Nissan completed its Formula E launch tour in Los Angeles with an event led by Margot Robbie, the company's electric vehicle and sustainability ambassador, as Nissan enters the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. First revealed at the Geneva Motor Show to high acclaim, followed by its U.S. debut at the New York Auto Show, the Nissan Formula E car was shown to an array of VIP guests in L.A.
Robbie said - "I've already seen many of Nissan's initiatives, designed to bring cleaner air to roads and fairer access to power across the globe. And now, we have this – a fantastic new Formula E car," said Robbie. "I'm excited to see how it will help Nissan develop its EV offering further and bring new and exciting technologies to communities across the world."
Nissan's entry into the electric street racing series coincides with the launch of the new generation Formula E car, featuring striking new aerodynamics and a whole new battery and powertrain package. The Nissan Global Design team in Japan designed the livery.
Nissan is the first Japanese automotive brand to enter Formula E. The entry is the latest expression of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's vision for changing how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.
"Nissan is proud to be a leader when it comes to ingenuity and innovation in EV technology, with more than 300,000 Nissan LEAF vehicles sold worldwide. So taking on the challenge of Formula E is a natural extension, and we've been proud to have Margot Robbie helping us take that message to a global audience," said Daniele Schillaci, executive vice president of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
In October, Robbie announced three new Nissan sustainability pilot projects that aim to harness the skills and ingenuity of Nissan's global workforce to improve energy access and disaster relief. One is to build a microgrid system to provide power for local communities in developing countries that don't have sustainable access to energy; another seeks to partner with organizations in vulnerable areas to find ways that Nissan and its technologies can help during natural disasters.
Season five of the Formula E series is expected to begin in December 2018 and will visit major cities around the world including New York, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Zurich and Hong Kong.
