At Tonik we're all about moving our members to a cleaner, greener future, sooner. Using smart technology for the switched on, we know that together we can make a difference. So we're thrilled to announce that we've found the perfect partner in British racing driver Alexander Sims, to champion renewable energy, low carbon technology and electric mobility!
To say that Formula E is the electric version of Formula 1 doesn’t quite do it justice! There are 11 teams,including the likes of Nissan, Jaguar, Virgin, Audi, and Alexander’s team – BMW i Andretti Motorsport. These cars deliver 250kW of power, with 200kW available during races, and a maximum speed of 280km/h (174mph). This season marks the change to Gen2 race cars with increased battery capacity to last an entire race, ending the need for mid-race car swaps. Formula E is changing the face of racing; the introduction of "Attack Mode" (initiated by the driver) and "Fan Boost" (initiated by fans) make the sport more dynamic from both a driver and a supporter point of view. All this in 13 races on 12 city street racing circuits across the globe.
This is what Alexander Sims has to say about his partnership with us, and it's safe to say that the feeling is mutual! When it comes to what we want to achieve in regards to supporting the UK’s transition to a zero-carbon future, couldn’t be more aligned. Over the course of the season we’ll be creating all sorts of content together with Alexander to help make getting excited about low carbon tech really easy – and importantly that the implications of selecting the right technology solutions for your home, workplace, or business are well understood too. So keep your eyes peeled! You can read our original partnership announcement here.
Our partnership with Alexander Sims is representative of our overall commitment to connect our members the best technologies and innovative ways to help them power their future
