Nissan preps up for 2nd Formula E season

As the forerunners in the Electric car business, Nissan preps up for its second Formula E season with the unveiling of the new -liveried Formula E racer.

Nissan’s 2019/20 liveried Formula E race car takes up red, black and white design, inspired by the Japanese kimono garment. This livery will also be featured on the Nissan LEAF NISMO RC, the dual electric-motor performance vehicle based on the Nissan LEAF electric car.

Aside from the livery, the 2019/20 e.dams racer features an updated powertrain, in line with new series regulations. The new powertrain replaces the previous dual electric-motor system.

Campaigning for the Nissan e.dams Formula E squad are drivers Sebastien Buemi and Oliver Rowland. Both drivers are back behind the wheel for the Nissan e.dams team. The team entered the championship to showcase its zero-emission vehicle technologies, communicate the company’s Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision.

Highlights of season five (2018/19) included achieving second in championship, six podium finishes (including the last five races), six pole positions (the most for any team), and 16 Super Pole qualifying appearances combined by Buemi and Rowland, making Nissan e.dams the best qualifying team in the championship. The team ended the season with its first ever victory during the final race weekend in New York.

The Nissan e.dams team hit the track last week at a series pre-season test in Valencia, Spain. The team posted times in the top ten of every session throughout three days of testing. The team targets winning the overall title this season.

The sixth season of Formula E kicks off next month in Saudi Arabia. Fourteen races will be held in 12 cities, with the final double-header round taking place in London. New venues this season include Seoul, Jakarta, and the London circuit, which runs inside the Excel London exhibition center.
