YOKOHAMA, Japan, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan Motor Co.

Nissan Formula E, 2nd Place on the Podium at Tokyo Home Race.

VOICE CHARGE uses a device that converts the voices of supporters emitted into a microphone to electricity. Since installation on 7 March 2024 at NISSAN CROSSING (Nissan's brand center in Ginza, Tokyo) many people from Japan and abroad have voiced their support. These messages and energy were delivered to the Nissan Formula E Team.

As a result, Oliver Rowland qualified on pole position and finished on the podium in second place, while Sacha Fenestraz started the race in 20th place and ultimately came home in 11th place.

The digest film released today shows how these messages and the electricity charged by fan cheers were delivered to the Nissan Formula E Team and how their energy sustained the team and made the race so much fun.

With more ABB FIA Formula E World Championships planned across the world, VOICE CHARGE will remain installed at NISSAN CROSSING until Wednesday 24 April 2024.
