Dagon Penske looks to be committing to the Formula E Gen3 era after signing a “long-term” partnership with Bosch, planning to construct a powertrain for the new regulations.
The team will start the 2021 season with a powertrain used last year when the team finished 11th in the team standings. They will later introduce new hardware for the Rome E-Prix on April 10, with a new electronic vehicle management system developed by Bosch.
Team Principal Jay Pense said: “Through our work together we will provide Bosch with a platform to both showcase its capabilities as it develops Formula E specific technologies, while also using the team’s story-telling abilities to illustrate the role Bosch is playing as a leader in the electrification of the mobility industry.
“This long-term technical partnership marks a significant turning point for the team.”
According to Motorsport.com, the “long-term” alliance suggests Dragon Penske Autosport is ready to become a third manufacturer, alongside Mahindra and DS Automobiles, that will commit to the new Gen3 regulations that will come for the 2022-23 season.
