BMW enters its fourth year as official vehicle supplier in Formula E. The German car manufacturer announced in Hong Kong it the extension of the collaboration, that existed since the inaugural season.

The deal includes the Qualcomm BMW i Safety Car, the new BMW i3 as the Medical Car and Race Control Car and the BMW X5 xDrive40e as Rescue Car and Extrication Car.

“It was almost a logical step for us to get involved in Formula E with BMW i in 2014 – and it is just as logical to continue the partnership in the coming years,” said Jörg Reimann, Vice President BMW Brand Experience. “Formula E is breaking new ground in motorsport in many ways, just as BMW i does in terms of the mobility of the future, which is why the combination works really well. We are particularly looking forward to seeing the BMW i3s on the track this season.”

Agag stressed the importance of BMW i for Formula E and said: “It’s fantastic news that BMW i is extending its commitment as Official Vehicle Partner. Even when Formula E was just an idea and didn’t then exist, we had BMW on board as a partner that believed in this project from the very beginning.”
