BMW Teaming With Andretti Autosport For 2018-19 Formula E Season

BMW will join the FIA Formula E Championship as a manufacturer for the 2018-19 season. Andretti Autosport will serve as BMW’s works entry in the series and help promote the manufacturer's hybrid and electric technology.
 
“We are excited to expand our partnership with BMW i and serve as BMW’s official Formula E works team beginning in season five,” said Michael Andretti, CEO of Andretti Autosport and its global family of race teams. “The ongoing collaboration between BMW and Andretti Formula E has provided a strong foundation for BMW’s entry as an official manufacturer. We look forward to running BMW’s first all-electric racing drivetrain and competing for the Formula E Championship.
 
"BMW is leading the automotive future with the BMW i line and their innovation in electric car technology. I couldn’t pick a more prestigious or historic manufacturer to work with in Formula E.”
 
According to BMW, the Formula E project is already providing valuable impetus in the development of BMW iNEXT and the next generation of advanced BMW i models with electric drive.

The 2018-19 season—season five in the history of Formula E—will be the first season in the series where drivers will be limited to one car for the race. Currently, drivers change cars at the halfway point of the race.
