World Première of Formulino E - a Junior Electrical Single Seater.

Formulino-E---premiere-2017-03-15A consortium of Punch Powertrain, Dallara, Prospeed Engineering, ACT and HERONsports is proud to announce the unveiling of the first rolling prototype of a Junior Electrical Single Seater: Formulino E.
Objective is to reach industrialization by end 2017 and sell an affordable Junior Electrical Single Seater (target Price of 80.000 Euro) to racing schools and promotors of support races taking into account the growing interest for E-Racing at all levels and in all disciplines.

Formulino E is based on the well-known and proven Dallara lightweight carbon fibre monocoque chassis. A compact integration of battery and drivetrain developed by Punch Powertrain combined with the existing chassis results in a cost effective overall package.
The electric motor in this vehicle is a unique integrated concept with a switched reluctance machine operating at 660V. The current version delivers up to 120kW while next versions could deliver over 200kW within the same package. Combined with the low weight of just 600kg it offers quick acceleration and a top speed exceeding 200 kph.
