The new WRC hybrid era

This year marks a major transition for the championship in its new hybrid era. The new plug-in hybrid Rally 1 cars are designed around an enhanced safety cell chassis and use 100 percent fossil fuel. It has a 100kW electric motor that, when combined with a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine, maximizes performance over 500hp.

These new cars weigh approximately 70kg more than their predecessors and have no suspension ride, reduced aerodynamics and trick center differences.

Hyundai i20 N Rally1

With obvious technical changes, the i20 N Rally1 also features a slightly modified version of the Hyundai traditional blue and orange livery. The team conducted a substantial portion of its initial experiment on a prototype, while the latest iteration was only tested late last year.

The i20 N Rally1 will compete against hybrid challengers from current champions Toyota Gazoo Racing and M-Sport Ford.

Julian Moncet, Subcommittee Director, Hyundai Motorsport, said, “We tested the car with different conditions in different terrain to collect as much real-time data as possible.” The performance level of the car will really be known only when we get to the rally stage against our competition.

The team will field four pairs of drivers in three cars. Thierry Newville and co-driver Martign Widege, 2019 WRC champion Ott Tanak and co-driver Martin Jorvija will compete in all 13 rounds.

Oliver Solberg will share driving duties in the third car with experienced Spaniard Danny Sordo. Driven by Solberg Elliott Edmundson, Sordo begins his ninth season as a Hyundai Motorsport driver with Candido Carrera.

The i20 N Rally1 will make its competitive start at the start of the Rallye Monte-Carlo season on January 20-23.
