About us

In its first eight seasons, Formula E has crowned seven different champions and celebrated 23 winners in 100 races. With more automotive manufacturers on the grid than any other motorsport, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is one of the world’s most compelling racing series and enters its ninth season as the fastest growing sport on the planet.

How Formula E Has Made Motorsport Sustainable

The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is a unique combination of racing and reason. It’s sustainable, it’s competitive and it’s unpredictable.

But we’re more than a race; Formula E was founded to counteract climate change by accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles and as an unparalleled proving ground for race-to-road electric vehicle technologies. In Season 9, our ambition has grown as has our vision to accelerate sustainable human progress through an all out race for better futures.

The only sport certified net zero carbon since inception, Formula E is a beacon for fans who want to enjoy edge-of-seat racing today at the same time as having a positive effect on the world tomorrow.

Formula E is a unique fusion of world class sport, sustainability, and cutting edge technology on a global stage. Season 9 signals the start of the Gen3 era in the sport with the debut of the third generation race car – the fastest, lightest, most powerful and efficient electric race car ever built. Formula E will also go further than ever before in Season 9 with 17 races in 10 iconic world cities.
