27 July 2020

Extreme E is in advanced talks with Fisker Inc on a series partnership and is poised to be the first manufacturer to enter a works team.

Extreme E, starting early 2021, is the radical new racing series which will see electric SUVs go head to head in extreme locations around the world, including arctic, desert, glacier, coastal and rainforest, which have already been damaged or affected by climate and environmental issues.

Extreme E aims to be a race to road test bed for the EV industry, putting technology and innovation to the ultimate test in its extreme environments, in order to accelerate the development of vital future facing technology for consumers and excite a new generation of car buyers in the performance and environmental benefits of EVs.

Alejandro Agag, founder and CEO of Extreme E explains: “We feel thrilled at the prospect of having Fisker Inc, a pure EV manufacturer, join Extreme E for the start of the first championship. Creating the world’s most sustainable racing series is the perfect launch platform for their new Ocean SUV as well as providing a challenging testing environment for product durability.”

Henrik  Fisker, Chairman and CEO of Fisker Inc added: “Alejandro brought electric vehicle racing into the mainstream with Formula E and I fully support his vision to reinvent off-road racing at the same time as creating an education platform for the threats posed by climate change. Extreme E and Fisker Inc are completely aligned in our mission and values.”
