As the World Rally Championship continues to work towards a more sustainable future, the championship has witnessed ground-breaking changes by pioneering hybrid cars. These new-generation of Rally1 cars are from three manufacturers, reigning champions Toyota Gazoo Racing, Hyundai Motorsport and M-Sport Ford.
These plug-in hybrid-powered cars are built around an upgraded safety cell chassis, 100 percent fossil-free fuel and sustainable energy supplies that are key to the sport’s commitment to a greener future.
The new hybrid challengers blend a 100kW electric motor with a competition-proven 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which has powered the sport’s top-tier cars since 2011.
