Invitation: New York City E-Prix, July 14-15, 2018 ABB Formula E – Writing the Future of e-Mobility.

25 Jun 2018

The era of sustainable transport has arrived. After a slow start, the essential technologies to enable the transition from fossil fuel-powered vehicles to e-mobility are now in place. In the coming years, we can expect to see a dramatic and accelerating shift in the type of vehicles and infrastructure that are used to transport people and goods. The most visible aspect of this transition is the automobile. The internal combustion engine is giving way to the electric motor, which is rapidly approaching the point where it can match a gasoline or diesel engine in acceleration, performance and range, but without producing the emissions that are polluting our atmosphere. Two pioneers driving the e-mobility transition are ABB and Formula E. In January 2018, we teamed up to form the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, the world’s first fully electric FIA motorsport series, to advance e-mobility for a sustainable future. We are delighted to invite you to join us in Brooklyn, New York on July 14-15, 2018, for the race season finale where the Season 4 champion will be crowned. The program consists of an exciting series of events focused on e-mobility technologies and culminates with the E-Prix championship race on Sunday. As title sponsor of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, ABB has been at the forefront of e-mobility technology for more than a century. We are world leaders in electrification and electric vehicle charging solutions with the largest installed base of fast-charging stations worldwide. Together with Formula E, which serves as a competitive platform to test e-mobility technologies, we are pushing the boundaries of e-mobility.
