This is slowly getting closer to the concept they should have started with. Lose the F1 wannabe style so they are not so fragile....maybe a cross between TA and WRC. Add torque vectoring. Then let them beat, bang, and recharge around the city street confines they inhabit.The Gen3 car will be lighter...maximum power output of 350kW, capable of a top speed of over 320kph (200mph).
It will feature two powertrains – one at the front and rear – which will more than double the regenerative potential of the car compared to the current model.
Seems rather silly.
Yeah, F1 is getting rather silly with proportions and mass....
Apparently by having front regen (but no power) they can lose some of the battery.mzso wrote: ↑Thu Apr 28, 2022 9:41 pmSeems rather silly.
Wouldn't some mechanical linkage to the back make sense, since they don't drive the front?
They wouldn't need more batteries, since they have a powet cap, 4WD would allow to use it better even. So probably slightly even less battery/weight.Sevach wrote: ↑Thu Apr 28, 2022 10:00 pmApparently by having front regen (but no power) they can lose some of the battery.
If they had the front powering the wheels they would probably need even more battery and the car would be heavier.
The way they are doing it they can brag about "more power +better autonomy -weight".
The front motors only need to feed the battery in the end.
