With high voltage into the future


Purely electric karting: The German Electric Kart Championship (Deutsche Elektro-Kart-Meisterschaft - DEKM) is the first purely electric karting race series in the world to consciously focus on forward-looking technologies. And DEKRA is accompanying the innovative championship as a technical partner.


It is a classic “win-win” situation: The DEKM benefits from the expertise that DEKRA has built up over decades in other motorsports categories such as the DTM and the ADAC GT Masters. And with its involvement in the electric kart series, DEKRA sharpens its expertise in the field of electromobility. As the technical partner of the DEKM, DEKRA performs the tests on the high-voltage system and also assumes its certification at DEKRA Certification in Arnheim.

The e-karts accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of up to 135 km/h. Centralized use of the e-karts ensures equality of opportunity in the field, while strictly regulated test days and tire quotas provide for cost efficiency.

The races of the electric series will be held as part of the German Kart Championship (Deutsche Kart-Meisterschaft - DKM) as well as during the Rotax MAX Challenge Euro Trophy.

Thus, high levels of excitement are ensured in the electric series.
