    For me the Opel Corsa electric looks like an example of how not to make an electric rally car.

    I admit that I don't know all that much about it, but it seems it has no single advantage compared with the petrol (Adam) car. When it looses sound and gains weight, there needs to be something to make it worth watching. With electric the easiest thing is acceleration, which doesn't look any better.

    It's about money. The Corsa is clearly all about being a relatovely cheap electric car.

    I doubt something like 10-20% more power would be much more expensive.

    If I am not mistaken those cars don't even have recuperation. With 20% more power they would need more batteries and they would be even heavier and brake even worse then they do and on top of that they would be more expensive.

    Anyway the cars are a nice example how attractive an EV is, when it is made relatively cheap. Don't forget that majority of entry field of any rally event is made of even cheaper cars than this.
