Fast-approaching electric off-road motor racing championship Extreme E has revealed the latest addition to the team line up.
Fisker, the creator of “the world’s most emotion-stirring, sustainable electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions,” is en route to secure a series partnership and team entrance.
Extreme E, starting early 2021, is a radical new racing series which will see electric SUVs go head to head in extreme locations around the world, including arctic, desert, glacier, coastal and rain forest, which have already been damaged or affected by climate and environmental issues.
Alejandro Agag, Founder and CEO of Extreme E explains: “We feel thrilled at the prospect of having Fisker Inc, a pure EV manufacturer, join Extreme E for the start of the first championship. Creating the world’s most sustainable racing series is the perfect launch platform for their new Ocean SUV as well as providing a challenging testing environment for product durability.”
Henrik Fisker, Chairman and CEO of Fisker Inc. added: “Alejandro brought electric vehicle racing into the mainstream with Formula E and I fully support his vision to reinvent off-road racing at the same time as creating an education platform for the threats posed by climate change. Extreme E and Fisker Inc. are completely aligned in our mission and values.”
