Iris ONE FWD/.05 Announcement

Electric Touring Car newcomers Iris has announced it will unveil the FWD version of the ONE this coming Sunday as well as details of an updated ONE.05 version of the 4WD chassis.  The original ONE Touring Car was officially unveiled 10-months ago and the release of a FWD kit is a logical move for the German brand and the car’s designer Andreas Myrberg given the popularity of the FWD category.  On social media Iris posted, ‘This Sunday, October 1st, we are thrilled to unveil the FWD version of the Iris ONE.  But that’s not all — we’re also introducing the ONE.05 TC car.  After careful consideration of feedback from our valued customers and team drivers, we decided to incorporate significant improvements not just in the Iris ONE.05 FWD car, but also in the ONE.05 TC version. Both cars maintain their foundational concepts from the Iris ONE, including the unique damper and spring system, but with enhanced performance and durability. Join us for the release of both cars on Sunday, October 1st, at 4 p.m. CEST.
