Innovations for the future. BMW i in the FIA Formula E Championship.

BMW i has been involved as “Official Vehicle Partner” since the very first race of the world’s first championship for race cars with electric powertrains back in September 2014. BMW is now moving up a gear for the 2016/17 season and is working closely with US motor racing legend Michael Andretti’s team. As Cooperation Partner of MS Amlin Andretti, BMW Motorsport is in close communication with the team, in order to familiarise itself with the ins and outs of this innovative series and prepare for a possible works involvement in season five.

OFFICIAL VEHICLE PARTNER.

The fleet.

BMW recognised the potential of the FIA Formula E Championship in its early stages – and has thrilled fans with its range of BMW i vehicles at race weekends ever since. The Qualcomm BMW i8 Safety Car is the most spectacular of the cars provided by BMW i as “Official Vehicle Partner”. It is joined at the circuits by the fully-electric, zero-emission BMW i3 and the plug-in hybrid BMW X5 xDrive40e.

Qualcomm BMW i8 Safety Car.

The technological spearhead.

The BMW i8 is the most progressive sports car of its era, and was the forerunner in a totally new sector. Thanks to its revolutionary design, with carbon passenger compartment and aluminium chassis, as well as aerodynamics as yet unseen in its sector, the BMW i8 sets completely new benchmarks. The car is once again the official FIA Formula E Qualcomm Safety Car for season three of Formula E. (Combined fuel consumption: 2.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 49 g/km).
BMW i3 Medical Car

Pure battery power.

The zero-emission BMW i3is once again the official FIA Formula E Medical Car and the Race Director’s car in the 2016/17 season. Two BMW i3s are in action at the race weekends around the world. (Combined energy consumption: 12.9 kWh; Combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km)
BMW X5 xDrive40e Rescue Car.

Plug-in-hybrid for the racetrack.

The plug-in-hybrid BMW X5 xDrive40e is used as the official FIA Formula E Rescue Car in the FIA Formula E Championship, and has been technically modified to meet the demands of the FIA. (Combined fuel consumption: 3.4 – 3.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 78 – 77 g/km; values in EU test cycle, dependent on tyre format selected)
