DS TECHEETAH REVEALS THE DS E-TENSE FE20 FOR THE 2019/2020 ABB FIA FORMULA E CHAMPIONSHIP

Paris, 10 October 2019

The reigning ABB FIA Formula E champions, DS TECHEETAH, has today revealed its Season Six livery.

For the 2019/2020 season, the now famous black and gold livery strengthen its sporty look thanks to a frame reminiscent of its colours and icon, spread elegantly on several places of the car.

The championship winning technology will also bear two laurel wreaths and the car of the reigning two-fold Formula E champion, Jean-Éric Vergne, will be decorated with two golden stars to celebrate his both driver titles. With this livery reworked by the Design Studio of DS Automobiles, the DS E-TENSE FE20 embodies more boldness and the spirit of performance than ever before. From a technical point of view, the DS E-TENSE FE20 is the fruit of the development work based on the qualities of the double championship winning DS E-TENSE FE19.

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

Keith Smout, DS TECHEETAH Chief Commercial Officer : “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 whilst fighting for more titles. If you look closely, you can see that the pattern is made out of our cheetah head logo, 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 close to our hearts.”
