Renault Exiting Formula E Competition At End Of Season 4, Nissan Entering

Renault will cease to compete in the popular all-electric car races of the Formula E racing series at the end of Season 4 (in July 2018), but Alliance partner Nissan will begin competing in Season 5 in late 2018, according to a pair of new announcements from the two companies.

Renault will cease to compete in the popular all-electric car races of the Formula E racing series at the end of Season 4 (in July 2018), but Alliance partner Nissan will begin competing in Season 5 in late 2018, according to a pair of new announcements from the two companies.

The news is fairly interesting as Renault e.dams has actually won the Formula E Teams title three consecutive times now — so the team will be exiting after a pretty impressive run.

Thierry Koskas, Groupe Renault EVP sales & marketing, explained the news: “We had an incredible championship run during our first three years in Formula E and look forward to a competitive fourth season with the benefit of a very stable environment at Renault e.dams. As a pioneer in EV, we have learned a tremendous amount about high-performance electric vehicles and energy management that directly benefits our EV customers. After Season 4 we will focus resources on our aggressive goals for Formula 1 and we look forward to continuing to gain benefits from motorsport racing across the Alliance with Nissan.”

Notably, Renault will be helping with Nissan’s entry into the racing series — providing various forms of expertise and technology to the firm. Season 5, the first that Nissan will be competing in, will be the first when new chassis and battery specifications are introduced to the series, it should be remembered.

The upcoming Formula E Season 4 begins in December and continues on until July. Major races will be held in New York City, Berlin, Hong Kong, Paris, and Montreal.
