ABB FIA Formula E championship coming to Vancouver in 2022

October 25, 2021 | By Anthony Capkun

October 25, 2021 – Mark your calendars, because the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is coming to Canada.

The international racing series for fully electric single-seater race cars will be hosted in Vancouver in July 2022.

“The metropolitan setting of Vancouver offers the ideal platform to highlight ABB’s technologies for e-mobility, smart cities, sustainability, and energy solutions, amplified by the appeal of the championship,” said Éric Deschênes, ABB Canada.

ABB’s partnership with Formula E began in January 2018. The championship, says the company, serves as a competitive platform to test and develop relevant electrification and digitalization technologies, “helping refine the design and functionality of electric vehicle components and accelerate the transition and uptake of e-mobility on a global scale”.


Coinciding with the championship, ABB Canada will donate up to a total of $50,000 in electrical chargers to the City of Vancouver, based on the city’s needs.

The Formula E cars will take to the streets of Vancouver during Canadian E-Fest, which will include: the E-Prix, an electric single-seater car race as part of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship; E-Live, a 2-night concert series; E-Volve, a 2-day conference staged by C2 International; and E-Sports, a tournament gathering virtual gamers across Canada.
