We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Envision Virgin Racing, one of the leading proponents of Formula E – the highest form of e-propulsion motorsport.
“The team’s passion, professionalism and commitment to the thrill of electric vehicles matches our own and it’s going to be an incredibly exciting time working with them.”
Sylvain Filippi, Managing Director of Envision Virgin Racing, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming such an iconic brand like Harley-Davidson into our portfolio of partners. Like us, Harley-Davidson shares our passion for developing cutting edge technology and sustainable mobility, and between us we can now help showcase that on two and four wheels.
