New Audi e-tron all set for Formula E 2019/20 season

With the new Formula E season just around the corner, the Audi Formula E squad showcased the new e-tron FE06 race car ahead of its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

What’s new with the Audi e-tron FE06

The Audi e-tron FE06 is packed with plenty of visible carbon fiber and a bright orange livery. Appearing more aggressive than the previous Audi Formula E challengers, the new e-tron is expected to challenge for the title outright in the new season.

The 2019/20 season is set to kick off at the Ad Diriyah (Saudi Arabia) on 22 – 23 November. Orange is the new color for the e-tron FE06; the orange hue takes cues from the road-going color of the road-going Audi e-tron.

The Audi Formula E continues to rely on its long-standing partners: Besides technology partner Schaeffler, who together with Audi is responsible for the development of the powertrain, HYLA, ITK Engineering, the LGT Group, KUKA, MASCOT, Riello UPS and Würth Elektronik also remain on board. Sonax joins in this season as a partner. The brand known for its car care products has been closely linked to motorsport for decades.

Last season, the drivers Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi achieved the runner-up position for Audi in the hard-fought team’s championship. Abt and di Grassi will again assume their roles as pilots in the new season.
