Electric era moves closer as STCC cars delivered

The electric era for the STCC has moved a step closer to becoming reality after the twelve new cars built for the 2024 season were delivered.

A total of three Cupra Born, three BMW i4, three Tesla Model 3 and three Volkswagen ID.3 have been designed and built by EPWR for use in the inaugural season, with a series of tests now planned before the first event of the year.

That is scheduled to take place in Gothenburg in early June.

“The feeling is fantastic after taking delivery of twelve brand new racing cars to our base in Ljungbyhed ahead of our historic 2024 season,” Micke Bern, CEO of STCC, said.

“This is our biggest step forward so far together with EPWR and the teams, a long-awaited one after the delays last year. This also marks the start of the next big step in the form of the function tests before the cars are fully ready for the teams for the official pre-season tests and the premiere.”

Build of the cars had been subject to a number of delays that forced the series to put back the first electric season, with the team at EPWR having worked hard to ensure the new cars were ready for the revised start date.

“I want to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the work, from our engineering and mechanic team to all our partners who have been with us every step of the way,” Micke Jansson, CEO of EPWR, said.

“Their dedication and hard work has been instrumental in making this delivery possible and we now have an exciting spring ahead of us.”
