The ABB Formula E championship and the FIA officially unveiled the next gen car to be used from the start of the 2018/19 season.
The new car is striking and presents a step up in performance of the current car. The new car boasts nearly double the energy storage capacity and double the range. Speaking about the new car, Alejandro Agag commented by saying:
This car represents the future of racing. 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.
FIA president Jean Todt commented by saying:
These are very exciting times for Formula E. Today we show for the first time the design of the next generation car, and I’m sure that everyone will be very excited by how futuristic and advanced it is. I’m very proud that the FIA has been at the forefront of this car’s development, it’s something new for the Federation, and the project has been a huge success. I can’t wait to take the covers off the real car when it will be seen for the first time in Geneva on March 6.
