IMG has confirmed it will unveil its Projekt E race car on Friday, September 13, at the Neste World RX of Latvia. The EV will feature in the electric development series in 2020.

Projekt E is a collaboration between IMG and Austrian company Stohl Advanced Research and Development (STARD). Using STARD’s REVelution EV powertrain system, the race car will produce up to 613bhp combined power, 1100Nm of torque and hit a top speed of 240km/h (150mph).

Projekt E will showcase electric-powered cars on the same event schedule as traditional World RX Supercars at selected European rounds of the championship in 2020.

The aim of the series is to evaluate electric race cars in a WRX environment in accordance with the roadmap for electrification of the FIA World Rallycross Championship.

“The official reveal of the Projekt E race car at the Neste World RX of Latvia is an important milestone in our path to introducing electrification to the FIA World Rallycross Championship,” said Paul Bellamy, senior vice president of IMG Motorsports.
