Renault: Teams receive the first batch of single-seater electric cars
May 16, 2014, 3:03 PM

The first batch of electric Spark-Renault SRT_01E racing cars have now been delivered to the championship’s 10 registered teams at Donington, England.

The FIA Formula E Championship is gradually building up to the new competition’s first race in Beijing, China, on September 13. An initial series of development tests, which went perfectly at a variety of circuits in January, allowed the car’s architecture and systems to be checked, and the first batch of electric Spark-Renault SRT_01E racing cars have now been delivered to the championship’s 10 registered teams at Donington, England, on May 15, in keeping with the timeframe set for Spark Racing and Renault!

Said Patrice Ratti (General Manager, Renault Sport Technologies): “We are delighted to have worked alongside Spark ahead of the delivery of the first 10 Spark-Renaults to the Formula E teams.

It was no mean feat because this is the world’s first small-scale production-produced single-seater electric racing car to deliver such a high level of performance.

To have succeeded is another illustration of the passion that fires the teams of experts who work at Renault Sport, as well as of their grasp of advanced electric vehicle technologies.”

Frédéric Vasseur (President, Spark Racing Technologies): “The development, fine-tuning and production of such an innovative racing car as the Spark-Renault SRT_01E in such a short lapse of time was a challenge that we are particularly proud to have risen to. The cooperation we enjoyed with our various partners was remarkable and the input from the teams at Renault Sport was especially decisive in enabling us to develop a car that is reliable, safe and competitive. We are delighted to have reaped the fruit of our collaboration with Renault.”

Alain Prost, co-director of the French team E-Dams, and also an ambassador for Renault, was at Donington for this landmark delivery.

Meanwhile, Renault took advantage of the opportunity to present the keys of a Renault ZOE to Alejandro Agag, Chairman and General Manager of Formula E Holdings. His use of this vehicle as his personal car will allow him to see the benefits of zero-emission* motoring (i.e. no noise, crisp acceleration from low speeds and driving enjoyment) for himself and consequently join the 98 percent of Renault Z.E. owners who are satisfied with their car.
