Back in late 2020, we released the exciting eX ZERO 2021 to rFactor 2. Having undergone extensive development following our initial conversations with former DTM champion Mike Rockenfeller, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working to the requested specification as we brought the car to life within our simulation, realizing a dream of Mike and his team to showcase to the world exactly what is possible with electric racing, and giving our players a glimpse at what the potential future of motorsport as we know it could look like in the years to come. Since its release, it has been of great interest to the studio to observe how the new car has been adopted by the community, including some fantastic eSport activations that we’ve seen popping up throughout the world.

Recently our development team has taken the opportunity to revisit the eX 2021 to add some further fine-tuning and enhancements to the car – adding a number of improved features and visual updates to really help elevate this unique vehicle in the experience it delivers to our players. Amongst other things, as part of this 1.33 update release, the RCCO eX ZERO 2021 has received energy regeneration capabilities – a new feature that gives players the opportunity to regenerate energy when braking – represented by the energy/fuel indicating turning blue under brake load.
