Formula E reveals Gen 2 Evo car for 2020

Formula E has updated its Gen 2 racer for its upcoming season, with a range of body add-ons designed to make for a more attractive grid. The EVO will be revealed at the Geneva motor show, and features a new front wing, a new fin behind the driver, and a fresh rear wing. Unlike Formula 1, where teams invest millions developing their own aerodynamics packages, the entire Formula E grid has the same bodywork fitted to their cars.
