Details are limited, but the agreement calls for 42 Formula E cars to be built for the beginning of the first season. They will be called the “Spark-Renault.”

In the coming months, engineers from Renault Sport F1 and Renault Sport Technologies will collaborate with Spark Racing Technology to optimize the performance of the car's powertrain. They hope this will significantly increase the safety and reliability of the car.

He added, "Formula E is an exciting opportunity to demonstrate the excellence and the reliability of our EV solutions.”
