Extreme E, the sport for purpose electric off-road racing series, has announced an extension to its partnership with Bosch, who will continue as power tool supplier for the series' second season.
The power tools, power tool accessories, and measuring tools provider will continue to supply its professional equipment to service Extreme E’s electric SUV, the Odyssey 21
“I’m thrilled to extend the partnership with Bosch,” said Alejandro Agag, founder and chief executive of Extreme E.
“Continuing our hard work from Season One, Bosch provided us with the essential tools that helped us deliver Extreme E’s inaugural campaign and I look forward to building upon this relationship for Season Two, especially through our first legacy project collaboration together in Senegal.”
Bosch provides mainly cordless tools that are critical to the sport-for-purpose championship, can withstand the toughest Extreme E racing locations, and and are forward-thinking in the wider technology and innovation sectors.
As part of the partnership extension, Bosch tools will specifically be used to assist in construction of X Prix event sites, which are held in the most remote corners of the planet to highlight the climate crisis.
Alongside providing support on race weekends, Bosch will be committing resources to Extreme E’s Senegal legacy project.
They aim to educate the local community of Lac Rose on how to use their tools in addition to leaving the equipment behind for their use in Senegal when Extreme E leaves. The German brand’s tools will be utilised to aid the Lac Rose citizens to rebuild schools and houses.
Henk Becker, chief executive of Bosch Power Tools, added: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Extreme E. Our professional power tools are made for the toughest applications – very similar to those conditions and challenges Extreme E is taking on.
“We fully support the championship’s purpose to raise awareness for climate change and share its dedication towards innovation and performance.”
