ABB Formula E set to debut in India

February 9, 2023 5:08 pm

ABB technology facilitates multiple modes of sustainable transportation in India, from railways and the metro to cars and ships.

The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is ready for its first race in India this weekend, with the inaugural Hyderabad E-Prix.

The 18-turn, 2.835km circuit winds around the streets of the City of Pearls, alongside the Hussain Sagar lake. Featuring long straights, the track is sure to show off the increased power of this season’s new Gen3 race car.

Daniela Lužˇanin, Head of the ABB Formula E partnership, said: “The Hyderabad E-Prix is a great opportunity to showcase the future of e-mobility to a new market – one of ABB’s largest – particularly given our role as Official Charging Partner. Although it is a new market for the Championship, ABB has been a key player in driving progress in India over the past 100 years.”

This showcase of sustainable transportation, which is a test bed for the most innovative e-mobility technologies, reflects ABB’s commitment to this sector in India. More than 300 electric locomotives on India’s railways run on ABB-made traction converters and motors, while 80 percent of metros deploy ABB drives, switchgear and electrification panels. ABB also provided traction technology and switchgear for India’s first semi high speed train – Vande Bharat. The ABB charging stations installed across the country have supported more than 5 million

kilometers of travel. In addition, 65 percent of cars manufactured in India are painted using ABB robots. ABB robots are also used for painting and battery assembly in one of the largest electric scooter factories in the world, which is located in Tamil Nadu.

Sanjeev Sharma, Country Managing Director, ABB India, said: “ABB employs more than 8,000 people in India, working on various technology solutions to help the country meet its sustainability goals. The hosting of the ABB Formula E FIA World Championship in India is well aligned with our nation’s growing importance in the global climate action landscape. The E-Prix host state of Telangana, is also home to our technology, which is present in a wide range of projects, helping to increase energy efficiency, improve reliability and provide better access to clean drinking water.”
