FORMULA E
The idea of the first all-electric street racing series first emerged in 2011, promoted by FIA President Jean Todt and Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag. QEV Technologies was involved in the series from very beginning. In the first season (2014/15) we managed the Next EV team and we won the championship with Nelson Pique. From next season we started a long-term collaboration with Mahindra racing – we are one team. Every season we keep pushing to develop the high-end technology and to motivate the team to raise the bar. We are proud to keep the team among the top positions.
