German car manufacturer Opel has made what it claims is the world's first all-electric rally car, which is based on the carmaker's first electric vehicle.
Opel plans on making 15 of the rally cars, specifically for the 2020 to 2021 ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup, according to Roadshow. The electric vehicle rally cup, which is the first of its kind, brings together around 100 young drivers from 18 countries to race with electric drives, according to President ADAC Sport Hermann Tomczyk in a prepared statement.
It is important for racing to embrace and research new technologies because it helps improve and refine designs that are used in productions vehicles we will use daily.
