With the inaugural Hyderabad E-Prix this weekend, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will have its first race in India.

The 18-turn, 2.835km circuit winds around the streets of Hyderabad, alongside the Hussain Sagar lake.

Daniela Lužanin, Head of the ABB Formula E partnership speaking on the occasion said: “The Hyderabad E-Prix is a great opportunity to showcase the future of e-mobility to a new market – one of ABB’s largest - particularly given our role as Official Charging Partner. Although it is a new market for the Championship, ABB has been a key player in driving progress in India over the past 100 years.”

“The hosting of the ABB Formula E FIA World Championship in India is well aligned with our nation’s growing importance in the global climate action landscape. The E-Prix host state of Telangana, is also home to our technology, which is present in a wide range of projects, helping to increase energy efficiency, improve reliability and provide better access to clean drinking water”, further added Sanjeev Sharma, Country Managing Director, ABB India.

After Hyderabad, the series heads to Cape Town on February 25th. The season 9 calendar features 16 races in 11 global locations.
