ABB Formula E revs up for Season 6

October 18, 2019

This week’s pre-season testing of the advanced electric race cars taking place in Valencia, Spain, marks the opening of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship Season 6. In its third year as title partner, ABB will be showcasing at race venues worldwide its innovative products and services that pave the way for e-mobility and smart cities.

The 14-race calendar begins with back-to-back races in Saudi Arabia on November 22-23 and concludes in London in July 2020. Two new capital city venues have been added with Jakarta, Indonesia and Seoul, South Korea. In addition, the two iconic car manufacturers Porsche and Mercedes will be part of the 22-team line up.

ABB plays a central role in the whole value chain of e-mobility. This starts with a wide-range of robots on the assembly lines to the distribution of power from renewable resources. In addition, ABB is active in battery storage systems, supported by a digital energy management system. Finally, as the market leader in fast charging technology, ABB is essential in driving the e-mobility evolution.

For example, ABB supplies high power DC fast charging stations able to deliver enough energy for a 100 km of range in just 4 minutes through partners like Electrify America, IONITY, Fastned and many more.

ABB already offers a broad range of solutions to manage the energy efficiency of buildings through various products that control the energy storage, distribution and management, via its free@home offering. ABB has some 5 million components of smart home solutions such as control panels, sensors and software installed in over 40 countries worldwide.

In the field of transportation, ABB offers solutions from grid distribution to charging points for cars, busses and trucks, as well as for the electrification of ships, railways, trams and cable cars. With 11,000 ABB DC fast chargers sold across 76 countries worldwide, it is the technology leader in this field.

ABB will continue as the official charging partner of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, the supporting-race series of ABB Formula E. ABB Terra 53 DC chargers power the I-PACE SUV racecars throughout the race weekend.
