The Italian brand is ending a 66-year spell of not competing in international single-seaters when it makes its debut in the all-electric series next year.

It’s good news for Formula E after Audi, BMW, and Mercedes all announced their exits from the series last season.

2023 will mark Formula E’s ninth season and the introduction of the all-new of the Gen3 car.

“We are very proud to be back where we belong as protagonists in the world of racing,” said Maserati CEO Davide Grasso.“We are powered by passion and innovative by nature. We have a long history of world-class excellence in competition and we are ready to drive performance in the future.

“In the race for more performance, luxury, and innovation, Folgore – our electrified line and it is the purest expression of Maserati. 

“That’s why we decided to go back to racing in the FIA Formula E World Championship, meeting our customers in the city centres of the world, taking the Trident forward into the future.”

Formula E CEO Jamie Reigle added: “We are delighted Maserati will join the Gen3 era of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and play a defining role reimagining the future of motorsport.

“Formula E races in the heart of the most iconic cities in the world and is followed passionately by a progressive global audience. Our millions of fans will be thrilled to see Maserati line up on the grid as one of the world’s elite electric car brands.”
