Powering the Future

Powering the Future

Autosport presents some of engineering's greatest opportunities – and its toughest challenges. Winning demands a commitment to a constant cycle of innovation within demanding time requirements. The results must endure extreme temperatures, vibration, and race day conditions. Discover how TE is powering the future of autosport.

Milliseconds matter. It is the difference between 1st and 2nd place, the top step of the podium and the one slightly lower, the biggest trophy and big trophy. It is a race of speed, but even more — details. To capture the checkered flag, a top driver is key. But behind every winning driver — a team of engineers who theorize, test and tinker under the most extreme and demanding conditions. TE Connectivity is proud to support the Andretti Formula E team and group of engineers in their quest to be the world’s top electric race team. Inside every Andretti race car, and throughout the racing community, you will find TE connectors, sensors and cables. But beyond helping electric cars reach new levels of speed, we’re committed to sustainable, clean-energy innovations that will revolutionize how we live, work, play and learn. Our partnership with Andretti Technologies provides a unique platform to develop and test new technologies in a racing environment that will help Power the Future of racing and industry applications.
