ABB FIA Formula E is all about the future of e-mobility. Our collective understanding of how we use energy in the next generation of road-going vehicles is being driven by the technological developments made in the world’s fastest all-electric series right now.
To be successful in Formula E means harvesting and deploying energy for high performance competition in the most efficient way through battery power and energy regeneration.
To do this requires sophisticated electric motors that run at significantly more revolutions than traditional combustion engines, and advanced high-friction gearboxes that operate at extremely hot temperatures. All of these need specially-developed E-fluids that can perform effectively in unique and extreme conditions, but are also compatible with components that conduct electricity.
Formula E therefore provides the perfect environment for Castrol to collaborate, learn and win on the track while continuing to develop its advanced technology and E-fluids for today’s electric vehicles as well as those that will define the future of the automotive world.
In 2021, the Jaguar Racing Formula E Team is using Castrol’s advanced e-fluids onboard the Jaguar I-TYPE 5, building on a long and successful motorsport partnership that includes glory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Daytona.
