New Zealand's Mitch Evans has claimed his second career win in an incident-packed Formula E race at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico on Sunday (NZ time). 

Evans dominated the race after taking the lead from pole-sitter Andre Lotterer early on before cruising to victory.

The pair did make contact at the opening corner before Evans pulled away into the lead where he never faced a genuine challenge.

Only 15 of the 24 cars that started the race finished, with Kiwi compatriot finishing 14th. 

The Auckland man crossed the line 4.2s clear of  Portugal's Antonio Felix da Cost with Switzerland's Sebastien Buemi in third. 

The 25-year-old's other victory came last season in Rome. His latest win sees him climb to the top of the Formula E drivers standings with 47 points after four races, one point clear of the UK's Alexander Sims. 

The next race of the season takes place at Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan in Morocco.
