Bio‑Hybrid at Formula E in Berlin

A prominent appearance for our Bio‑Hybrid in the capital city: More than 400 Schaeffler employees from all over Germany watched the German round of the electric Formula E racing series, witnessing the triumph of Schaeffler’s ambassador and Formula E Champion Lucas di Grassi at close range. The “Green Wall” of the fans in the grandstand caused a sensation once again. 

Just like our Bio‑Hybrid did on the night before the race: At the official evening event, at which our two drivers, Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi, dropped by as well, a Passenger and a Cargo version were showcased and proved to be real eye-catchers. Besides the majority of the guests, the two professional race drivers also used the occasion to see the Bio‑Hybrid “live” for a change. 

As a Schaeffler startup we took advantage of the opportunity of this year’s German race to present our new mobility concept to many Schaeffler employees as well and to obtain feedback. As in the case of the Bio‑Hybrid that was created from scratch in our parent company, Schaeffler has also distinguished itself as a co-founder, pioneer and one of the most successful players in Formula E that was launched in 2014. In 2016/2017, the team won the drivers’ title and the teams’ championship a year later. Since 2015 Schaeffler has been contributing its know-how to the development of the powertrain. In doing so, the company demonstrates its expertise in forward-thinking technologies also in the innovative electric racing series while presenting its ideas for sustainable mobility for tomorrow. We’re proud to be part of this.
