Shell and Nissan : Together we’re electric!

The alliance between Shell and Nissan in Formula E is significant in that it brings together two leaders in the development of new mobility solutions. Both partners have a vision to improve the driving experience for EV drivers, helping to make them more attractive to motorists.

As one of the world’s largest energy suppliers, Shell has the unique ability to use its technology and marketing expertise to develop more and cleaner mobility solutions that will serve the growing number of EV customers both on and beyond the forecourt.

Race for the Future

Shell is increasingly charging electric vehicles at forecourts, homes and workplaces, while developing specialised lubricants or e-fluids that will make EVs more efficient.

On the track, the partnership will enable Shell and Nissan to explore opportunities to provide greater performance to the team in their ambition to win championships. As with Shell’s successful partnerships with manufacturers in other motorsport series, the partnership will enable a shared desire to deliver innovations from the racetrack to the road.

“We share Nissan and Formula E’s desire to deliver technological innovations from the racetrack to road, so all electric drivers can benefit from them.” Istvàn Kapitàny, Executive Vice President Shell Retail
