MONTE CARLO, Monaco - Nissan e.dams will take its Formula E electric street racing challenge to the most famous street circuit in the world when it races in Monaco for the first time this weekend.
Nissan is using Formula E to demonstrate the power and performance of its electric vehicle technology - a key part of the company's Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision.
Round nine of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship will be held in the principality in the south of France - using many of the same streets that have been raced on annually since 1929.
This year's Monaco E-Prix will be the third Formula E race on Monte Carlo streets. The venue has been a happy hunting ground for Nissan e.dams driver Sebastien Buemi. The Swiss racer has twice started on pole in Monaco and won races in seasons one and three.
The Monaco E-Prix is the third of five European races staged in season five. Nissan is aiming to emulate its success for electric vehicles on the road in Europe; the Nissan LEAF was the best-selling electric car in the region in 2018. The recently unveiled Nissan LEAF e+, with increased range and power, is now available for order in Europe.
The Monaco Formula E circuit is a shorter version of the traditional Formula 1 track but features many of the same famous corners including Sainte Devote's first turn, the spectacular swimming pool section on the Monaco harbor and La Rascasse.
