Maserati will make its Formula E debut from 2023 and will be the first Italian automaker to be part of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
After taking a sabbatical from single-seater racing, Maserati will once again be back on the racetrack. The company has announced that it will compete in Formula E Season 9 and race in Gen3 cars. These cars are considered to be the most powerful and efficient in Formula E history. They will allow greater energy recovery through regenerative braking and produce up to 35kW of power.
Maserati’s debut would make it the first Italian marque to compete in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in 2023. The move is in line with the company’s vision to transition to electric mobility. All-new Maserati models will also be available in all-electric solutions, including Maserati Grecale, Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio and the Maserati MC20 super sports car.
While this may be the company’s first foray into Formula E, they have a long and illustrious history in the world of motorsport. In fact, they made their racing debut in 1926 when their Tipo 26 entered and won the Targa Florio. Maserati even competed in other events like Formula 1, FIA GT, World Sportscar Championship, Indianapolis 500 and more.
Davide Grasso, CEO of Maserati, said: “We are very proud to be back in our place as protagonists of the racing world. We are driven by passion and innovative by nature. We have a long history of world-class excellence in competition and we are ready to drive performance in the future.
Jean-Marc Finot, Senior Vice President of Stellantis Motorsport, said: “It is a great pleasure for Stellantis Motorsport to play a part in Maserati’s return to racing. Beyond this piece of history, Maserati Formula E will be our technology lab to accelerate the development of high-efficiency electrified powertrains and intelligent software for our road sports cars. Formula E is the perfect championship for this purpose and we are very proud to be the first Italian brand to join us. »
