The car will be the successor of the SRT01, which was also developed by French company. The new SRT05e will be put in action by season five (2018-2019) and features a futuristic design that was required by the FIA and Formula E. It also contains a form of aeroscreen as cockpit protection that was first trialled by the Red Bull F1 Team.
“This is a new challenge for Spark as the new car must go twice the distance of the current cars, which will be accomplished by more efficient aero design, lower weight and better efficiency in the drivetrain,” the company published on their website.
“Safety and innovation are the main drivers of this project. We will design a new chassis including a new battery tech that will be heavier. In order to gain 10% weight, we are working on new innovating solutions using new materials so the cars can be more efficient and we also have to focus on new developments to keep the drivers safe.”
