A new era of performance

The Gen3 Evo isn’t just about raw speed. This is a testament to the incredible progress in EV technology, with a performance gain of around 2% compared to its predecessor. This translates to a qualifying lap at the Monaco circuit almost two seconds faster.

The secret? A combination of all-wheel drive (AWD) available during the most intense moments of the race, an aggressive body kit for improved aerodynamics and Hankook iON tires that provide 5-10% more grip using 35% of recycled materials.

Sustainability at the heart

But speed is only part of the problem. The Gen3 Evo is the world’s only zero-carbon race car in the world’s first zero-carbon sport. It’s not just about racing; it’s running with a conscience. The regenerative braking system is so efficient that it generates almost 50% of the energy needed for a race during the race itself. With over 90% engine efficiency compared to around 50% of internal combustion engines, the Gen3 Evo is all about efficiency.

Innovate for the future

The technological innovations don’t stop there. Formula E designed the Gen3 Evo with the future in mind, with ultra-fast charging capabilities that enable a high-speed charge of 600 kW in 30 seconds mid-race. The powertrain and software engineering are continually optimized, ensuring the car remains at the forefront of electric racing technology.

Envision Racing has won the title of Formula E World Champions by winning the 2022-2023 season. This victory was particularly notable as it marked the debut of the GEN3 car, demonstrating Envision Racing’s exceptional adaptability to the cutting-edge technology of Formula E. As it prepares for the upcoming season, the team prepares diligently to continue its success with GEN3. Evo, aiming to set a new standard of excellence in electric motorsport.
