Formula E: New GEN3 Evo race car to be revealed ahead of Monaco E-Prix


With the promise of improved performance characteristics among the upgrades to the current GEN3 car, already hailed as the fastest, lightest, most powerful and most efficient electric race car to have ever been made, Formula E and the FIA have announced that the brand-new GEN3 Evo race car will be unveiled at an exclusive event in Monaco ahead of this weekend’s E-Prix.  

The big reveal is set to take place at an exclusive evening launch event in the Principality on Thursday 25th April, just two days before the seventh edition of the Monaco E-Prix gets underway on Saturday 27th April. 

Very little is known about the changes and upgrades that have been made to the GEN3 race car, but sources say, “The all-electric championship is set to raise the bar even higher with a race car that will be pushed to the limit by the series’ world-class drivers across Seasons 11 and 12.” 

The GEN3 Evo race car is described as “an evolution of the current GEN3 race car… with improved performance characteristics that will highlight Formula E and the FIA’s role in pioneering technology and sustainable motorsport”. 

Major changes to the bodywork, increased power capabilities and a possible four-wheel drive option are among the rumoured updates to the future car of teams that include the Monaco-based Maserati MSG Racing outfit. 

Jeff Dodds, Chief Executive Officer at Formula E, says, “As we prepare to unveil the GEN3 Evo, we’re not just launching a car; we’re continuing to shape the future of racing. This next iteration not only exemplifies our dedication to innovation and pushing the limits of technology, but also enhances our commitment to delivering exhilarating, competitive racing for our fans. We are setting new standards in performance that will intensify on-track rivalries and fan engagement, keeping us at the forefront of global motorsport.”
