Nico Rosberg will treat fans of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship at the Berlin E-Prix to the first public demonstration of the Gen2 car, getting behind the wheel of the striking new model for next season – as well as disclosing his long-term commitment to the series as an investor.
The German star and champion driver is set to make a one-off appearance ahead of the race at Tempelhof Airport on May 19 to drive the next generation Formula E car, which hit the headlines at the Geneva Motor Show last month and is scheduled to make its competitive debut in season five.
Rosberg will buckle-up and take to the track during a dedicated 10-minute slot prior to proceedings getting underway for the fourth edition of the Berlin E-Prix – round nine of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
In addition to shaking down the new car, Rosberg has re-affirmed his position as a keen supporter of e-mobility and the electric street racing series – by confirming he’s already a long-term investor and shareholder in Formula E.
The Gen2 car not only boasts a futuristic new-look for Formula E, but also shows a clear jump in performance over a race distance and almost double the energy storage capacity.
