“We are paving the way for carbon-neutral kart racing with the expansion of our e-powertrain offering for different racing classes. The all-electric zero-emission E10 brings a whole new racing experience, with low noise and no smell. With this introduction, BRP-Rotax combines the success factors of its existing product range with the features demanded by today’s consumers, thus shaping a new market.”

The new Rotax E10 will first be available for racing and testing starting in spring 2023.
