Nissan, the only Japanese brand on the grid, confirms its committed to the Gen3 era of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, from Season 9.
Last season’s runners-up in the team standings, Nissan are represented on track by Season 2 Formula E Champion Sébastien Buemi and 2020 Berlin E-Prix winner (Round 10) Oliver Rowland.
As part of its goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050, Nissan intends to electrify all new Nissan vehicle offerings by the early 2030s. With Formula E as a proving ground, the manufacturer aims to bring transfer knowledge and technology from the racetrack to the road to develop better electric vehicles for customers.
The work that Formula E and the FIA have done to shape the Gen3 era focuses on delivering a new generation of progress both as a sport, reaffirming Formula E’s position as the pinnacle of electric racing, and in the future of electric mobility. Gen3 will bring performance and efficiency benefits including more powerful, lighter cars, faster charging and cost controls, all increasing the competitive and unpredictable racing Formula E has become known for.
