The Nissan e.dams team will make its official (on track) debut this week…. testing at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo Valencia Spain.
This is in preparation for the start of the new ABB FIA Formula E championship… which begins on the 15th of December.
Nissan is the first Japanese company to enter Formula E. They will be using all their knowledge from producing, and selling, more than 365,000 Nissan LEAF cars since 2010.
Roel de Vries, Nissan’s global head of brand and marketing said:
“Formula E represents the performance side of Nissan Intelligent Mobility – our vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. As the world leader in delivering electric cars to consumers, we’re eager to work with a renowned energy company like Shell to promote zero-emission mobility through this championship.”
Sebastien Buemi (2015 and 2016 Formula E champion) and his teammate Alex Albon will drive for the Nissan e.dams team.
