Formula E has unveiled its new Gen 2 EVO car that will be used from next season.

The 2020/21 electric racer is a modified version of the current Gen 2 Formula E car, with redesigned bodywork bringing a slimmed down appearance.

Changes to the looks of the car mark the halfway point in the second generation of the current Formula E car, with the four year cycle ending after the conclusion of the 2021/22 season.

The introduction will also coincide with the first season Formula E is recognised as a world championship. FIA president Jean Todt said that the new design was another step forward for the electric racing series.

“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,” Todt said.

“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.”
