Why Nissan's e.dams buyout signifies its Formula E victory intent

The e.dams Formula E squad is one of the most storied in the championship's short history as its original benchmark, but its successes in the Gen2 era have been fleeting by comparison. Nissan's decision to take full control ahead of Gen3 marks a statement of intent that it intends to get back to winning ways

In Formula E's formative years, one team was evidently a cut above the other outfits that bought into the all-electric series' principles and joined up in its early days.

DAMS, the French racing squad with a lengthy history in Formula 3000, then GP2 and Formula Renault 3.5, created its e.dams off-shoot to participate in the first season of Formula E. It was backed by Renault, in an immediate signalling of intent to build its own powertrain once the rules were opened up for the second season.
