Peugeot 3008 DKR goes electric, changes name to GCK e-Blast 1
Guerlain Chicherit and his GCK Motorsport rally team is busy turning the Peugeot 3008 DKR – the vehicle that won the Rally Dakar in 2017 and 2018 – into an extreme all-electric off-roader called the GCK e-Blast 1.
The powertrain is rated at 340 PS (335 hp / 250 kW) and 1,001 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque. The team intends to pair it with an enormous 150-kWh battery sufficient for many hours of driving across challenging terrain.
The car is slated to debut at the 2021 Rally Dakar. A year after that, the team intends to attend the race with a buggy powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Other teams will be able to order such a buggy for themselves for a price, GCK Motorsport reports.
