Formula E battery

FIA Formula E decided to postpone its planned battery competition previously scheduled for the third season.

That means that all the teams will use cars with the same batteries, from a single manufacturer.

The new date for the battery competition is season five (2018/2019).

Until then, there will be new, improved battery for seasons three and four, probably from the same manufacturer - Williams Advanced Engineering - as in season one and two.

That also closes the doors for a bunch of other companies who had hoped to become a battery supplier next season.

In season five, every team in theory should be able to chose batteries from different manufacturers, which is one of the long-awaited, important changes needed to speed up technology developments.

Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E, commented:

“For years three and four it’s going to be a new battery, but the same for everyone. new design from Williams, in principle.”

“It’s not signed but it’s really looking like we’re going in that direction.”
