WSC Group has chosen MAGELEC Propulsion to design, develop, manufacture and supply the Inverter, Motor, and Gearbox (IMG) for the first electric multi-brand Touring Car racing category, ETCR that will start in 2020.




MAGELEC Propulsion has been involved with Formula E since its inception and will leverage lessons learned from this motorsport category and the decades of manufacturing drivetrain products to deliver a reliable and powerful product.



“The team at MAGELEC Propulsion is delighted to be able to bring our products and electrification expertise to ETCR,” said Craig Daniel, CEO and Founder of MAGELEC Propulsion. “With the experience and know-how brought together from electric motorsport and on/off highway vehicles, we’re excited to work with the team at WSC Group to continue the progress of electric motorsport and inspire mainstream electric vehicle adoption.”



ETCR will be the first ever multi-brand Touring Car category for production cars powered by a common 100% electric powertrain.



“MAGELEC’s and Craig Daniel’s successful entrepreneurial background highlighted that we have the right partner to launch this pioneering category,” said WSC president Marcello Lotti.




“The company’s capabilities speak for themselves. We are proud of this agreement that associates MAGELEC’s powertrain system with a new and ambitious brand like ETCR. We are delighted to work with someone who understands cost control, which is key to successfully growing new forms of motorsport. 



WSC Group is the owner of the TCR brand, arguably the most successful motorsport category in recent years that has completely reshaped Touring Car competition globally. It was a logical step for the company to leverage MAGELEC in the application of new powertrain technologies.”
