Audi Sports have committed their partnership with Team ABT Schaeffler for this season but have big plans of having their own factory motorsport program for the start of next season 2017-2018.
“Electric mobility is one of the key topics in our industry,” says Dr. Stefan Knirsch, Member of the Board of Management, Technical Development, AUDI AG. “We intend to evolve into one of the leading premium car manufacturers in this field. By 2025, every fourth Audi should be an electric vehicle. The first model for this is planned to be an SUV we’re going to present in 2018. In the light of these plans, adapting our motorsport program and taking up a commitment in a fully electric racing series is only a logical move.”
Formula E season starts its electric motors in Hong Kong this October.
