Andretti Technologies, otherwise known as Andretti TE, is an American based manufacturer and part of Andretti Autosport.[1] Andretti TE supply their own team, Andretti Formula E, in the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, although their entry as a manufacturer will come to an end at the end of the season, being replaced by BMW for 2018/19.[2]

Background

Andretti Technologies was formed in 2015 for the sole purpose of building powertrains for the Formula E Championship.[3] A deal was also signed with TE Connectivity to develop sensors and advise on software during their testing programme ahead of the 2015/16 season, which would last through until the end of the 2017/18 season.[3]

Formula E History

Andretti's first powertrain was set to appear at the start of the 2015/16 FIA Formula E Championship, and duly arrived in time for the 2015 Donington Test.[4] However, after a series of catastrophic failures during the public test, the Andretti Formula E team were forced to revert to the old Spark-Renault SRT_01E for the season, with Andretti TE abandoning development of their ATEC-01.[5] They regrouped and started development of their 2016/17 powertrain as soon as the regulations allowed, resulting in the heavily revised ATEC-02.[6]

Products

Andretti Technologies have produced three powertrains for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, although only two have been used in competition.

Andretti ATEC-01

Main article: Andretti ATEC-01

Andretti's first car, the ATEC-01, was not a particularly strong one, and, having failed to cover any serious mileage at the 2015 Donington Test, would never race in the FE Championship.[5]

Andretti ATEC-02

The second ATEC-02 would be a far more reliable platform for the Andretti Formula E team, although the three speed design was only able to pick-up a handful of points at the hands of Robin Frijns and António Félix da Costa.[6]

Andretti ATEC-03

Main article: Andretti ATEC-03

The third, and likely final, Andretti Technology creation, the ATEC-03, proved to be another reliable but unspectacular design, with no real improvements compared to its predecessor.[7]
