The evolution of Formula E: Gen1, Gen2 and the future

While the ABB FIA Formula E Championship is just six seasons old, the on-track technology is ever-evolving and has undergone revolutionary changes in the last six years. In Season 1, back in 2014, Formula E ushered in a revolution with our all-electric open-wheel Gen1 car – a first of its kind in motorsport. In the six short years since, we’ve waved goodbye to that initial era of mid-race car swaps and welcomed the next step-change in technology for Formula E with Gen2 in Season 5. Before the leap to Gen2, Gen1 itself saw a number of changes. On the road, the number of electric car models has increased by six times since Formula E’s first season, with more than 175 now available in Europe. As technology develops, electric cars will be able to go faster and further.
