Formula E will operate a new ‘Extreme E’ electric SUV series that is set to racethrough challenging locations and terrains such as the Himalayas and the Arctic. Expected to launch in 2020, the series has been presented to manufacturers to elicit their interest and participation. There are specifications for chassis from the organisers but the motors and fuselage and other elements can be designed by the racing teams as long as the final vehicle resembles road production models. The project is currently being run by McLaren Formula 1 sporting director Gil de Ferran.
