Maserati to join Formula E starting in ’23
The trident takes back the track to market their emerging line of electric road cars. Italian luxury brand Maserati has announced that it will be joining the 2023 Formula E racing series as it’s first step in their return to racing. The brand has a rich history in motorsports dating back to 1926. They took the F1 World Championship with Juan Manuel Fangio in 1957 and they have not been back in open-wheel racing since. The company is introducing several new electric car lines as part of its Folgore electrification strategy that includes building cars like the Maserati GranTurismo, GranCabrio, Grecale and MC20 electric sportscars at its factories in Italy.
“We are very proud to be back where we belong as protagonists in the world of racing,” said Maserati CEO Davide Grasso. “We have a long history of world-class excellence in competition, and we are ready to drive performance in the future. In the race for more performance, luxury, and innovation, Folgore is irresistible, and it is the purest expression of Maserati. That’s why we decided to go back to racing in the FIA Formula E World Championship, meeting our customers in the city centers of the world, taking the Trident forward into the future.”
