All but one of the 18 places on this year's MotoE grid have been confirmed, following the publication of the 2021 electric-bike entry list.

Reigning champion Jordi Torres returns with the Pons team, which expands to two riders this season, the only TBA on the entry list being the Spaniard's new team-mate.

2019 title winner and last year's runner-up Matteo Ferrari continues with Gresini for a third campaign, while last year's double race winning 'rookie' Dominique Aegerter continues at Dynavolt Intact GP.

One MotoE race winner that will be changing teams is Eric Granado, who switches from Avintia to One Energy Racing (Sepang), in place of Jakub Kornfeil.

Also remaining on the grid for 2021 are Alessandro Zaccone (who swaps Gresini for Pramac), Mattia Casadei (SIC58), Lukas Tulovic (Tech3), Maria Herrera (Aspar) and Xavier Cardelus (Avintia).

Headlining the list of MotoE rookies is former MotoGP rider Yonny Hernandez, who returns to the Pramac team he rode for in the premier-class during 2014 and 2015.

Hikari Okubo will be putting his WorldSSP experience to the test in a new challenge with Ajo, while Miquel Pons and Kevin Zannoni join LCR.

Fermin Aldeguer will race as Herrera’s team-mate at Aspar (replacing Alejandro Medina) while Andrea Mantovani arrives alongside Ferrari at Gresini (in place of Zaccone).

Corentin Perolari joins Tulovic at the all-new Tech3 line-up, with Portuguese rider Andre Pires set for Avintia.
