Using the very latest technology, the zero emission DRAGON Penske EV-2 stretches the boundaries of what is currently available in electric motorsport. Made from carbon fiber and aluminum, the chassis is both super lightweight and incredibly strong and fully complies with the latest FIA crash tests.
The Penske EV-2 electric powertrain (inverter, motor control unit, motor and transmission) is a bespoke system, designed and developed in house by DRAGON. Williams Advanced Engineering supplies the battery which produces 200kW, the equivalent of 270 bhp.
All systems integration is done in-house at Dragon Racing and is a key area of development for both road and racing electric vehicles.
Williams Advanced Engineering, part of the Williams group of companies that includes the world famous Williams F1 team, supplies the batteries for the Penske EV-2, providing 200kW, the equivalent of 270bhp.
Powertrain & Electronics
DRAGON designs and develops all powertrain and energy management electronics for the Penske EV-2. These electronics manage the complex processes of deploying electric power under acceleration and regenerating energy (to recharge) under deceleration.
While each team uses the same specified chassis for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship; DRAGON has developed and implemented our own design for the electric powertrain.
Monocoque chassis designed and constructed by leading Italian firm Dallara. Made from carbon fibre and aluminium, the chassis is both super lightweight and incredibly strong and fully complies with the latest FIA crash tests.
All cars are fitted with special Michelin 18” treaded tires, designed to give durability and consistent performance in both dry and wet conditions. Drivers receive two sets for each race.
