Nissan And McLaren Racing Announce Partnership For Formula E

Nissan McLaren Racing

Two of the biggest names in automobiles and racing are coming together. Nissan and McLaren Racing have announced a multi-year technical collaboration, which will commence at the beginning of the 2022/23 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship season.

With McLaren Racing confirming its participation in the sport from Season 9 of the all-electric series, the partnership will see the Japanese automaker supply its Nissan EV powertrain technology to the famous British team for the entirety of the Formula E Gen3 era.

McLaren Racing may have found a perfect partner in Nissan. After all, the Japanese automotive manufacturer made its all-electric racing debut in Season 5 (2018/19) of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. They are the first and only Japanese manufacturer to enter the series.

Joint Electric Vision

This new agreement with McLaren is in addition to Nissan’s direct involvement in the highly anticipated Gen3 homologation of the sport. As a world-leading expert in the design and manufacture of exciting all-electric vehicles, and following the recent acquisition of e.dams, Nissan will also continue to compete in Formula E with its own factory team.

Through this relationship, Nissan and McLaren Racing will work closely together as they compete with other successful brands in one of the most challenging and technically advanced racing series in the world.

For Nissan, it’s new partnership with McLaren Racing and involvement in Formula E stretches beyond motor racing. The technical knowledge and experience will also be channeled towards future zero-emission electric vehicles from the brand.

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 every all-new vehicle offering by the early 2030s in key markets. The Japanese automaker aims to bring its expertise in transferring knowledge and technology between the racetrack and road for better electric vehicles for customers.
