AN ELECTRIC MOTORSPORT ENGINEERING START-UP

We design, build and integrate electric powertrains that replace combustion engines to electrically power go-karts, formula racing and track-day cars, and off-road vehicles like kartcross, beach buggies, etc.

We are partners for one of the world’s biggest brands of Go-Karts – Praga, based in Italy. Our unique ultra-light, ultra-power electric powertrain drives the new RaceLine 2020 models of Karts for leisure applications.

The ElettriCo powertrain platform is modularised, universal and built around an extreme energy-density lithium-ion battery pack with a quick-swap design, and a lightweight super-efficient motor. Our smart software drives power modulation and electrical safety control functions. Tested in tough racetrack conditions, the platform offers automotive-grade reliability, very high utilisation with near-zero down-time and substantially low operational costs.

Our forward-thinking engineers constantly explore and research the boundaries of clean energy EV technology in the pursuit of assertive vehicle performance. We employ swift digital modelling, 3D printing and laser manufacturing, to quickly engineer new solutions to a global market. Our heart and soul are more than just our technology and resources. They’re also our passion for our mission and promise to our customers.

ElettriCo is serious about superlative performance and eco-superiority. And about delivering a smooth, breath-taking, driving experience that excites, inspires and respects the air above.

BUSINESS LEADERSHIP

We could either watch it happen or be a part of it.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Wishing is not enough; we must do.
If you are working on something that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
If you want to succeed, you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
A good idea is something that does not solve just one single problem, but rather can solve multiple problems at once.
