Audi unveiled its car for Formula E racing Source:

We have written several times about a fairly young type of racing, Formula E, which involved high-speed cars, but with one condition: they are all purely carts. More and more brands are becoming interested in this class "Formula". And not so long ago, much to the team were joined by carmaker Audi with a very curious instance of the high-speed electroblade.

The Formula E season which starts in December this year in Hong Kong, to present the Audi team on the road are new cars FE04. In addition to the desire to compete for the main prize, these cars will become a kind of "test", in which Audi's engineers will have to hone new technologies for production of electric vehicles.

The Experts at Audi responsible for the development of engines, sure that they were able to get the maximum performance and efficiency of electric motors. In addition to the refined engine, FE04 will present the new single-stage transmission. As stressed by one of the leaders of the divisions of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass,

"Together with the ABT team Schaeffler, we have developed a fundamentally new type of transmission. Now you won't even be able to visually identify the node, looking at the box made of carbon fiber, in which it is enclosed. We are very pleased with this collaboration, which lasted for more than a year. Cars FE04 will receive a new paint scheme, designed in green and black colors, plus four «brand» Audi rings, scattered in different parts of the body. The chief pilot of our team will be Lucas di Grassi, having a rating of 1, and the company will make him Daniel ABT, whose rating equals 66".
