[ad_1]

For the first time in Formula E history, the sport has announced that a manufacturers trophy will be introduced this year, in what is a game-changer for the all-electric series.

Since Formula E’s birth, only the Drivers’ and Teams’ Championships have existed, however, now the powertrain suppliers will be fighting for bragging rights.

The introduction of a manufacturers’ trophy is significant, as it will also be a chance for the powertrain suppliers to boast that they produce the best EV technology.

Despite the fact that the fourth round of Season 10 is taking place this weekend, Formula E will use the current points to introduce the new trophy at the São Paulo E-Prix.

Formula E currently has six powertrain suppliers, they are Jaguar, Porsche, Stellantis, Nissan, Mahindra and ERT. Points will be taken from the two highest-scoring cars from each manufacturer.

The winning manufacturer will receive a trophy at the end of the season, whilst a winner’s badge will be displayed on helmets, cars and apparel the following campaign.

Chance to ‘celebrate’ manufacturers

“We are thrilled to unveil the Manufacturers Trophy for Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship,” said Alberto Longo, Formula E’s co-founder and CCO. “This has been a long time in the making and marks a real milestone in the evolution of the Championship as it captures the competitive spirit that fuels Formula E.

“Our manufacturers are at the heart of our journey, pushing the boundaries of technology and sustainability in motorsport. Their contributions are vital, not just in shaping the future of racing but in advancing electric vehicle technology for the road. This trophy will celebrate their innovation, their commitment, and their role in driving us towards a more sustainable future.”
