Formula E Unveils New Gen3 Car in Monaco.

In the run-up to the 2022 Monaco E-Prix, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has unveiled its next generation car which is set to be used from the series’ ninth season of competition.

As the successor to the current Gen2 model – which has been in use since 2018 – the Gen3 marks a significant step and sets a new industry benchmark for electric vehicle technology.

Flawless Performance

The vehicle represents uncompromising performance, optimal efficiency and unrivalled sustainability and will be the fastest Formula E car to date.

Specially designed with performance at the fore, the Gen3 is lighter than its predecessors and by producing up to 350kW of power, will have a top speed of over 200mph.

The Gen3 will also be the first Formula car to sport both front and rear powertrains and will have 600kW regenerative capabilities as a result – double that of the current Gen2 car.

As such, a minimum of 40% of all energy used within a race distance will be produced by regenerative braking while, with an electric motor that achieves 95% efficiency, the Gen3 will be the most energy-efficient racing car in the world.

With 600kW ultra-high-speed charging during races – almost double the energy of the world’s most advanced commercial charger – Formula E’s next generation will also develop charging technologies as the series continues to revolutionize the automotive industry.

A Radical Future

Combining the Gen3’s enhanced performance with its radical fighter jet-inspired design, the vehicle is lightweight and compact to ensure agility in wheel-to-wheel combat on track.

Sustainability is also at the heart of the car and while battery cells will be reused and recycled, for the first time in history, bodywork will be made using linen and recycled carbon fibre and will feature materials from retired Gen2 cars.

ROKiT Venturi Racing will accelerate into this new era in partnership with Maserati, which will become the first Italian brand to race in Formula E.

Edoardo Mortara, ROCKiT Venturi Racing Team car driver state:

 “In terms of technical innovation, on paper the Gen3 car looks very impressive. It should mark a massive step forward performance-wise in comparison to the current Gen2 and the car has quite a striking appearance. As a driver we are always hunting for the edge - extra grip, increased performance and the optimal package so I’m looking forward to seeing how the car handles and how competitive it will be on track.”
