After announcing its arrival into the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in 2017, Nissan partnered with seasoned Formula E outfit e.dams (formally racing partner of French manufacturer Renault) to become Nissan e.dams.
With three out of four teams' championship titles to its name, e.dams continues its journey in the series with the Japanese manufacturer.
Nissan is the first Japanese manufacturer to enter the series and is a world leader in the design and manufacture of all-electric cars. With over 365,000 Nissan LEAF vehicles sold since the model debuted in 2010, Nissan has made use of its existing EV experience to develop the all-new powertrain for its Formula E race car. In turn, the learnings from the track will shape the next generation of EVs from the Japanese car maker.
Racing for Nissan e.dams is Formula E veteran and former champion Sebastien Buemi alongside all-electric racing newcomer Alex Albon. With no track record in the series, it's all to play for as the team goes head to head with 10 other teams.
