What is Extreme E?

Extreme E is a radical new off-road racing series, founded by the same team behind Formula E, which will showcase electric SUVs and futuristic technologies in some of the world’s most remote and extreme environments.

This five-event global voyage will utilise its sporting platform for the purpose of promoting electrification, sustainability, and equality. The series goal is highlight the impact of climate change in some of the world’s most remote environments, promote the adoption of electric vehicles to pave the way for a lower carbon future, and provide a world-first gender equal motorsport platform.

The first sport to ever be built out of a social purpose, Extreme E aims to minimise environmental impact, but maximise awareness, racing in places that have already been damaged or affected by climate change, taking fans deep into the heart of the most pressing issues facing our planet’s future.

Not only that, Extreme E is also helping the car industry to develop future facing technology using racing as a platform for road innovation, which accelerates change ten-fold

When and where will Extreme E take place?
