    Much better to invest instead in a Hybrid car then, the Outlander PHEV is doing well, I think even Jean Todt tried to say between the lines the next set of regulations will be based on some kind of hybrid powertrain, why go for full electric?

    Actually quite large percentage of rally drivers don't have a clue what proper asphalt driving means and they try to compensate the lack of skills by aggressive and risky driving.

    But that's not an answer to my question. Just tell me what shall be the subject of Mitsubishi's approval. It's simple and genuine question.

    We arent talking about approval right now, but if/when the new series is announced.

    Fair point. Hybrid would make more sense.

    You keep talking about some approval but any approval must have a subject. When You approve something You need to know what is that something. What is that something to approve here? I am sorry but am I so hard to understand?

    Do You mean that making an EV R5 car now shall help the Swedes to get a homologation approval from Mitsubishi if in ten years FIA decides to create electric R5 car class?

    Or do You mean that they shall approve a certain sort of support to the project already now?

    Or do You mean they shall approve a support of non-FIA series for electric cars?

    Or do You mean they shall approve something completely different?

    from what I Have heard it is Rallycross that is first out with an ZE class.
    boring but true. I have tried to watch Formula e, but find it boring. Much because of lack of rev-sound.

    Why all the fuss? These eRally protos (from the Hybrid C4 to this Mirage) are nothing more than tech exercises made to capture the media interest.

    Maybe some of their features will be retained in future regs, maybe not, meanwhile they gave a lot of free publicity to their makers, as nowadays any news about EVs gets immediate worldwide coverage…

    Would be a good testbed for potential FIA homologation?
