Under working title 'hyperboost' Formula E is preparing a set of new regulations, which could be implemented for the 2018/2019 season of electric championship, which will also see an introduction of Gen2 racing cars.

The biggest change or improvement among others will be more efficient batteries, which will allow cars to cover the entire race distance without the need for drivers to swap their cars in the middle of the race.

There will also be changes in the 'hyperboost' system, which will also carry a new name. Not yet confirmed proposal states, that after drivers will run over a clearly amarked dedicated zone 10 meters in length, they will be able to activate higher power. It was also suggested, that the location of zone will vary for each circuit and that hyperboost will become available only two laps into the game and shut down for the last two laps. Drivers will also have to activate a switch in their cars, which will automatically activate the 'hyperboost' when crossing the designated zone and keep the increased power of 225 kW for next four minutes, which will bring them approximately one second per lap.
