In Season 6, ABB entered into an exclusive partnership with automobile manufacturer, Porsche, to jointly promote e-mobility.
As part of a multi-level agreement, we became an official partner of the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E team. The partnership benefits include industry exclusivity, branding and content rights, Porsche experiences and behind-the-scenes access and collaboration on e-mobility topics.
The shared ambition to write the future of e-mobility underpins the common set of values uniting ABB and Porsche, as the collaboration reaches a new level in Season 9, as ABB becomes Official Charging Partner to the championship and Porsche races with the all-new Gen3 99X Electric racecar.
Together, the expertise of these two technology leaders will further develop electric vehicle charging and pave the way to a zero-emission future.
In addition, the partnership creates a visible and practical link between ABB’s Formula E motorsport engagement and world-leading e-mobility solutions. It also showcases our ability to offer customized solutions to partners, while further establishing ABB as a driving force in the technological development of the World Championship.
For Season 9, Porsche’s on-track efforts will be led by newly recruited Antonio Felix Da Costa, a two-time ABB Formula E champion, alongside Pascal Wehrlein, who will race for a third season with the team.
ABB ambassador Simona Di Silvestro continues as Porsche’s test and reserve driver, joined by Neel Jani, who raced for the team in Season 6.
