What is the E-Cannonball?
The E-Cannonball is an e-rally that showcases the practicality of electric vehicles for everyday use. The rally is exclusive to battery-powered cars and motorcycles. Participants must complete the start/finish route and pass specific controls along the way. They are free to choose their route within a designated corridor, as well as their charging strategy.
The rally is evaluated based on points, which are awarded for complying with the specified charge level of the drive battery at the start and finish (SoC), adhering to transit controls, and the number of kilowatt hours consumed on the route. The distance covered is between 400 and 500 kilometers, and up to 70 teams can participate. (Participant list can be found here).
The event traditionally takes place in September and tours to various locations in Germany. In 2023, the event will occur on September 16th and 17th in Bavaria and Austria. The start and finish is at the Kurplatz in Bad Griesbach (Kurallee 1, 94086 Bad Griesbach im Rottal) Read more about the race at e-cannonball.de or watch the video below.
