Extreme E: The team-by-team guide

The world’s newest motorsport discipline is set to go racing for the first time this weekend. Extreme E’s innovations and plans have raised some eyebrows, but it also provides an exciting list of competitors and teams for the inaugural campaign

Originally devised in 2018 by Formula E co-founder Alejandro Agag and two-time Champ Car champion Gil de Ferran, Extreme E will take off-road racing in all-electric SUVs to locations hurt most by climate change to promote environment repair and protection.

With racing at the heart of the new series, and the backing of motorsport governing body the FIA, Extreme E is the newest attraction in the motorsport arena and boasts some of the biggest names from across multiple motorsport disciplines to provide some star pulling power.
