During his three seasons in the all-electric series, Günther has taken three victories, with a best finish of ninth in the championship in 2019/20.

Günther replaces Oliver Rowland, who will drive for Mahindra in season eight.

Speaking of the announcement, he said: “It makes me feel very proud to become part of the Nissan e.dams family. The team has big ambitions in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and I’m full of motivation to contribute to the success of this project.

“To compete for one of the biggest car manufacturers in the world is an honour and a great new step in my career. I’m looking forward to this exciting journey.”

Nissan e.Dams will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing season last time out, where it finished tenth in the teams’ championship.

“We are excited to see the passion and drive Maximilian will bring to the team,” said Tommaso Volpe, Nissan global motorsports director. “During his Formula E debut season, the young driver clinched his first-ever victory and became the youngest race winner in the series’ history.”

“I am delighted to welcome Maximilian to the Nissan global motorsports family,” added Ashwani Gupta, COO of Nissan. “Maximilian brings a wealth of experience, having three Formula E race victories under his belt. I am sure that he will very quickly settle in and succeed in what is one of the most talented grids of any global motorsports series.”

Mitsunori Takaboshi will continue as Nissan’s test and reserve driver, while Jann Mardenborough will be its official simulator driver.
