Formula E: BMW Is The Official Vehicle Partner For 2015-16 Season

Written By:

BMW will be lining up for the FIA Formula E Championship once again in 2015-16 and will be on hand as Official Vehicle Partner.

The BMW i8 will once again be used as the Safety Car in the Formula E series and the all-electric BMW i3 will perform the role of Medical Car, as it did in the inaugural season.

Two BMW C evolution electric scooters and a BMW X5 xDrive40e plug-in hybrid will be making their Formula E debuts, as models from other BMW Group brands join the BMW i cars in the eDrive family.

Jörg Reimann, the Vice President of BMW Brand Experience said, "BMW i and Formula E make a great match. The world governing body of motorsport, the FIA, is branching out in a new and extremely interesting direction with the FIA Formula E Championship - and we have been on board from the outset."

"The series got off to a highly successful start in its first year on the calendar, with its all-electric formula racing cars, tight street circuits running through the heart of major world cities and innovative ideas engaging fans via social networks."

The new season will begin on 17 October 2015 and again take in eleven races in ten countries, with ten teams participating.
