Formula E has officially unveiled the new Gen 2 EVO car which will be competing in the series from the 2020/21 season.
The car, which was leaked in an Instagram post yesterday, features several changes to the bodywork of the cars.
These include revised front and rear wings, the removal of the wheel guards covering the top of the wheels and a dorsal fin, which will help to stabilise the car.
Formula E founder and Chairman Alejandro Agag was enthusiastic about the appearance of the new car and said: “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.”
FIA president Jean Todt was looking forward to the introduction of the new car, adding: “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.”
