Nissan Formula E

Nissan made its all-electric racing debut in Season 5 (2018/19) of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, becoming the first and only Japanese manufacturer to enter the series and competing in partnership with the e.dams race team as Nissan e.dams. 

In its first season, Nissan e.dams finished fourth in the FIA Formula E Teams’ World Championship with six podiums and five pole positions. The squad also achieved 16 Super Pole shoot-out qualifying appearances, becoming the best qualifying team of the season, and ended its campaign with a maiden victory at the New York E-Prix.  

Nissan e.dams further improved its results in Season 6 (2019/20), taking second in the Teams’ Championship with one victory, five podiums, a pole position, and six consecutive Super Pole qualifying appearances. 

In Season 7, Nissan announced its long-term involvement in Formula E and its commitment to the Gen3 era, which will run from Season 9 (2022/23) and through to the end of Season 12 (2025/26) of the all-electric racing series.  

In April 2022, Nissan acquired the e.dams race team, with the Japanese automaker taking full ownership of its involvement in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. 

In June 2022, Nissan announced it would supply its Nissan EV powertrain technology to McLaren Racing for the entirety of the Formula E Gen3 era, further demonstrating its commitment and involvement in Formula E. 

Season 9 (2022/23) will be the first of the highly anticipated Gen3 homologation and Nissan’s fifth in Formula E. It will also mark a new era for the Japanese automaker, as it will be competing in Formula E as one team for the first time as Nissan Formula E Team. 

In Season 9 the team will continue to link its presence in the all-electric championship to Nissan's road EVs, competing with the #23 Nissan Ariya, named after the Japanese manufacturer's all-new electric crossover SUV, and the #22 Nissan LEAF, named after the brand's well-known EV, first launched in 2010. 

Nissan is a world-leading expert in the design and manufacture of exciting all-electric vehicles. With more than 500,000 Nissan LEAF vehicles sold since the model debuted in 2010, Nissan made use of its existing EV experience to develop its Formula E race car. 

In turn, the lessons learnt on the racetrack help shape the next generations of EVs from the Japanese car maker. 

Nissan races in this all-electric world championship to bring the excitement and fun of zero-emission electric vehicles to a global audience. As part of its goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050, Nissan intends to electrify all its new vehicles by the early 2030s in key markets. The Japanese automaker aims to bring its expertise in transferring knowledge and technology between the racetrack and road for better electric vehicles for customers.
