Nissan Motorsport has revealed its latest Formula E car in Yokohama ahead of its second season in the new ABB FIA Formula E Championship series season.
Equipped with a black and red livery, the season six challenger is powered by an updated powertrain in line with new series regulations. A single-motor system replaces the dual electric-motor system from season five.
“The second season is sometimes harder than the first,” said Michael Carcamo, Nissan’s global motorsports director. “With a major change to a single-motor solution, we had plenty to do in the off-season.
“We’ll use everything we learned from season five to improve our package, with an even greater emphasis on battery and energy management.”
The updated Nissan e.dams car has undergone track tests during the series’ pre-season test event in Valencia, Spain. The team posted times in the top 10 of every session throughout three days of testing.
“Finishing second as a team last year was great,” said Buemi, who is the top all-time record-holder in Formula E with the most pole positions, fastest laps and wins. “This year, the objective is to fight for the championship.”
