The difference between Formula E cars has finally been explained

At first sight, Formula E racing cars don't look different a lot – the first thing that you notice is that vehicles are much of the same and the only thing that stands them out is stickers and colors. However, when it comes to the stuff that 'hides' inside of the car, the difference is colossal – there are several different approaches on the inverter/motor/transmission, which could lead to advantages for the driver.

Formula E Championship is by no means one of the most exciting auto racing events.

It is full of danger, excitement, thrills and other things that make a good show.

No wonder that Formula E is more popular than Formula One.

Anyway, we're in here not to talk about Formula E with much fanfare – ok,we are, but that is not the main issue.

As a tradition, automakers reveal all the nitty-gritty details about their vehicles by the end of the season and this time is not an exclusion.

So, let's not waste any more minute and start chewing the fat.

 Formula E racing cars

5887.jpgAs we were mentioning before, Formula E cars are much of the same – strict limitations of the second season is the reason for this.

Nonetheless, teams were able to choose their own transmissions, motors and battery control systems – maybe it is not that much, but at least, it's something– ,so,under the hood the cars are pretty distinctive.

For instance, Renault used the two gear transmission in its e.Dams vehicle(first place) while other automakers stuck to slightly different approachers: Dragon Racing (four gears); ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport (three gears) and DS Virgin Racing Formula E Team (single speed).

Which approach is the best?

It's a moot point since each approach has its own pros and cons: some cars are more stable,some cars are faster,some are safer...

What to choose - it is up to you.

Depending on the team, the cars use anywhere from single to five gear transmissions. In the case of a single reduction gear, there are also two motors – one on the shaft to get high enough torque.


Team standings after five rounds (out of 11):

1 Renault e.Dams
2 Dragon Racing
3 ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport
4 DS Virgin Racing Formula E Team
5 Mahindra Racing Formula E Team
6 Andretti Formula E Race Team
7 Venturi Formula E Team
8 Team Aguri
9 NEXTEV TCR Formula E Team


More fun

The power output will be increased up to 200 kW in the next season, so the show is bound to be even more exciting.

Cool,isn't it?

Let's thank Alejandro Agag for not being pain in the ass and feverishly wait the new season.

    Car finance has become big business. A wide array of new and used car buyers in the UK are making their vehicle purchase on finance of some sort. It could be in the form of a bank loan, finance from the dealership, leasing, charge card, the trusty'Bank of Mum & Dad'used cars for sale Cherry Hill, or myriad other forms of finance, but relatively few people actually buy a car making use of their very own cash anymore.
