The Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow 01.

The Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow 01 is our first full-electric race car.

Up to 250 KW, a max. speed of 280km/h and an acceleration of 2.8 seconds to 100km/h give Stoffel Vandoorne and Nyck de Vries the tools to compete on the city tracks all around the world.

“It’s a very special feeling to be asked to drive for Mercedes-Benz EQ in Formula E, and I am honoured that the team have chosen me as one of their two drivers.”

Joining our team after winning the FIA Formula 2 Championship in 2019, it is Nycks debut season in Formula E.

“At Mercedes-Benz, we can look back on 125 years in motor racing. However, we know that Formula E is very different from any other series we have ever competed in. We are doing everything we can to achieve success, but we know that we have a steep learning curve ahead of us.”

Leading the crew is our team principal Ian James. With over 15 years of experience, the Englishman knows his way around the world of motorsports and is up for the challenges of Formula E.

Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow 01 Black Livery

We join the call for diversity.

“We have always spoken out clearly against racism and all forms of discrimination, as they do not have a place in our team, in our sport or in our society”, says Ian James.

We will contest the season’s last six races with an all-black base livery. The slogan ‘End Racism’ will be prominently displayed on the halos of the cars driven by Stoffel  and Nyck.
