Mouser Electronics, Inc., cheers on the DS PENSKE Formula E team as they kick off Season 9 at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez track in Mexico City on January 14, 2023. With a race-ready surface and long corners, Mexico City is one of the fastest tracks on the calendar featuring a mix of long and fast straights and a technical infield section through Foro Sol stadium. Mouser is partnering with the DS PENSKE team throughout the 2022–23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship racing season, in collaboration with TTI, Inc. and valued manufacturers Molex and KYOCERA AVX.
The DS PENSKE team will be racing the new third-generation Formula E DS E-TENSE FE23, which combines high-performance, efficiency, and stability. The Gen3 cars feature a top speed of 280 kph, are 60 kg lighter than the Gen2 cars, and offer double the regen capacity — meaning more than 40% of the energy used in-race is via regeneration under braking.
The team benefits from two past Formula E Champions driving its cars, the reigning World Champion Stoffel Vandoorne, and the two-time Formula E Champion, Jean-Eric Vergne. In the time-trials leading up to the race, Jean-Eric Vergne fired DS PENSKE to the top of the timesheets, setting the fastest time of the week with a new benchmark of 1:25.248.
The Formula E series features cars that are powered solely by electricity and represent a vision for the future of the motorsports industry, serving as a framework for research and development around zero-emission motoring. Racing is all about speed and endurance, and racing partnerships are an innovative way for Mouser to communicate its performance-driven business model and promote the newest technologies from its manufacturer partners.
