All-Electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship is Racing into Brooklyn, NY
June 14, 2019
Rounding off the fifth season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, 11 global electric racing teams and 22 drivers will come to the United States on July 13 and 14 to compete in a doubleheader season finale. The New York E-Prix will showcase the future of racing power under the Manhattan skyline on a race course carved out of the streets of Brooklyn. If you watched yesterday's video of the Volkswagen ID.R electric supercar tearing up the Nurburgring, here's a chance to see that kind of electric performance up close. With a total of nine manufacturers on board - the likes of Jaguar, Nissan, BMW, Audi, DS and Mahindra - Formula E serves as a competitive platform for global car manufacturers and mobility providers to test and develop road-relevant technologies. By racing on the streets, the series acts as a catalyst, helping to refine the design of electric vehicles and improve the driving experience for everyday road car users all over the world. Now, building on five seasons of all-electric city street racing, the Championship boasts one of the best sporting calendars in the world, with 13 races in 12 of the world's most progressive cities covering five continents. Tickets for the Brooklyn race are still available.
