The FIA released the official list of the 11 teams set to compete in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship’s fifth season on Tuesday.

It sees the grid size increase from 20 to 22 cars for the first time, with HWA joining the field as the 11th team in the 2018-19 campaign.

Several teams will run under different banners to last season, including Andretti becoming branded as BMW I Andretti Motorsport in light of the German automaker’s increased involvement in the program.

Techeetah is listed as DS Techeetah, with the Chinese outfit gaining factory support from DS Automobiles, while e.dams will run as Nissan e.dams, replacing Renault.

Venturi customer team HWA is listed simply as HWA for its first season in the championship, ahead of an increased Mercedes involvement in 2019-20.

The full entry list, including drivers, will be published by Nov. 16.
