If you think automakers only get involved in racing for the publicity, you should know that Japan’s Nissan is currently taking part in the Formula E (electric) Championship, not only to prove its commitment to a greener environment, but also to learn more about electric technology.

For example, Nissan took part in the first race of this series in Japan on March 30 (Tokyo E-Prix). Its aim? To learn more about the series’ new rules, which include 600 kW (800 hp) motors with a 600 kW fast-charging battery pack. The cars will also have to be four-wheel drive, which should provide information for Nissan engineers who are about to reveal the manufacturer’s new technology for its new electric vehicles scheduled for 2027.
