rules will also see the introduction of rapid charging, which could lead to the return of mid-race pit stops.
