DS E-TENSE FE20 Formula E Car Shows Its New Black & Gold Livery

DS TECHEETAH has just unveiled its new Formula E racer, the FE20, which from a technical standpoint is based on last season’s title-winning FE19 car.

For the new 2019/2020 racing season, the black and gold livery looks to further strengthen the car’s sporty appearance, while also referencing key design aspects. The livery was created by the DS Design Studio of DS Automobiles.

“The team has used the experience that allowed us to win both titles to further develop the potential of the car. Our engineers have optimised most of the elements by further developing our winning concept rather than completely rethinking the car,” said DS Performance exec, Xavier Mestelan.

“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 coming season that starts on 22 November in Riyadh.”

DS TECHEETAH’s racer is now the latest Formula E car to be unveiled ahead of the 2019/2020 season debut, which will take place in Saudi Arabia on November 22. Speaking of which, this new season also welcomes the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, who already came out with the EQ Silver Arrow 01 and the 99X respectively.

“The DS E-TENSE FE20 is a design evolution from our championship winning car. We wanted to stay true to our past and continue to celebrate and honour our success by keeping the now iconic gold and black livery, while fighting for more 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,” added the team’s chief commercial officer, Keith Smout.
