The FIA ABB Formula E Championship announced on Tuesday that they have entered in a partnership with automotive and electrical company Bosch who become official white goods, automotive and power tools partner to the series for at least the next three years.
Founder and CEO of the ABB Formula E Alejandro Agag commented by saying:
It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Bosch to the ABB FIA Formula E Championship as an official partner. Bosch is one of the leading automotive suppliers and a renowned and respected name – and the move into the ABB FIA Formula E Championship is definitely a big step. I couldn’t think of a more natural tie-up – with Bosch’s long-standing tradition of competing in motorsport and expertise in electrification, automation and connectivity. In my mind, these pillars are key to the future of urban mobility and together with our complete roster of partners we can collectively help to speed-up the switch to electric.
Dr Markus Heyn, member of the board of Bosch commented on the news saying:
Bosch is the go-to partner for electric driving, a position that is now also reflected in our status as an official Formula E partner. Bosch electrifies the powertrain – whether on the streets or in motor racing.
Vibrant cities, enthusiastic fans and vehicles with electrifying acceleration – this emotive setting is perfect for our motor racing activities. Regardless of what the powertrain is, motor racing is part of Bosch’s DNA.
