HWA AG is set to join the ABB FIA Formula E Championship as a new customer team for next season, taking the total amount of entrants to 11.
After working in close collaboration with the Venturi outfit throughout the current campaign as a provider of technical support, HWA AG will extend their existing partnership with the Monaco-based team to receive powertrains for the 2018/19 season.
The full entry list is scheduled to be confirmed and published by the FIA shortly in advance of season five along with the introduction of the next generation of Formula E cars, said to be faster and more energy efficient.
“It’s rewarding to see a name so synonymous with racing join the already impressive and growing list of teams and manufacturers competing in Formula E,” Formula E Founder & CEO Alejandro Agag said. “They have a proven track record in other categories and will surely push to replicate similar achievements in Formula E as we enter a new era of fully-electric racing. I’m glad to welcome Ulrich and HWA AG to the Formula E family.”
