Nissan e.dams has completed the second day of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship official preseason test with Sebastien Buemi finishing the afternoon session third fastest in Valencia.

Buemi recorded a time of 1 minute, 17.473 seconds in the final session of the day – only 0.131 of a second off the fastest time.

Earlier the Swiss driver topped the times in the first session after lunch. His time aboard the No. 23 car was the fourth fastest time overall for the day.

Buemi won the Formula E driver’s championship in season two and holds the series records for most wins, poles and fastest race laps. The e.dams team is a three-time team’s championship winner.

The Nissan e.dams team has one more day of testing on Friday when the official series preseason test comes to a close.

Nissan is joining Formula E as the first Japanese carmaker to participate in the innovative series and as the global leader in electric cars, with more than 365,000 Nissan LEAF vehicles sold.

Nissan’s Formula E program will show a new “performance side” of Nissan Intelligent Mobility – the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society.
