Formula E – exciting and innovative
Formula E, which was launched in September 2014, is the first exclusively electrical racing series and has managed to establish itself as an appealing motor sport event for a wide audience in only a short space of time and to inspire the best drivers, teams and manufacturers from around the world.
The racing series provides a competitive environment for the automotive industry in terms of promoting the development of electric cars. Audi's e-tron FE-06 is a good example of a racing car that has been developed into a standard vehicle. The races are held around the globe in the city centers of major cities. In this way, electromobility is showcased where it will be utilized in the future: in the urban environment.
What's more, fans of the racing series are able to make an impact on the races in a completely new way: they can give their favorite driver around 70 hp of additional power for a few seconds using the FanBoost. Unparalleled!
Formula E is perfectly suited to our competence in the areas automotive, eMobility and battery sectors. This is how KUKA has supported the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team since March 2017 as a partner and sponsor; the two companies having the common aspiration to give their best at all times: Peak performance.
