When the first all-electric powered racing car in the brandís history is presented to the public in the BMW Welt double cone, we will be making history. Be there live via the BMW Motorsport social media channels when the BMW iFE.18 is unveiled in front of guests at BMW Welt and millions of fans across the globe.

The heart of the BMW iFE.18 is the innovative powertrain, which is hidden deep inside the single-seater car. It was developed using the expertise of the same engineers who also designed the drive for the BMW i3. BMW i and BMW Motorsport are working on the Formula E project in tandem, thereby facilitating a technology transfer between series development and motorsport unprecedented in this form.

From 19:30 CEST, you can experience the future at first hand, and see the all-electric racing car up close and personal in BMW Welt. And the two BMW works drivers contesting Season 5 of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship will be on site to sign autographs. Another premiere awaits you in the evening hours. The BMW iFE.18 will contest its first race - virtually. The race car will then do some laps on the late-night streets of Munich at 22:00 CEST via motion mapping technology Ė before embarking on its world tour.

The spectacular motion mapping campaign will also fascinate people in Oslo (17/9), London (20/9), New York (24/9), Detroit (26/9), Mexico City (29/9) and Hong Kong (4/10) in the weeks after the official launch. Then, the BMW iFE.18ís first real race is scheduled for 15th December 2018 in Diriyah.
