The Dawn of a New Hybrid Era

The Rally One, which is the brand-new version of the World Rally Car, has changed a lot from before. Adding a motor to the 1.6L turbo engine, the rally became ‘hybrid’. A package containing a 100 kW (134 hp) motor, a 3.9 kWh battery, and a control unit is housed right in front of the rear axle. The center differential has been removed, the bodyweight has been increased to 1,260 kg, and a few aerodynamic parts and suspension have been simplified. The instant output has been increased from 380 hp to a maximum of 500 hp. Another difference is the chassis. Instead of reinforcing mass-produced monocoques, the rally cars use steel pipe space frame underneath the body.
