Salvador Duran has switched to Trulli Formula E ahead of the second season of the all-electric series after parting ways with Aguri.

The former Formula Renault 3.5 race winner will team-mate Vitantonio Liuzzi and is relishing to prospect of testing Trulli's new powertrain - the Motomatica JT-01 - at the pre-season test event at Donington Park this week.

"I'm very happy to join the Trulli team and I'm super excited about the new season and Trulli's new powertrain Motomatica JT-01," said Duran. "I'm hoping that we can be contending for the front positions and can't wait to do my first test."

Duran replaced Katherine Legge at the Aguri Formula E team for the third round of the inaugural championship and remained with the squad for the rest of the season, eventually finishing 21st in the drivers' standings with a highlight of sixth place in Moscow.

"We are very happy to have Salvador on board," Lucio Cavuto, Trulli team principal, said. "He's a driver that we were looking at last year, and we have been very impressed with his improvements during the championship.

"Once we introduced him to our project and he saw how hard we're working and that our project is very ambitious. We're really look forward to having him in our car and in the team and the fact that he knows the category will give him a lot as we won't be able to give him a lot of time in the car during pre-season testing."

Despite his experience, Trulli and his team struggled in the first season of Formula E competition, scoring just 17 points and finishing last in the team standings
