e-GoKart Powertrain YoungStar

Discover the electrified future of go-kart racing.

Engineers working at the e-GoKart Powertrain YoungStar

The e-GoKart Powertrain YoungStar provides high power over a wide range for maximum vehicle speed. By intelligent software, the e-GoKart System gets the best out of the vehicle at any time and any driving profile, energy recuperation included. The high energy and power density allow small and lightweight vehicles like e-GoKarts to reach new levels of performance and driving fun.

Electrification will bring more excitement, driving pleasure, and greater efficiency to motorsport.
