Why subscribe to Formula E?

Formula E is becoming increasingly popular with fans and it gives Audi the chance to develop electrification and showcase what is possible in the new era of motorsport!

Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich, said:

“Audi has consistently been using motorsport to test and develop new technologies further for subsequent use in production. With quattro drive we revolutionised rally racing and subsequently set standards in circuit racing as well.”

“In the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Audi was the first manufacturer to have achieved victories with a TFSI engine, a TDI and a hybrid race car, so writing motorsport history on several occasions. Now we intend to repeat this in fully-electric racing.”

Audi’s Stefan Knirsch, member of the board of management, technical development, said:

“By 2025, every fourth Audi should be an electric vehicle. The first model for this is planned to be an SUV we’re going to present in 2018. In the light of these plans, adapting our motorsport program and taking up a commitment in a fully electric racing series is only a logical move.”
