Asynchronous e-bike drive: Viktor Arestov has developed an asynchronous wheel hub motor with combined windings for pedelecs and e-bikes, which is said to be superior to current models and does not make use of rare earth metals. The 3 kW electric motor is designed for low energy consumption, allowing for more range.

Aguri takes proven approach: Team Amlin Aguri will stick to what it knows during the second season of the Formula E and will neither develop nor buy a new drivetrain. Instead, the extra money and time will be spend on developing software and optimising the current system.
