GEN 2: A New Era

The Gen 2 car made its competitive debut in the 2018/19 season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

Featuring almost double the energy storage capacity of its first-generation predecessor, the Gen2 enables teams and drivers to complete an entire race at higher speeds, without making a mid-race car swap as seen in previous campaigns.

All 12 Formula E teams will use identical cars for Season 6 – built by Spark Racing Technologies with assistance from Dallara.

Since Season 2, however, the championship has allowed manufacturers to develop their own cars with powertrain solutions.

For the sixth season of the championship, Venturi benefits from Mercedes-Benz technology [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.
