The specs sound good
- 250kW front and 350kW rear regen
- 350kW motor (rear)
- no rear brakes
- smaller and lighter than Gen2
Not that any of the tracks they go to will a vmax of 200mph be possible. Also (embarrassingly) lighter than the 2022 F1 car.
Where´s the weight? Can´t find it
Chassis tender document. Total (including driver) is 780kg. F1 2022 will be 792kg.

Thanks!

I guess the weight reduction comes from the much more powerful regen so they can use a smaller battery

Any official data about the new battery?

No official spec on the car as far as I'm aware. I read something about 40% more regen in race thought!? There's more power but the capacity of the battery will be the same. It's more energy dense.

Even if it was possible to reach 200mph, why would they? They're just increasingly using more power, and thus available energy to punch a hole in the air.

Do they have winter testing in FormulaE?

I've decided to give FE one more chance and watch at least the first 2-3 races but it would be nice to know a bit more about the teams and cars.
