Extreme E has joined forces with motorsport manufacturer
Spark Racing Technology will create and construct the common package with strict specification
parts, before handing over the homologated framework to each team – allowing competitors to test
and develop their own powertrain and bodywork.
The standardised parts produced by Spark Racing Technology consist of the tubular steel frame,
suspension and dampers, braking and steering system – as well as crash structure and roll cage. The
components open for development are focussed on the motor and inverter and select areas of
exterior bodywork, such as the engine cover, side skirt, lights and front and rear bumpers.
Prototype testing is scheduled to take place in July this year together with founding partner
Continental Tyres, with the teams receiving the first delivery of 12 cars from Spark Racing
Technology in March 2020. Teams will later have the opportunity to put the Extreme E cars through
their paces with collective group testing in the summer, before hopping on board the newlyrenovated
RMS St. Helena for the first race in January 2021.
Alejandro Agag, Founder & CEO of Formula E – operating partner of Extreme E – said:
“Starting the production and build process for a car is always special and a defining moment
when getting a new series off the ground. I’m glad to be once again taking this journey
together with Spark Racing Technology – just as we did for Formula E. Working with trusted
partners and people like Theo and the team at Spark allow us to drive forward with
preparations and offer race-ready cars to the teams, before giving them the freedom to
develop their own components. I can’t wait to see the prototype in action and the first public
demonstration this summer. Keep your eyes peeled for more news coming from Extreme E in
the coming weeks.”
Theophile Gouzin, Technical Director of Spark Racing Technology, said:
“Spark is thrilled to engineer the all-new electric SUV for Extreme E. Our team is privileged to
be co-pioneering this new competition focussed on e-mobility. Spark sees Extreme E as
forward-thinking and a true engineering challenge – the ultimate proving ground for electric
Denise Ewald, Director R&D Passenger & Light Truck Tires at Continental, said:
