Nissan e.dams

Nissan made its all-electric racing debut in Season 5 (2018/19) of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. In this first season, the team finished fourth in the Teams’ Championship with six podiums, five pole positions, and 16 Super Pole shoot-out qualifying appearances between the drivers, making Nissan e.dams the best qualifying team of the season. The team ended their campaign with a maiden victory during the final race weekend in New York.

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

In Season 7, Nissan announced its long-term commitment to the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship racing through to the end of Season 12 (2025/2026) of the all-electric racing series.

For Season 8, the last season of the Formula E Gen2 era, Nissan e.dams has an exciting new driver line-up. Joining record-holding Formula E veteran Sebastien Buemi, who remains with the team for the fourth season, is rising star, Maximilian Guenther. The German racer has shown brilliant pace already in Formula E with three race victories and a second-place podium. Buemi and Guenther are racing in cars #23 and #22, respectively.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility

Nissan is the first Japanese manufacturer to enter the series and 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 electric vehicles experience to develop its Formula E race car.

The Formula E program powerfully demonstrates the “performance side” of Nissan Intelligent Mobility – the company’s forward-looking vision for changing how cars are powered, driven, and integrated into society.

Nissan races in Formula E 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-new Nissan vehicle offerings by the early 2030s in key markets. Nissan aims to bring its expertise in transferring knowledge and technology between the racetrack and road for better electric vehicles for customers.
