Shell continues EV support by backing Nissan Formula E team

Shell and Nissan have officially launched their new Formula E partnership at a ceremony at the Nissan Crossing in Tokyo.

Last update:

The alliance with Nissan and the all-electric racing series will help Shell to further develop its new energy and mobility solutions. Shell is partnering with Nissan because it shares Shell’s vision to improve the driving experience for EV drivers, according to a press release.

As part of the newly developed partnership, Nissan and Shell plan to explore opportunities to provide greater performance to the team in their ambition to win championships.

“We are increasingly charging electric vehicles at forecourts, homes and workplaces, while developing specialised lubricants for electric motors. This partnership will help us to develop more and cleaner mobility solutions,” said Istvàn Kapitàny, Executive Vice President Retail at Royal Dutch Shell.

A growing number of Shell retail stations in the UK, the Netherlands and China are offering the ‘Shell Recharge’ fast-charging service, which takes around 30 minutes to fully charge an electric vehicle. They also acquired NewMotion, one of Europe’s largest electric-vehicle charging providers, in 2017.

In 2018, they began offering super-fast chargers that take around 10 minutes to charge the next-generation of electric vehicles. So far Shell has installed high-powered fast chargers at 80 stations in Europe, in partnership IONITY.
