Forging the future of electric mobility

Formula E brings racing tech to the road. With nine global car brands going head to head in the 2018/19 season, Formula E is more than just a racing series - it's a battle for the future. Our cars, powered by pure electricity, pave the way for the cars of tomorrow.

Welcome to the future. Welcome to Gen2. 

While the Championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the track is ever-changing. The 2018/19 season sees 22 brand new Gen2 cars racing around 12 city circuits for the very first time in the history of the series.

The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so no more mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose.
