Nissan announces 2018 motorsports programs

YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan/NISMO today announced their global motorsports plans for 2018, which include Nissan’s debut in the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship, as well as updated lineups for the Japanese Super GT Championship.

Formula E
Nissan will be the first Japanese automaker to debut in the Formula E Championship at the start of season five in late 2018. Nissan will reveal its Formula E livery at this year’s Geneva Motor Show in March. Further information on the driver lineup and team details will be available later this year.

Starting from season five, teams will compete with a new chassis/battery combination and new powertrains to eliminate the mid-race car swap that was previously a part of Formula E races.

The entry by Nissan, a global leader in electric vehicle technology, is perfectly timed to coincide with new technical regulations for the championship. It’s also a high-performance expression of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. Nissan makes the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, the Nissan LEAF, and introduced a new version of the zero-emission car in October 2017.
