Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky assigned official EPWR development driver
Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky is going to take on a new role in 2022 as official development driver for EPWR with focus on the new 100% electric drivetrain prototype PWR002.
EPWR is a new technical concept for the future of racing with a strong focus on sustainability.
“I’ve believed in electric racing for a long time and that’s why it’s going to be really rewarding to take on this important role at EPWR,” said Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky.
2018 saw Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky, the first female STCC winner for CUPRA Dealer Team – PWR Racing, driving the PWR001 prototype and has since then been part of the continued development of the EPWR concept.
“We are happy to continue our successful relationship with Mikaela and to take it to anew level connected to EPWR during 2022 and beyond,” said Daniel Haglöf, founder of EPWR.
“Mikaela has got vast experience of a lot of different race cars and especially electric race cars, something that’s vital for her role in the EPWR project.”
EPWR will accelerate the development of future race cars when it comes to sustainability and performance.
“A concept like PWR002 entails a race car which is exciting and challenging to drive, something that will provide spectacular racing. The difference to the race cars of today is vast when it comes to performance and a low centre of gravity due to thebatteries,” said Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky.
“The current focus for me is primarily to validate the development that has been done, and to make sure that the technical parts work under the extreme conditions that racing entails. I’m also happy that there already now is a common goal to race together with PWR Racing during 2023 and beyond.”
