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 inaugural season took place over 6 rounds between July and November 2019 with 12 teams fielding a grid of 18 riders. The season start was originally planned for May, but had to be postponed because of a fire at the Jerez test in March where all competition bikes were destroyed. Italian rider Matteo Ferrari from the Trentino Gresini Moto E team became the first MotoE champion.
The second season was contested over 7 rounds at 3 different circuits. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic the season had to be postponed until July when it started at Jerez. The season champion was Jordi Torres in his first season in the electric class, after achieving four podium finishes including one win. Runners-up Matteo Ferrari and Dominique Aegerter also tallied four podiums including two wins each, but suffered from retirements and low classifications at the remaining races.
