Nissan recently announced its partnership with Formula E as the Official Race Partner of the first-ever Tokyo E-Prix.

The all-electric race is part of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and is scheduled for March 30, 2024.

The 2024 Tokyo E-Prix will feature a formidable 18-turn, 2.58 km street circuit around Tokyo Big Sight, just minutes from downtown Tokyo.

With three long straights, a series of tight technical turns, and high-speed combinations, the track is poised to deliver an unparalleled fan experience against Tokyo’s metropolitan backdrop.

Nissan first entered the all-electric series in Season 5, becoming the first ever Japanese manufacturer to join the championship.

Through its official race partnership it will elevate Nissan’s position in EV performance both on and off the track from additional awareness of the brand.

Nissan also supplies its customer team NEOM McLaren Formula E Team with its powertrain, enabling further development and testing of cutting-edge software and engineering.

Tommaso Volpe, managing director and team principal, Nissan Formula E Team, said: "Nissan is excited to partner with Formula E for the historic maiden Tokyo E-Prix. We're proud to bring this experience to Tokyo and to contribute Nissan's pioneering spirit to the world of electric motorsport."

Alberto Longo, co-founder and chief championship officer, Formula E, said: "Partnering with Nissan not only enhances this landmark event but also amplifies our shared vision for a sustainable future and an electrifying fan experience. We absolutely cannot wait to bring this to our fans."
