Formula-E Team is delighted to announce that it will become a manufacturer team for Season Five onwards as it partners with (DS).


 “We’re very excited about teaming up with DS Automobiles as we enter a new era of with the Gen 2 car. DS has extensive experience in having been a championship manufacturer since Season Two and finishing within the top three each season”, said Edmund Chu, President, TECHEETAH Formula-E Team.


“We’ve had some brilliant battles on track this season with DS and we can’t wait to combine the wealth of experience and expertise of arguably two of the best teams in the paddock, as TECHEETAH becomes a manufacturer team for the first time”. 


“I’d also like to thank Renault for the last two years, they have given us an incredibly reliable powertrain, resulting in our driver, Jean-Éric Vergne winning the Driver’s Title and the team almost winning the Team’s Championship, only missing out by two points”.


“It’s been an incredible feat by the whole team. We’re the small customer team that could take on the giants, a team where anything is possible. This is the spirit that we’re taking into our new partnership with DS and we are looking forward to a very competitive time together. Everyone in the team is hungry for the challenge and will be working even harder next year to clinch both Championships”. 


“Our involvement in Formula E is an integral part of DS Automobiles’ commitment to the electrification of our model line-up. The DS E-TENSE FE 19’s development began several months ago with the objective of being in a position to challenge for the top step of the podium from the opening race of the 2018/2019 campaign.



Full details of the partnership, including logo, livery, management and driver line up will be revealed on 1 October 2018.
