Technical Regulations 2024


For the first time ever, WRC cars ran hybrid engines in 2022, and this will continue into 2024. The Rally1 regulations see the cars fitted with 100kW plug-in hybrid power units that produce over 500 horsepower when combined with the 1.6 litre internal combustion engine. Unlike the push-to-pass systems of other motorsport championships with hybrid engines, drivers in WRC instead deploy the electrical energy through an automatic system dictated by pre-programmed engine maps.

Hybrid Unit

The common hybrid unit is composed of a 12,000rpm motor generator unit (MGU), an inverter control unit and a 3.9kWH battery operating up to 750 volts. The unit is connected from the MGU to all four wheels via the propeller shaft to maximise acceleration performance, delivering 180Nm of torque during the acceleration phase. The hybrid unit is housed in a ballistic-strength carbon fibre case that can resist impacts of up to 70G.

i20 coupe WRC


The minimum weight for the Rally1 cars is set to be at 1,260kg. This is to accommodate the additional weight of the new electrical elements in the vehicles.


WRC cars have a number of aerodynamic devices including wings at the front and rear of the car in order to improve the car’s downforce. The aggressive aerodynamics of the previous era of regulations have remained in the DNA of the current hybrid-powered cars.


The Rally1 regulations include increased safety features to protect the crews. These include a strengthened front and rear, the addition of a main roll-hoop in the spaceframe and a re-designed roof section that can absorb up to 115% more energy than previous regulations.
