Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag is thrilled that Porsche and Mercedes are on the confirmed FIA list and believes this shows how far Formula E has come in such a short space of time.
“I’m delighted to see the confirmation that both Mercedes-Benz and Porsche will join the series,” stated Agag. “They will join alongside some of the existing names on the official list of homologated manufacturers for season six.
“We continue to exceed all of the initial expectations set out when we started this journey just four years ago. If you had said to me then that we would be in double figures in terms of recognisable names in the world of motorsport, biggest road car manufacturers and automotive brands – I would have said you were crazy. But this is the reality now.
“Combine this with the ever-growing list of partners joining the electric racing revolution and it’s clear that the ABB FIA Formula E Championship is a very exciting place to be in motorsport,” added Agag.
