quote:BMW has confirmed that it will join Formula E as an official manufacturer for the 2018/19 season, and will build a brand-new powertrain for partner Andretti.
BMW has been affiliated with Andretti since the 2015/16 season and in April registered itself as a manufacturer team for season five.
BMW will now ramp up its involvement further with Andretti, ahead of the American team becoming the official works squad in 2018/19.
"The changes we required for our involvement will come into effect in Season 5," said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt.
"These include, for example, the omission of the car changeover.
"We are already seeing in our development work that colleagues from the production and motorsport departments are collaborating in a completely new way.
"The result is new paths, which we are forging together in the matter of electric drivetrains.
"In Formula E, we will demonstrate both our innovative expertise and our sporting spirit.
"The series represents a completely new challenge for us – a challenge we are happy to take on together with Andretti Formula E.
"Andretti is the ideal partner for this mission. The name needs no introduction in international motor racing.
