The Gen 2 era

The Gen2 car – officially known as the Spark SRT05e – made its competitive debut in the 2018/19 season of the FIA Formula E World Championship.

With almost double the energy storage capacity of its first-generation predecessor, the Gen2 signalled a key technological breakthrough in Formula E, with drivers able to race at higher speeds and over further distances than ever before.

For Season 7, all 12 Formula E teams will use identical cars although, since 2015, the championship has allowed teams to develop their own powertrain solutions. 

After partnering with Mercedes-Benz in 2019, ROKiT Venturi Racing will again benefit from the German marque’s engineering expertise in 2021, using full powertrain systems [powertrain, cooling system, rear frame, rear suspension, dampers, software, onboard electronics, and wires] designed and developed by Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth, UK.
