The ABB FIA Formula E has extended its official vehicle partnership with BMW. The renewed agreement ensures that the German OEM will continue to supply the championship with course cars at every race.

BMW will equip each Formula E stage with a BMW i safety car, race director car, medical car and rescue car. The continued collaboration was confirmed at an event held to unveil the new design and color scheme of the BMW i8 safety car ahead of the Mexico City E-Prix.

The updated livery was unveiled by Jamie Reigle, chief executive officer of Formula E; Pia Schoerner, head of BMW Motorsport marketing; and Andreas Aumann, VP for e-mobility at BMW i.

As well as supplying circuit course cars, BMW i-branded vehicles will continue to enable passenger laps at every E-Prix.
