“With the economic profile of our region, Eindhoven is thé preferred host for formula-E,” states Eindhoven alderman Stijn Steenbakkers (Economy, Brainport, Education, Innovation and Sport). “If we look at the business in Eindhoven, the Automotive Campus in Helmond and more broadly at Brainport Eindhoven as a whole – it all fits in a perfect combination. Technology and innovation come together here in leading multinationals and promising startups.

We can show the world how we handle social challenges here. We have key techniques for a sustainable world. From that perspective, the E-prix is a beautiful stage and décor. Right through the city center; that will be an impressive experience for everyone. I am convinced that the event will have an unprecedented spinoff for the entire community. This gives us the opportunity to be an inspiration and a driving force for the whole society to live more sustainably. ”
