Factory Audi LMP1 driver Loic Duval will make his Formula E debut with Dragon Racing in Miami this weekend.
The 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours winner and World Endurance co-champion replaces ex-IndyCar racer Oriol Servia alongside Jerome D'Ambrosio in the team.
Servia has finished in the points in every FE race so far but never higher than seventh, leaving him 12th in the standings at present.
Though Duval has yet to test the FE car, he has current single-seater experience having continued to race in Japan's Super Formula alongside his WEC commitments with Audi.
The 32-year-old Frenchman is the second FE newcomer confirmed for Miami so far, with Andretti having brought in ex-Formula 1 racer Scott Speed from its Global Rallycross team to partner Jean-Eric Vergne for the first American round.
