Kicking off later today, the City of Cape Town is the scene for the much-talked about event which combines edge-of-seat street racing and cutting-edge electric vehicle technology. As the world’s first international, fully electric street racing series, Formula E puts the planet first. Through its pioneering alternative energy solutions, Formula E is flipping the script in favour of a cleaner, faster future.
With Formula One and Formula E two of the most glamorous sports in the world, top French champagne brand Moët & Chandon has partnered with Formula E in the upcoming ninth season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. It is the intention to revolutionise an industry in honour of nature that resonated with Moët & Chandon.
Formula E exists to accelerate sustainable human progress through the power of electric racing. The first sport to be certified net zero carbon since inception, Formula E was founded to counteract climate change by accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles.
The Grande Maison too has pledged to forge a sustainable future for the brand: Through Natura Nostra, the Maison’s extensive biodiversity programme, Moët & Chandon is on its way to curbing its carbon footprint by 50% by 2030 (compared to 2018) through transformative shifts in its interaction with the environment. The ongoing Formula E partnership is one of those sustainability initiatives.
The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship brings intense and unpredictable all-electric racing to the heart of iconic cities around the world. In its first six seasons Formula E crowned five different champions and celebrated 17 winners in 69 races. With more automotive manufacturers on the grid than any other motorsport, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is not only one of the most compelling racing series on the planet but also an unparalleled proving ground for race-to-road electric vehicle and sustainable mobility technologies.
Powered by purpose and united by a passion to deliver edge-of-seat racing, the positively charged Formula E community of teams, manufacturers, partners, broadcasters, host cities and fans work together to light up the world with the transformative power of electric racing.
