Nissan bolsters EV push with commitment to Formula E racing until 2030

Updated Apr 01, 2024 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

This longer commitment to EV racing reinforces the brand’s Ambition 2030 plans.

Nissan announces that it is now committed to the ABB FIA Formula E all-electric World Championship series until at least 2030. This was announced via a conference held before the maiden Tokyo E-Prix which was also organized in partnership with the Japanese car maker.

This means that Nissan will remain an official Formula E race car manufacturer and competitor from Season 13 (2026 to 2027) until Season 16 (2029 to 2030). This thus covers the point when the racing series switches from the Gen 3 to the Gen 4 all-electric Formula E cars.

According to Nissan, working as a constructor in Formula E will allow it to better improve and develop its electric vehicle technologies. Under Gen 4, the all-electric open-wheel race cars used in this FIA World Championship will feature regeneration capacities of up to 700 kW and increased output of up to 600 kW (800 horsepower). More safety features will likewise be developed for this all-new generation of Formula E cars.  

The new commitment also ratifies Nissan’s older manufacturer agreement with Formula E. Thanks to this, the Japanese car maker now has the current longest-ever motorsport commitment to an FIA-sanctioned World Championship racing series.

In going beyond sustainable racing, Nissan’s commitment to Formula E until 2030 also falls in line with its “Ambition 2030” electrification push. For those unaware, these are a set of objectives that will eventually transform Nissan into a fully-fledged EV manufacturer. 

As a part of this program, the brand is set to introduce a total of 34 electric models between 2024 and 2030. These upcoming EV models are projected to cover 60 percent of the brand’s global sales by the end of the current decade. Plus, the program will also advance Nissan’s push to become a more environmentally friendly manufacturer as well. 

“We’re extremely pleased to continue our involvement in Formula E until 2030. In addition to bringing excitement and an on-track spectacle to our fans, our participation in the series will make a significant contribution to our electrification goals set out in our Ambition 2030 plans,” said Nissan Motor CEO Makato Uchida.

“The technological breakthrough that we make on the track will provide great insights to the development of our future products. We’re excited to see the future of electric racing unfold and to keep working towards a sustainable world for everyone,” Uchida added. 

With that said, we can’t wait to see what Nissan will cook up thanks to what it has learned by working with Formula E cars.
