Reigning Formula E Champions DS Techeetah shows off new livery for 2019/20 season

With the new Formula E season just around the corner, DS Techeetah Team has unveiled their 2019/20 car livery in black and gold. The black/gold liveried DS E-Tense FE20 car is out to defend the titles from last season with Formula E champion Jean-Eric Vergne.  The season kicks off on 22 November in Saudi Arabia.

Techeetach team, owned by SECA Shanghai, is a Chinese racing team in Formula E. They won the 2017/2018 drivers’ title with Jean-Éric and together with André Lotterer, the team secured second place in the teams’ rankings in the 2017/2018 season.

DS E-Tense FE20

Jean-Eric’s car will bear two laurel wreaths to symbolize the two titles, while his helmet has two stars (driver titles).

The DS E-Tense FE20 livery is created by the DS Design Studio of DS Automobiles, From a technical point of view, the FE20 is the fruit of the development work based on the qualities of the double championship winning DS E-Tense FE19.

DS Performance Director Xavier Mestelan Pinon said, “Our engineers have optimised most of the elements by further developing our winning concept rather than completely rethinking the car. The engine, the inverter and the transfer case have evolved, but the deeper changes are in the heart of the embedded systems. All this ambitious research and development work aims to offer the drivers a car that allows them to fight to win and defend both titles.”

“In the detail of its livery design, it is possible to see that the pattern is constructed from many of our cheetah head logos, which also nods to our continued efforts in supporting The Big Cat Sanctuary’s fight in saving the cheetahs and other big cats. A topic that is more pressing than ever and a cause that is especially close to our hearts,” DS Techeetah Chief Commercial Officer Keith Smout added.

The excitement of the Formula E begins third week of November at the Riyadh Circuit.
