Born from humble beginnings, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is now home to some of the planet’s most talented and daring drivers supported by world leading manufacturers such as McLaren and Porsche.

We’re curious, brave and thoughtful; having a relenting desire to push boundaries both at and away from our races. With a mission that is far greater than producing world-class events, we value both humanity and the planet just the same. It’s why we believe that work should be fun, meaningful and impactful, valuing the importance of supporting each other and how success can only be achieved as part of a wider collective team.

Using the spectacle of sport, we are sending a powerful and meaningful message to help alter perceptions and speed-up the switch to electric mobility. We also operate as a testbed to push the development of new technologies needed for an electric, low-carbon future.
