Gen3 Car Revealed

The future of all-electric high performance motorsport was revealed today at the Yacht Club de Monaco by Formula E and the Fedration Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), where the third generation Formula E car was revealed to the public.

The Gen 3 car is the world’s first race car which is designed for street racing, it will be debuting for Season 9 (next year) where some of the world’s greatest manufacturers race wheel to wheel on the streets of iconic global cities.

It was developed by engineers and sustainability experts at both the FIA and Formula E, the car is designed to show the world that both high performance and sustainability can powerfully co-exist without any compromise.

Seven of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers have registered with the FIA to race the Gen 3 car in Season 0 with pre-season testing this winter. They are:

  • DS Automobiles, France
  • Jaguar, UK
  • Mahindra Racing, India
  • Maserati, Italy
  • NIO 33, UK & China
  • Nissan, Japan
  • Porsche AG, Germany.

Design, engineering and the production innovations for the Gen3 car include but not all:

Performance:

  • Fastest Formula E car yet with a top speed over 322 kph/ 200 mph.
  • Round 95% power efficiency from an electric motor delivering up to 350kW of power.
  • First ever formula car with both front and rear powertrains.

Sustainability:

  • Gen3 batteries are among the most advanced, sustainable batteries ever made.
  • Linen and recycled carbon fibre will be used in bodywork construction for the first time in a formula car.
  • All Gen3 suppliers will operate in line with top international standards to reduce environmental impacts of manufacturing.

Both technologically and environmentally, Gen3 sets new standards in the sport. The FIA and Formula E development teams have done a superb job, and I thank them for their hard work on this project. I am delighted to see so many leading manufacturers already signed up to the championship’s next era and await Gen3’s competitive debut in Season 9 with great anticipation.

Mohammed Ben Sulayem, FIA President.

Monaco is the spiritual home of motorsport and there is nowhere more fitting to unveil our Gen3 race car. The Gen3 disrupts and challenges the conventions of motorsport, setting the benchmark for performance, efficiency and sustainability without compromise. Together with the FIA, we are proud to reveal the Gen3 to Formula E fans and demonstrate to the wider sports industry how elite sport, high performance and sustainability can successfully co-exist in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. We cannot wait to see how our teams and drivers push the car to its limit in 2023.

Jamie Reigle, Chief Executive Officer Formula E.

My Opinion-

What a car!! Love the way it looks, I can’t wait to see how the team’s livery will look on the Gen3 car and to see it on track! It’s definitely a step forward in being a sustainable sport which is nice to see.
