Formula E unveils Gen2 EVO World Championship Car

Formula E and the FIA have unveiled the next generation electric car that will participate in the 2020/21 season, when the flagship ABB series competes under the new guise of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

Parked up in the business hub of London by Canary Wharf underground station, onlookers had the chance to view the exciting new design, that features a new front wing, dorsal fin, distinctive curved rear wing and updated championship livery, according to the official FIA Formula E website.

“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,” said Founder & Chairman of Formula E Alejandro Agag.

“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’d 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.”

According to FIA President Jean Todt, the Gen2 EVO will take electric car development to a new level, at the same time benefitting road car technology whilst providing even more exciting racing for the championship.

“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,” said Todt. “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.”
