COVERS COME OFF THE NEXT GENERATION FORMULA E CAR IN GENEVA

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND (March 6, 2018) - The physical model of the next generation Formula E car was revealed today on the FIA stand at the #geneva Motor Show, ushering in a new era for the #abbfiaformulaechampionship. The covers were taken off the FIA Formula E #gen2 car by FIA President Jean Todt and Founder & CEO of Formula E Alejandro Agag, using a robot arm supplied by title partner ABB. The unveiling took place in front of a selection of media, special guests as well as manufacturers and teams competing in the electric street #racing series. Technical specifications of the #gen2 car have also been disclosed, with the new car for the 2018/19 season proving the progress and enhancements made in terms of both performance and efficiency since the inaugural E-Prix only four years ago.
Other than the striking new-look for Formula E, the most notable change comes underneath the bodywork with the battery - doubling the range of the car. With almost twice the energy storage capacity available to the teams and drivers, there will no longer be the need for a mid-race car change. Alongside the improved longevity, the maximum power output of the car has increased to 250kW - an increase of 50kW that will see the potential top speed of Formula E reach 280 km/h (174 mph). Integrated as part of the chassis is the new Halo head protection device, along with an innovative strip of LED lighting. The lighting system concept will enable fans to better follow the strategy of their favourite team or driver - indicating things such as different power modes and other race-related information, with more details to be revealed ahead of the start of season five.
