It will also be the first car in its class to be powered on both axles: 250 kW for the front wheels and 350 kW for the rear wheels. Including the energy recovered during the braking process, the driver will have up to 600 kW of power, more than double that of the 2nd generation cars.

The 350 kW (470 hp) electric power pack is smaller and lighter than the Gen2, and the top speed will increase to 320 km / h.

Mohammed Ben SulayemFIA President: “We are delighted to confirm the participation of seven global manufacturers in Formula E third generation cars and look forward to fighting each other.

Formula E has always been at the forefront of technology as a testing ground for future mobility. An example of this is the Gen3 machine. We are confident that the new era will open an exciting chapter in this series of electric races.
