The Federation Internationale de l'Automobile’s (FIA) World Motor Sport Council has approved plans for the FIA World Rallycross Championship to be an electric series from 2020.
The FIA and a number of carmakers have collaborated on this project for past eighteen months.
"We will continue to work closely with the car manufacturers in the run-up to the 30 July deadline for their commitment to the electric Championship," the FIA said.
The FIA has appointed single suppliers for two key common parts of the Championship car; ORECA has been appointed as the single supplier for the chassis and Williams Advanced Engineering has been appointed as the single supplier for the battery.
Paul Bellamy, IMG’s senior vice-president for motorsports, said: "We are pleased about the single supplier appointments as the success and track record of each company speaks for itself."
