The longest track of the season, the Marrakesh circuit features several relatively long straights, facilitating high speeds approaching 200km/h.

In the heart of the city of love, the Formula E racing teams will go head to head for the second time in April 2018. With the magnificent Eiffel tower in the background, and encompassing the historical Les Invalides, the Circuit des Invalides has possibly the most impressive setting of any Formula E race. The track has some quick areas, principally the two straights and some fast corners, as well as some really tight slow corners. This contrast has ensured lots of thrilling overtaking action in the last two seasons, and likely will again in Season 4.

The Berlin ePrix is back on the racing calendar again for the fourth time running in season 4. The track returns to its original location at Tempelhof airport, but this year with a redesigned circuit layout. Two long straights provide great opportunity for overtaking and it is expected that Berlin will be a fast race. The airfield track surface also provides interesting dynamics compared to the surfaces at the other ePrixs. 

Zurich

Zurich

Track length: TBC
No. of turns: TBC
Season 3 Winner: None
Season 3 Lap record: None

The FIA Formula E championship makes its way to Zurich for the first time this season. This is a historic event, as it is the first major formula race to take place in Switzerland since circuit racing was banned in the country in 1955, following the Le Mans disaster of that year. A change in the law allowing all-electric racing has paved the way for Formula E to take to the streets in Zurich again.

New York City

New York City

When: July 14th-15th 2018
Track length: 1.95km
No. of turns: 10
Season 3 Winner: Sam Bird
Season 3 Lap record: Maro Engel - 1:03.883, Daniel Abt - 1:03.898

The Brooklyn street circuit in New York city takes place on the waterfront, just across from the watchful gaze of the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island. The Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn bridge dominate the view in the penultimate race of Season 4, on a track that has been described as one of the more difficult circuits in Formula E. This penultimate race is a double header, meaning New York may well be make or break for the top teams in the running for the championship title.

Montreal

Montreal

When: July 28th-29th 2018
Track length: 2.75km
No. of turns: 14
Season 3 Winners: Lucas di Grassi, Jean-Eric Vergne
Season 3 Lap record: Luca Duval - 1:24.536, Nico Prost - 1:23.444

Season 4 finishes with a double header just over the border from the New York race, in the Canadian city of Montréal. The circuit for the Hydro-Québec Montréal ePrix has a much greater change in elevation compared to the other, flatter Formula E racetracks. This, combined with being significantly longer than most of the other circuits at a length of almost 3km, allows for high speeds and interesting race dynamics.
