By winning the British Formula 3 title, Jean-Eric Vergne catapulted himself into the Toro Rosso cockpit at the start of the 2012 Formula 1 season. Despite good results - Vergne was always on a par with or even better than his teammates, including Daniel Ricciardo - the racing team terminated its contract with the Paris-born racer after the 2014 season and replaced him with the then 17-year-old Max Verstappen.

Just three weeks after his Formula 1 retirement, Vergne competed for Andretti in a Formula E race for the first time in Uruguay and promptly put the car on pole position in his first qualifying session. After several podiums, fastest race laps and pole positions for Andretti and then Virgin, Vergne switched to the Chinese team Techeetah in 2016, in which the Frenchman initially even held shares himself.

At the end of his first season with the Renault customer team, Vergne took his first victory at the 2017 Montreal E-Prix. A year later, he won his first championship in the electric championship. In the following 2018/19 season as well - by then Techeetah had become a DS Automobiles factory team - "JEV" finished the championship in first place and was crowned Formula E's first "double champion". Together with his then teammate Andre Lotterer, he also gave DS Techeetah its first team championship. After three more years with the squad, he and the powertrain manufacturer switched to the former Dragon team in 2023, which now competes under the name DS Penske. He finished the 2023 season in fifth place overall with a race win in Hyderabad.
