Whether you are travelling on two wheels or four, driving on an urban road or a world championship racing circuit for electric vehicles, making all these driving experiences possible is Enel X technology
E-mobility is one of the four key areas of activity for Enel X, which already has a leading position in this sector at global level. Of course, there was no way we weren’t going to be playing a leading role in the two major sporting competitions for electric vehicles: Formula E for cars and MotoE for motorcycles. With these events, sport not only brings people together and provides thrilling entertainment, but it also contributes to respecting the environment through the development of technology.
From fast charging to micro-grids
The ABB FIA Formula E Championship, held on city circuits and organised for the first time in the 2014-2015 season, is the first and most important international motor racing competition for fully electric, single-seat cars. Enel is not just the official partner of Formula E, more importantly; Enel X provides the essential technologies.
When you are in a race, the decisive factor is speed. Our fast charging technology for electric batteries takes 7 times less time than conventional technologies: a Formula E single-seater is fully charged in about 45 minutes, compared to more than 5 hours for less advanced versions.
Riding these bikes offers extraordinary sensations: linear and powerful delivery, ideal weight distribution, and amazing agility. I really believe that they can represent the future
Formula E will certainly continue to be a driving force for development in so far as we can manage to take this technology beyond the sporting world into real life
