In 2014 we created a special team with one simple purpose, to use our platform to inspire generations to tackle climate change and transition to E-mobility and Renewable energy.
Owned by leading digital energy company Envision Group, Envision Virgin Racing is one of the founding and leading outfits in the FIA Formula E World Championship – A Championship that is more than just a racing series, it's a battle for the future. Our cars, powered by pure electricity, pave the way for the cars of tomorrow.
The team was part of the series’ inaugural race held in Beijing and has gone on to compete in all races to date. During that time, the team has scored more than 800 points, including 11 race wins and 26 podiums, making it one of the highest points scorers of all time.
