Since leaving the WRC at the end of 2019, the 42-year-old has competed at the 2021 Dakar Rally, with this year being his first venture into an electric-based series.
“I’m really excited to join XITE Energy Racing,” said Meeke. “I was really interested in every aspect: the team, the car and the championship.
“Rallycross is a category of motorsport that suits electrification perfectly: it’s short, sharp racing with an incredible amount of power available instantaneously.
“If it’s managed well, this can certainly be a bright future and it’s really nice to be part of that with the XITE Energy Racing Team.”
Meeke will race alongside team owner and driver Oliver Bennett, who also competes in the Extreme E Championship.
