The PB18 E-tron driver’s seat and the cockpit can be slid laterally as they are integrated into a monocoque shell internally, meaning the driver can shift the position to the centre as in a monoposto. Made with carbon, aluminium and other mixed materials the weight of PB18 is anticipated to be ~1.5 ton.
