Official Vehicle Partner. The vehicle fleet for Formula E.

The BMW Group has been involved in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship as "Official Vehicle Partner" from the outset. Now, in Season 7, it once again provides the fleet of safety cars for the fully-electric racing series. As well as the BMW i8 Roadster Safety Car (fuel consumption combined: 2.0 l/100 km; power consumption combined: 14.5 kWh/100 km, CO2 emissions combined: 46 g/km)*, which has been specially modified for its race outings, a new safety car will now take to the track for the first time at the Rome E-Prix, the MINI Electric Pacesetter inspired by JCW.

The car is based on the new MINI Cooper SE and was created in a unique collaboration between MINI Design, BMW Motorsport, the FIA and Formula E. The BMW i fleet for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship also includes the BMW i3s (power consumption in kWh/100 km: 14.6-14.0 (NEDC); 16.6-16.3 (WLTP); electric range (WLTP) in km: 278-283)* as the "Race Director Car", and the BMW iX3 (fuel consumption in kWh/100 km: 17.8-17.5 (NEDC); 19.0-18.6 (WLTP); electric range (WLTP) in km: 450-458)* in its roles as "Medical Car" and "Rescue Car".

MINI Electric Pacesetter inspired by JCW

Safety Car.

The MINI Electric Pacesetter inspired by JCW is the newest member of the safety car fleet, which the BMW Group has provided since day one of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. The new safety car for the series combines the electric future of the brand with the rich motorsport history of John Cooper Works. The car is based on the new MINI Cooper SE and was created in a unique collaboration between MINI Design, BMW Motorsport, the FIA and Formula E. Beneath the punchy design of the MINI Electric Pacesetter inspired by JCW lies BMW Motorsport know-how. Consistent lightweight design has made it possible to reduce the weight of the safety car by approx. 130 kg compared to the series version of the MINI Cooper SE. Among other things, the power unit has been optimised, based on the MINI Cooper SE, allowing the safety car to post impressive acceleration figures.

BMW i8 Roadster.

Safety Car.

Only those who go beyond the limits are truly free. The first BMW i8 Roadster embodies this urge for freedom and perfection like nothing else. It is almost silent as it glides with the top down in the open air and promises a roadster feeling like never before. The innovative, multi-award-winning* plug-in hybrid drive, which rockets the roadster from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds with 275 kW (375 hp), also underlines the unique character of the BMW i8 Roadster. The future is now. And it’s more exciting than ever.


* BMW i8 Roadster: Fuel consumption (combined): 2.1l/100km; CO2 emissions (combined): 46g/km; electricity consumption (combined) 14.5kWh/100 km.
