INSTANT PIT STOP RECHARGING FOR FORMULA E CARS
A high speed development of patent GB2253379 has yielded a chassis design for Formula E cars that does not radically change the aerodynamics, seating or weight distribution of a Formula E racing car. In fact the weight distribution can be improved over Formula 1.
