BEYOND THE SPEED OF SOUND
The aerodynamic body for electric racers presents a different livery design challenge
than their internal combustion counterparts. For Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s
Senior Vice President of Global Design, flight and sound became important themes.
“At first glance, the season five Formula E car looked to our design team like a
supersonic bird in flight,” he said. "While Formula E racers are virtually silent,
they deliver electrifying bursts of speed. This, combined, with visualization of the
Doppler Effect generated our livery.”
NISSAN TAKES IT TO THE STREETS
Nissan will race in 12 cities on four continents during season five of the
ABB FIA Formula E Championship series. An exciting backdrop to racing thrills,
the series will include Hong Kong, Marrakesh, Monaco, Berlin, and Paris,
with the season wrapping up in New York.

WHO WINS THE BIG PRIZE? WE ALL DO.
There is an old saying: “Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday” – winning in motorsport
equals success on the showroom floor. And with a racing history that goes back to 1936,
Nissan loves to compete.
But Formula E is different – it is not just going to sell a few cars or create some new race fans.
The advances in EV technology that come from racing will change how we drive,
and even how we live.
It's the same kind of vision that drives Nissan Intelligent Mobility: redefining power with
zero-emissions technology, developing innovative systems that reduce stress and make
driving more fun, and looking forward toward a future when Nissan vehicles can
even power your home.
And for Nissan, whose focus is to electrify the world, it's the perfect place to drive the
future forward at an exhilarating pace.
