ANDRETTI UNITED & EXTREME E
With 30 per cent of the world's CO2 emissions coming from transport, Extreme E exists to showcase the performance of electric vehicles. The competition uses a powerful mix of thrilling sports action, scientific education and storytelling to accelerate electric adoption to reduce CO2 emissions and encourage a more sustainable lifestyle.
Led by Michael Andretti, Andretti Autosport holds nearly two decades of accolades across various disciplines of motorsport, including five Indianapolis 500 victories and four INDYCAR SERIES championships. The team has also been active as a competitor in the ABB Formula E Championship since the first season, with multiple racing victories and is now competing under the BMWi Andretti Motorsport banner.
