e-Wolf electric racer E1


Oooh, this looks interesting ! An electric single seater racer with road legal options. We hope this isn’t vaporware, and certainly, the acceleration of the Tesla Roadster proves that blistering performance is possible in an electrocar. With a lightweight carbon/aluminum chassis it’s gonna be quick, although e-Wolf only claim a sub 5 second sub 0-100kph. Top speed is claimed to be limited to 250kph suggesting that there would be more to come.

The idea is that e-Wolf launch the E-1 single seater, and follow it up with the E-2 sportscar/supercar. Li-Tec batteries appear to be the key to their performance and range. Read on for more details

e-WOLF, e-1
From E-Wolf
e-WOLF. The new technology leader has created a new automobile category: extreme electric sports cars. With acceleration values on the edge of technical feasibility.

The e-1 by car manufacturer e-WOLF GmbH is a first: an ultralight carbon/aluminium-construction chassis with innovative flat cell technology, formula racing technology and approval for on-road use. Thanks to its innovation and technology, the e-1 achieves performance values that have been impossible in its class until now: 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds. For safety reasons, its top speed is limited to 250 km/h. e-WOLF differentiates itself in the market by virtue of its consistent use of lightweight construction elements in addition to its 100% electrical drive system. All of the technologies, components and assemblies it uses are “Made in Germany”.

Revolutionary battery technology
A Li-Tec battery with CERIO® flat cells is the key component. It features a higher temperature tolerance and improved safety relative to other technologies. This innovation was nominated for the 2007 German Future Prize, a great honour. Its special low-volume composite anodes can store significantly more energy than most other products now in the market. Each flat cell (the battery has a total of 84) weighs just 1 kg and measures 23 x 18 cm. That means it is only a bit larger than an exercise book. Another important aspect of the Li-Tec battery with CERIO® flat cells is its cycle stability and unrivalled service life (10 years) and range (over 300 km). That makes Li-Tec the spearhead of current flat cell development.

Model variants and marketing
To demonstrate the technology, an open-wheeled version of the e-WOLF electric sports car will be exhibited at the IAA 2009. e-WOLF has planned its sales launch (customised limited edition) for the beginning of 2010. “Our aim is to offer a 2-seater extreme sports car in 2011: the e-WOLF e-2,” said Kai Schönenberg, Marketing Manager at e-WOLF GmbH. “It will achieve dynamic vehicle performance that is sure to be very impressive.” This innovative 4-wheel drive vehicle will be powered by 4 high-performance electric motors with direct coupling. “Here at e-WOLF, we can certainly envisage our e-2 participating in a 24-hour race in the next few years,” said Schönenberg. e-WOLF is being marketed worldwide, with promotions concentrating initially on the Near East and Japan. e-WOLF is in a different league – it does not compete with the big sports car manufacturers. e-WOLF targets a market segment that has been neglected until now: extreme sports cars for a particularly elite clientele. To put it plainly: it is an electric sports car with a capacity for acceleration that puts it on the edge of technical feasibility.
