myenergi, pioneer of the world’s first eco-smart EV charging device, has partnered with the Hispano Suiza Xite Energy Team as principal sponsor for the 2021 Extreme E season. As part of the collaboration, the team’s 550hp Odyssey 21 SUV will feature myenergi livery for each of the season’s five ground-breaking events.
Led by team manager Juli Mundet Caballero and piloted by drivers Oliver Bennett and Christine Giampaoli Zonca, the UK outfit will make its debut at the season-opening Desert X Prix, which takes place in Saudi Arabia between 2-4 April.
Extreme E, the all-electric, all-terrain championship, will see SUVs race through some of the most demanding environments on earth, including the Arctic Circle and Amazon rainforest. The series aims to highlight the impact of climate change on some of the most remote and notably-affected locations.
Jordan Brompton, co-founder and CMO of myenergi, commented: “Pushing the boundaries of technology and capability, Extreme E is set to revolutionise global motorsport. Combining entertainment with environmental activism, the championship will raise global awareness of the widespread impacts of global warming and the climate emergency.
“We’re excited to announce our involvement as principal sponsor of the Hispano Suiza Xite Energy Team, a collaboration that reflects myenergi’s pioneering vision, innovative technology and passion for sustainability.”
Oliver Bennett, racing driver for the Hispano Suiza Xite Energy Team, added: “Welcoming myenergi on board as principal sponsor is a significant milestone. The company is renowned for its sustainable views and world-leading products. Our two brands are a perfect fit and we’re looking forward to working closely together as the series progresses.
“Highlighting the possibilities of electrification, while showcasing the implications of climate change, Extreme E is firmly positioned to become the exciting, energetic, next-generation of motorsport.”
