Surprisingly, Formula E Gen3 has been unveiled in Monaco

Before seeing it take to the track in 2022-2023, the next generation of Formula E was unveiled in Monaco, as part of the sixth E-Prix of the season, which is being held this weekend in the Principality.

Seen on a first teaser a few months ago, the Formula E Gen3 can be discovered this time in more detail, thus exposing a completely innovative futuristic design.

If the lines of the car are new and will certainly be talked about, the most awaited revolution is under the bonnet, with a new power unit, capable of propelling the single-seater to 320 km/h, the fastest speed ever reached in this category. The 350 kW engine powertrain will be complemented by a second 250 kW engine placed at the front, thus doubling the regenerative capacity of the car to compete in approximately 40% of the race thanks to the recovered energy.
