Formula E Gen3 car unveil

Will lighter, greener, faster Gen3 deliver on Formula E's many promises?

With a fighter-jet inspired design, revamped technical specifications and a new tyre supplier, Formula E's Gen3 car is set to shake up the series. But can it deliver on all of the promises that Formula E has set out to ensure that manufacturers consider the outlay on going racing in an all-electric arena worthwhile?

In front of a crowd of journalists, cameras, and team personnel, the Gen3 Formula E car flaunted the Monaco Yacht Club's dress code and disrobed on stage, leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination.

From the top down, it resembles a dart, harkening back to the days when the Brabham BT52 reigned supreme in Formula 1. It's deceptively simple, stitching its new mod-cons into a fighter-jet inspired design (according to Formula E's PR team) that once again turns away from a 'normal' single-seater aesthetic. As Formula E's fans have become so accustomed to the Gen2 machine, the departure in design terms might take some getting used to – but there's more than just the visuals to consider.
