MotoE™ is back as the season kicks off in Jerez, with seven races scheduled for this season

MotoE, officially the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, is a class of motorcycle racing that uses only electric motorcycles. The series is sanctioned by the FIM and the inaugural season in 2019 was due to support MotoGP at five of the European circuits. A fire in March 2019 involving recharging batteries destroyed the special facility and the race machines at Circuito de Jerez, Spain. The opening two race events, intended to be at Jerez on 5 May and Le Mans, France on 19 May, were cancelled, with a new schedule announced in late March of six races at four venues starting in July.

The series currently uses the Energica Ego Corsa motorcycle, manufactured by Energica Motor Company.
