Miami, Long Beach and New York have previously hosted Formula E in the United States.

“There is a big, passionate fanbase for professional sports in the city, together with strong ecological credentials which makes Portland a perfect host,” said Formula E co-founder Alberto Longo.

“The USA remains an important market for Formula E. We are delighted to maintain that critical presence and engage a new audience in the Pacific Northwest region in all-electric motorsport.”

The city-based championship is entering a new Gen3 era in 2023 with faster, more efficient and lighter cars.
