By joining forces, ABB and Formula E will be ideally positioned to push the boundaries of e-mobility.

Commenting on the partnership, Ulrich Spiesshofer, said:

“We are extremely excited to partner with Formula E in writing the future of e-mobility. Today, two pioneers are uniting. ABB and Formula E are a natural fit at the forefront of the latest electrification and digital technologies. Together, we will write the next phase of this exciting sports activity and foster high-performance teams. Together, we will write the future- one electrifying race at a time.”
Numerous manufacturing giants- including Jaguar- have begun to participate in Formula E in recent years.
The ABB FIA Formula E championship was first conceived in 2012, by Alejandro Agag (Founder and CEO of Formula E), with the first championship taking place in 2014.

Numerous manufacturing giants- including Mercedes Benz, BMW, Porsche and Jaguar- have announced plans to participate in the series in recent years, demonstrating the increasing impact and influence the electrification agenda is having upon the motor industry.

The fourth edition of the series will see 10 teams and 20 drivers compete in 11 cities spanning five continents in the fight to be crowned ABB Formula E champion.
