The new electric car by Opel will debut in Frankfurt Motor Show and it represents a brand new experience for EVs. Opel Corsa-e is a car for rally runs.
In 2020, Opel Corsa-e and ADAC will promote a new Rally Cup exclusively for electric cars. It will be the first one ever created in the world.
Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller stated:
“The Corsa-e is the electric car for everyone – fully suited to everyday use and absolutely affordable, attributes that equally apply to motor sport. The new Corsa is also fun to drive and particularly dynamic. Using the production car as the basis, we are the first carmaker in the world to have developed an electric rally car.”
The Corsa-e features a 50kWh battery pack, a 136 horsepower, and a 260 Nm of torque.
Here are some images of the car.
The president of ADAC Sport said:
“With the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup, we are bringing electric drive for the first time to mainstream sport and especially to young-driver support. The innovative concept and the cooperation with Groupe PSA open new possibilities for us, especially in support of young drivers. I am certain that the ADAC Opel e-Rally Cup will point the way ahead for motor sport far beyond the borders of Germany.”
