I know it's a hybrid, but the changes to the 2009 WRC allow for electric motors to be added. In Citroens case a 125kw motor powered by 990 lithium-Ion batteries for a 400v system. Image

Looks like that car has an understeer problem
If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

Bugger me, 400V. We are having issues with 96V in a race car that is a road hugging princess! I think i can make our battery guy have heart failure if i said i want to use 990 cells now, i am only now coming to understand how difficult it is to run these batteries in high strain applications.

I want one if they sell them though :D.
