Formula E release next generation car

The next generation Formula E car was revealed on Tuesday (March 6).

    After being officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, video was released showing the Formula E Gen2 car being put through its paces at a private test.

    The car, which will make its racing debut at the start of next season later this year, comes with an improved battery which will double the range of the cars currently racing, meaning 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.

    The new model will compete over the coming three seasons, starting with season five in late 2018.
