Joining the ABB FIA Formula E Championship ahead of Panasonic Jaguar Racing's debut season, Evans remains with the British racing outfit alongside Nelson Piquet Jn for his third Formula E campaign.
Starting his all-electric racing career in 2015 ahead of Panasonic Jaguar Racing's debut season, the New Zealand driver's first season was marked by a fine fourth place finish in Mexico. Remaining with the team for a second season (2017/18), Evans put in a number of promising performances including Jaguar's first podium finish in Hong Kong and a Julius Baer Pole Position in Zurich. Despite no overall win in the series, Evans outdrove his teammate Nelson Piquet Jn over the course of the season, finishing two places above the Brazilian and sixth overall.
Evans started his motorsport career in karts at the age of six and won the NZ Grand Prix at the age of 16. Mentored by seasoned racer Mark Webber, the young driver went on to win the 2012 GP3 title. Moving to GP2 in 2013 and at aged just 18, while still a rookie, he became the youngest driver in GP2 history to stand on the podium after finishing third in Sepang, Malaysia.
For the 2018/19 season, Evans remains with the British racing squad alongside Piquet Jn. Both drivers pilot the team's Gen2 Jaguar I-Type 3 as both he and Jaguar challenge for their maiden win and the championship title.
