Nissan accelerating electrification through Formula E racing

Formula E, the world's sole all-electric single-seater FIA World Championship, provides an elite motorsports platform for leading automotive manufacturers to accelerate EV innovation and brings dramatic racing to the heart of some of the world's most iconic cities.

Nissan has a long and successful history in both motorsports and electric mobility. Determined to showcase its cutting-edge, zero-emissions EV technology before a global audience, Nissan made its all-electric racing debut in Season 5 (2018/19) of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. It's the first and only Japanese manufacturer to enter the series.

Mastering the art of energy management

Nissan tapped its many decades of EV expertise to create its all-electric race car. Knowledge gained from the 16 billion kilometers driven by LEAF customers played a key role in the design of our racing software.

In turn, the lessons learned on the racetrack are helping shape our next generations of EVs.

For example, one of the secrets to success in Formula E is efficient energy management. The development of ultra-efficient battery management software for our electric race cars has led to better intelligent power solutions for our road-going EVs.

2024 Tokyo E-Prix

Nissan's Formula E team put on an electrifying performance at the inaugural 2024 Tokyo E-Prix on March 30, clinching second place. Nissan — Japan's EV market leader — has committed to participating in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship until at least 2030.

Expectations are high for Nissan Formula E Team drivers Sacha Fenestraz and Oliver Rowland. Fenestraz debuted in 2022 and managed to claim pole position with the fastest Formula E lap of all time in just his fifth race with the team. Rowland previously drove for the team in Seasons 5-7, taking seven pole positions and eleven podiums — including a 2020 victory in Berlin.

Nissan is aiming for unprecedented success in Season 10 and the highly anticipated inaugural Tokyo E-Prix will provide the perfect platform to showcase just how thrilling EVs can be.
