Nissan extends Formula E commitment until 2026

Japanese carmaker Nissan has extended its commitment to the electric racing series Formula E up to and including the 2025/2026 season, making it the third manufacturer after DS Automobiles and Mahindra to field one of the new "Gen3" cars.

From the ninth Formula E season (2022/2023), the third generation of racing cars will be used, which are faster and more powerful than their predecessors. In addition, the Gen3 cars feature recuperation on the front axle for the first time. You can find out more about the Gen3 cars here.

Nissan had taken over the Formula E entry from alliance partner Renault for the 2018/2019 season, and like the French, the Japanese are also working with the e.dams team. In the first two races of the current Season 7, Nissan has already scored 14 points.

"We want to develop electric vehicles that change the way we connect and get around," said Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta. "They inspire us to create a more sustainable society. Formula E helps Nissan bring excitement, energy and environmental benefits to the forefront and introduce this vision of the future to an ever-growing, young and diverse audience."
