ABB and Formula E are teaming up to champion e-mobility for a sustainable future.

Since its first race in Beijing in September 2014, Formula E has established itself as the number one all-electric international motor sport.

In the next level of development, technology giant ABB is bringing its name and innovation and technology leadership to the series, which will be now known as the “ABB FIA Formula E Championship”.

Formula E serves as a competitive platform to develop and test e-mobility-relevant electrification and digitalization technologies, helping refine the design and functionality of electric vehicles and infrastructure as well as the associated digital platforms.

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

“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,” said ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer.

Alejandro Agag, founder and CEO of Formula E, added: “This is a historic day for Formula E and I’m honored to welcome the global technology leader ABB as the title partner of Formula E, with its background and expertise in the field of electrification and digital technologies.”
