Maserati to join electric single seater series Formula E for Gen3
Italy’s Maserati will join the electric single-seater series Formula E from season nine, marking its debut of the championship’s Gen3 cars.
The competition would also mark Maserati's return to single-seater competition after 60 years.
Maserati, the first Italian manufacturer to join the series, has a rich heritage in motorsport, having joined Formula One and GT Racing.
The Italian car manufacturer is joining Formula E due to its drive to progress its electric vehicle (EV) operations.
With the departures of Audi and BMW, and Mercedes confirming it will leave at the end of the 2021/22 season, Maserati’s entry is a welcome relief for Formula E.
Jamie Reigle, CEO of Formula E, expects Maserati to play a defining role in reimagining the future of motorsport.
He added that millions of Formula E fans would be thrilled to see Maserati, one of the world’s elite electric car brands, line up on the grid.
