First images of new Formula E car revealed
The FIA and Formula E have released digital images of the next generation Formula E car, ahead of the physical unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6.
It is the first car ever to be created by the governing body for motorsport, with the FIA bringing together the world’s leading designers and engineers to work on the concept. The common package of specification parts will be homologated and built by individual manufacturers to house their own bespoke powertrains.
The new generation car demonstrates a step up in performance from the current racer, with almost double the energy storage capacity and double the range, meaning the teams and drivers will complete a full race distance at higher speeds, without needing to make a mid-race car swap.
“This car represents the future of racing,” said FE founder Alejandro Agag. “When we started Formula E, our goal was to break the mould and challenge the status quo – bringing a revolution to motorsport. This next generation car represents that revolution. The cars will be faster and will have almost double the amount of energy storage capacity and double the range, demonstrating the continuous evolution of battery technology. Together with the FIA, we’ve achieved a great milestone with the introduction of this car and I can’t wait to see it on track.”
