Andros Trophy goes Electric

The annual ice racing championships held in the French Alps during the off season this year introduced a class for EV race cars. In what is a first for professional motorsport, the "Trophée Andros Électrique" featured 8 identical space frame EVs built by Exagon engineering .

Each Andros Car 03 - Evo 2 is rear wheel drive, weighs just 800 kg and is powered by a 90 Kw (122 hp) Siemens 3 phase AC electric motor with 200 Nm of torque. The battery pack is Lithium Ion although no size is specified.

The popular rallycross format French series ran a single seater demonstration EV last year that bore a striking resemblance to a buggy. This year they EVs were more conventional 2 seaters.
