Evans showed strong pace in practice, finishing second in both the morning sessions, and carried that through into qualifying with a stunning lap to pip Techeetah’s Andre Lotterer, who scored his best qualifying position in Formula E with second place.
Championship challenger Sam Bird will start in third for DS Virgin Racing. He missed the chance to take pole after clipping the wall during the superpole shootout.
The Dragon Racing pair of Jérôme d’Ambrosio and José María López made a surprise appearance in superpole, and carried their strong pace from free practice two to qualify in fourth and fifth.
López, however, will take a three-place grid drop for the race after failing to reduce his speed sufficiently under yellow flag conditions in free practice one.
The Audi pair of Lucas di Grassi and Daniel Abt both missed out on a place in the superpole shootout, and could only manage sixth and ninth place after finishing one-two at the previous race in Berlin.
Nico Prost put in his best qualifying performance of the season, and will start the race from eight place, just one place and 0.042s behind teammate and home favourite Sebastien Buemi.
Mahindra’s Felix Rosenqvist qualified in 10th place, and missed out on a place in the superpole shootout for the third race in a row since taking pole in Rome.
Title favourite Jean-Eric Vergne will have to fight through the field from 17th place – his worst qualifying position since Punta del Este in season two.
Vergne finished slowest of the first group with a lap he described as “a nightmare” and said that his car “was not the same” as the one that put him in seventh place for both the morning practice sessions.
NIO’s Oliver Turvey made contact with the wall on his lap, and will start the race from last. It is the first time the British driver will start a race outside the top 10 this season.
