Nissan Unwraps Formula E Electric Race Car
Later this year, Nissan will take over the Formula E’s Renault e.Dams team for the fifth season of the series (2018 / 19) and here is the racer in concept livery.
The first Nissan Formula E was shown at the Geneva Motor Show and is promoted by Nissan ambassador Margot Robbie.
The livery was designed by Nissan’s Global Design team in Japan.
Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president of global design at Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., said:
“At first glance the season five Formula E car looked to our design team like an EV-powered supersonic bird in flight. Naturally this initial reaction from the team started us on a path that captured a sense of a form breaking free of resistance and gravity. Formula E racers are virtually silent, with explosive speed bursts thus naturally we turned to Doppler when designing the livery. The combination of the sonic pulse of the Doppler effect and the released power of a sonic boom inspired our celebration of EV Racing!”
In the next season, cars will have more power and more range, so the mid-race car swap will be eliminated.
