Volvo, with its Polestar performance division, may enter the Formula E racing series in the near future.

As Autocar reports:

“The car maker is part of the advisory board for Formula E and a spokesperson confirmed to Autocar that while there are no immediate plans to enter, it remains a possibility for the brand.”

Racing is not new for Polestar. The performance division has fielded cars in various racing series over the years, but is now only involved in the World Touring Car Championship, where it races the S60 Polestar.

Autocar suggests that Polestar could make a formal decision for Formula E before October of this year when the third season of the racing series is set to begin.

Interesting that while F1 seems to have trouble finding big OEMs to invest money, FE seems to be more interesting, even tough less people watch it.

The series only exist for 3 years. So it is normal that F1 have more people watching. With brands like Jaguar and Volvo the interest of the watchers wil grow. The World endurance Series has quite the same TV viewers.With one exception: 24lemans
