Formula E have unveiled their fastest ever car, the Gen3 Evo, which will be introduced into the all-electric series next season.

The championship will run with a revised specification of its current Gen3 car for its third season of competition, starting in 2025.

Called the Gen3 Evo, following the same naming convention used for updated models of many GT3 cars, Formula E claims the newest car will be significantly quicker than the one currently raced.

Formula E target an overall performance improvement of around two-percent with the revised car, which they described as the equivalent of two-tenths per lap at a circuit such as Monaco. The Gen3 Evo should also have the quickest acceleration of any Formula E car, with a 0-60mph time of 1.82 seconds, and a maximum top speed of 200mph (321kph).

The car will also be the first four-wheel-drive car in the series’ history, however this will only be active for qualifying duels, race starts and during Attack Mode activations. The overall energy efficiency of the electric motor will sit at around 90%.

Formula E have promised that car bodywork will be “stronger and more robust” than current cars, while new tyres from supplier Hankook should offer between 5-10% more grip than current tyres.

Formula E CEO Jeff Dodds said the unveiling of the Gen3 Evo marked a “ground-breaking chapter in the evolution of Formula E”.

“Featuring unprecedented acceleration and an advanced aerodynamic design, the car that I had the honour of unveiling in Monaco is set to intensify the thrill of our racing, captivating our drivers and fans around the world with truly superior capabilities and performance,” Dodds said.

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem also praised the design of the revised model.

“The FIA and Formula E have been working hard on the development process of this new Gen3 Evo race car, which represents another significant leap forward in electric racing technology,” Ben Sulayem said.

“I would like to thank both FIA and Formula E teams for the hard work which underlines our shared commitment to pushing the boundaries of sustainable motorsport, while delivering competitive racing.”

The next round of the 2024 Formula E season will take place this weekend in Monaco on Saturday.
