We are entering the world of sports cars and, in particular, the laboratories of Casa Energica Motor Company, Italian manufacturer of electric vehicles, which is uninterruptedly working to set up at best the 18 Ego Corsa for the new season of the MotoE Championship at Jerez circuit, whose official tests are scheduled from 2nd to 4th March and from 12th to 14th April 2021.
The work includes also the shake-down of new components developed by Energica R&D specifically for the racing world. After the release, at the end of 2019, of the new power unit with 21.5 kWh battery, in less than one year Energica Motor Company has developed new technical solutions to reach a new performance dimension, intervening on weights to lighten the vehicle and on the asset to favour a better drive handling.
Energica is now taking yet another step to expand its commercial offerings, with the option of including the CHAdeMO charging system on Energica MY2021 motorcycles.
There is another Energica’s development about technology: «Our existing VCU (Vehicle Control Unit) – said Giampiero Testoni, CTO Energica Motor Company Spa – has been adapted to be able to implement the dialogue with the newly developed control unit. This interaction is fundamental to guarantee the technical demands of this standard.“
“Obviously we had to equip the motorcycle with the independent CHAdeMO fast charge socket to which we also added an additional socket for slow charging. Technical studies related to the design ensure we can always position the system under the seat of the vehicle, where the CCS Combo standard has already been present».
