Audi and Schaeffler to continue Formula E partnership

Audi and Schaeffler have agreed to continue their Formula E partnership. The development project of the Audi e-tron FE07 for the seventh FIA Formula E season has already been launched.


Schaeffler has been backing the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team as its technology partner since the series made its debut in the fall of 2014. After having partnered with the privateer ABT Sportsline team in the first three years, Schaeffler has been developing the powertrain for Formula E together with the Audi since Audi’s factory-backed entry debuted in the fall of 2017.

On a race car that is standardized for all teams in all other respects, the combination of the motor, transmission, inverter and software is regarded as the car’s centerpiece. Going forward, Schaeffler, as technology and development partner, will primarily be involved in areas such as bearing development, component manufacturing, transmission, motor and drive concept development, as well as by supporting test bench work and prototype construction.
