THE BMW iFE.21.

Thoroughly optimised.

THE BMW iFE.21.Thoroughly optimised.

Like its predecessor, the BMW iFE.21 also has a uniform chassis as stipulated by Formula E regulations. BMW expertise remains primarily in the core of the car, the enhanced drive train. The characteristic of the BMW Racing eDrive02 was revised based on the detailed information on the individual racetracks that the team gathered in their maiden season, and modified to suit the specific challenges of Formula E races. The changes affect the E-motor and the inverter.

The main goal of the modifications is to improve the efficiency of the drivetrain. The same glycol as is used in production vehicles is now also used for its water circulation system. The BMW i Motorsport engineers also optimised the software that calculates energy management strategies, and the simulator in Munich. The rear-end structure was also reworked, to provide more flexibility for the set-up.

Rear-end structure of the BMW iFE.21

REAR-END STRUCTURE.

Compared withthe BMW iFE.18, the rear-end structure of the BMW iFE.21 has been reworked and optimised. Primarily, this provides greater flexibility when tuning the perfect set-up.

Cooling System of the BMW iFE.21

THE COOLING SYSTEM.

360° cooling allows constant operation for longer races and high temperatures. The CFD optimisation ensures minimum loss of pressure.

E-Machine BMW iFE.21

THE E-MACHINE.

Maximum efficiency through the use of highly effective cooling technologies and the latest materials.

Spirit Marks BMW iFE.21

SPIRIT MARKS.

The BMW i Spirit Marks established during the course of last seasons are also reflected in the design of the cars.

Matt black design elements BMW iFE.21

MATT BLACK DESIGN ELEMENTS.

A striking change compared with the BMW iFE.18 is the significant extension of the non-reflective, matt black cockpit element to the whole driver environment. It puts even more focus on the driver and highlights his pivotal role in Formula E.

Colour scheme of the BMW iFE.21

COLOUR SCHEME.

The BMW logo pattern emphasised in the BMW iFE.18 has been given a slightly more abstract interpretation for the BMW iFE.20 and BMW iFE.21. In return, there is greater accentuation of the progression of colour from blue to violet, the natural colours of electricity.

Inverter BMW iFE.21

THE INVERTER.

Use of the latest silicon carbide technology MOSFETS with minimum loss of transition and conduction.
