British sports car manufacturer TVR has announced a sponsorship agreement with the ABB Formula E World Championship that will see it partner the series for the Monaco and London E-Prix.

Despite not having a team entry in the single seater series, the agreement signals the brand’s intentions to develop a range of electric sports cars. It will soon start production of its V8-engined Griffith.

TVR Chairman, Les Edgars, said, “Our collaboration with the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and on-site activations at the Monaco and London E-Prix not only demonstrate our commitment to revolutionizing the TVR brand, but to EVs, and becoming a sustainable, net-zero business. Our plans to bring TVR EVs to market are well underway, with the first of two models to be released shortly after the release of the newest Griffith and Limited-Edition Griffith EV models in 2024.”
