14 October 2021, London: Extreme E is delighted to announce its upcoming event will be known as the Enel X Island X Prix, following title support from its Official Smart Charging Partner.
Italian-based Enel X joined forces with Extreme E earlier this year, using the series to develop and test new innovations by providing charging technology as well as the JuicePump 40 Race Edition. The company is the innovative business line of Enel and has strong roots in the energy industry working across sustainability, digitalisation and innovation.
Alejandro Agag, Founder and CEO of Extreme E, said: “I’m delighted Enel X has extended our partnership to become headline sponsor of this event. The brand is already supporting the series through its charging technology, which is invaluable as we showcase new innovations in electric motorsport.
“It made perfect sense to select our first European event in its home country to bolster its support for the series. As a brand, Enel X is at the forefront of charging technology, which is essential for the planet if we are to reduce carbon emissions, 30 per cent of which is attributed to travel.”
