The Lancia Delta Integrale is returning as an electric rally car in the WRX World Rallycross Championship.

Eyes will be on the French-Italian race car in the lineup of 14 participating cars of the World RX 2022.

As for now, the public is still watching Swede Johan Kristoffersson overcoming a 17-point deficit from his rival, Timmy Hansen, to claim his fourth WRX rally world title last weekend.

Quoted from Autoblog today, Wednesday, December 1, 2021, the WRX team from GCK Motorsport France will campaign for the Lancia Delta Integrale race car in the all-electric silhouette series next year.

Last year, French company Green Corp Konnection (GCK) debuted its Lancia Delta Evo-e electric car, the updated Delta Integrale with a transplant of a two-motor AWD electric powertrain.

GCK plans to produce 44 units of the Lancia Delta Evo-e electric race car, each producing 197 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The electric car can cover a distance of about 124 miles on a single charge and a five-speed transmission.

The company is also preparing a support car for this year’s WRX rally series with the all-electric Lancia RX2e. The main electric car is the RX1e which will launch in the 2022 race.

Both the Lancia RX2e and RX1e use an electric powertrain made by Austrian company Kreisel, in the form of twin motors that make a total of 671 horsepower and 649 pound-feet of torque.

According to GCK, the Lancia RXie electric racing car can go from zero to 62 miles per hour in 1.8 seconds on the WRX rally arena.
