IQONIQ CEO, Kazim Atilla, said: “This partnership with Envision Virgin Racing is another perfect example of our growing footprint across motorsport and we are very much looking forward to supporting the team to connect with not just its current fanbase, but also new fans around the world. 2021 is shaping up to be an exciting year with a new driver line-up as the teams prepare to kick off the new season in Chile. Once launched, the IQONIQ app will, among a host of other engaging elements, give Envision Virgin Racing fans unrivalled access to the team and their season-long journey ahead.”
