ABB Charging Technology for Gen 3 Cars of the FIA Formula E World Championship

Industry News – Monday, July 20, 2020

The new cars that will race as of Season 9 in 2022 and 2023 will profit off ABB’s fast charging technology. Overall the vehicles are designed to be lighter, faster and more energy-efficient.

“The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is more than a race – it is our test-bed for innovative electromobility technologies, driving development to the production line of electric vehicles and ultimately contributing to a cleaner environment for all,” says Tarak Mehta, President of ABB Electrification. “We are very proud to be associated with Formula E and the FIA’s decision to elevate the race series to World Championship status in Season 7 enhances Formula E’s growing impact.”

ABB is developing a portable charging solution with the ability to charge two cars simultaneously, but the company needs to work out specifications and requirements in collaboration with engineers from the FIA and Formula E first.
