Nissan is set to become the first Japanese automotive brand to compete in the FIA Formula E Championship, joining the electric street racing series in season five.

Nissan joins an increasing number of car brands that are inking their name on the Formula E racing series, such as Audi, Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Renault, Jaguar and Mahindra.
 
The move to participate in Formula E provides Nissan with a global platform to spread the message of Nissan Intelligent Mobility—the company’s three-pillar strategy to re-define how its vehicles are driven, powered and integrated into society, according to a release from the company.
 
“To have a name like Nissan coming on board is a momentous day for the series. Not only is it great to welcome a new manufacturer to the Formula E family—it’s great to see our first Japanese manufacturer entering the frame, showing truly how global the electric revolution is,” Alejandro Agag, Founder & CEO of Formula E, said.
