Formula E reveals ‘Gen2 EVO’ car ahead of season seven debut

Summary:

The Gen2 EVO has arrived…

Formula E has today revealed an updated car design, named the Formula E Gen 2 EVO, which will make its race debut next season. The first-ever Formula E World Champion will be crowned in this car next season as the championship races with FIA World Championship status for the first time in 2020/21.

The new Formula E car features a striking new front wing design, a modified rear wing, and for the first time in the series, the addition of a dorsal fin or ‘shark fin’ as they’re more commonly known, towards the rear of the car.

Aside from the updated bodywork, the car will continue to use 18-inch Michelin all-weather tyres and the rules continue to allow teams to design and develop their own electric components and parts for the powertrain.

The Gen2 EVO Formula E car will be officially launched at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 3.

FIA President, Jean Todt:
“The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is in only its sixth season of competition, yet the technology within it has come a long way and can benefit all road users. I am pleased that as it transitions to world championship status, we see a further evolution of the Gen2 car – the Gen2 EVO – with an exciting new look. It is this progressive approach that has contributed to the expansion of the grid and increasing competitiveness of the championship, which continues to go from strength to strength and which is paving the way for the future of sustainable urban mobility.”

Formula E Founder & Chairman, Alejandro Agag:
“The Gen2 already stands out as one of the most striking race cars to hit the track, and just as the name implies, the Gen2 EVO is another evolution of the distinctive design. As we did with the first-generation car, the Gen2 EVO has been given reprofiled bodywork to make it look more sleek and agile. This car will forever go down in the history books as the first to challenge for an ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. I would like to thank FIA President Jean Todt and his team for making this evolution take shape. Its futuristic design once again showcases Formula E as the category for innovation in both technological advances and appearance.
