Formula E releases teaser images of new car
Formula E has released a short series of teaser images ahead of the launch of its new car in March.
Launched in 2013, Formula E has used the same car, the Spark SRT_01E, throughout its first four seasons, but is set for a brand-new chassis for the 2018/19 campaign.
The new generation electric-powered racer, which will once again be built by Spark, is set to be unveiled at the Geneva motor show on March 6.
Teaser images of the new car show a heavily revised front and rear end as well as, in line with other FIA open-wheel categories, the addition of a halo device around the cockpit.
It’s the latest in a series of announcements for the category, which has begun attracting manufacturer interest.
