Drive specialist maxon and Swiss car racer Sébastien Buemi team up to share their passion for precision, efficiency, and emobility.

Racer Sébastien Buemi knows what precision and efficiency are. After all, the former F1 driver has already won 13 races in the new Formula E and was the world champion in 2016.

Fully electric race series


Being fast is not enough to be a frontrunner in this fully electric race series, a driver must also be efficient with the available energy, or the battery will be empty before he reaches the finish line.

That’s why Sébastien Buemi is a perfect match for maxon, whose high-end electric motors can be found not just in Mars rovers, but also in the Ad-Blue injection systems used in Formula 1 race cars.

maxon has decided to collaborate with Sébastien Buemi, and the parties signed the contract on September 9.

To celebrate the occasion, Buemi visited maxon in Obwalden to get to tour the company and meet the maxon team. Buemi was impressed with the cleanrooms and the tiny drives with a diameter of only four millimetres.

Swiss collaboration


When the Formula E starts into its sixth season on November 22, the Swiss collaboration will be represented by the maxon logo on Buemi’s racing suit. Buemi will also act as an ambassador for maxon.

He says: “I’m proud of working with a Swiss high-tech company and being part of the maxon family.”

The joy is mutual. Eugen Elmiger says: “Sébastien and the Formula E in general are a great match for maxon. After all, we are increasingly becoming a systems provider, and the e-mobility market is particularly interesting in this regard.”

The Swiss specialist for quality drives


maxon is a developer and manufacturer of brushed and brushless DC motors. as well as gearheads, encoders, controllers, and entire mechatronic systems.

maxon drives are used wherever the requirements are particularly high: in NASA’s Mars rovers, in surgical power tools, in humanoid robots, and in precision industrial applications, for example.

To maintain its leadership in this demanding market, the company invests a considerable share of its annual revenue in research and development.

Worldwide, maxon has more than 3,000 employees at nine production sites and is represented by sales companies in more than 30 countries.
