The 2018 Marrakesh ePrix (formally the 2018 ABB FIA Formula E Marrakesh ePrix) was a Formula E motor race held at the Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan in the Agdal district of Marrakesh, Morocco on 13 January 2018. It was the third round of the 2017–18 Formula E season and the second running of the event. The 33-lap race was won by Mahindra driver Felix Rosenqvist after starting from third place.
Buemi won the pole position by recording the fastest lap in qualifying and maintained his startline advantage heading into the first corner. Buemi held the lead but had Bird and Rosenqvist close behind him for much of the first half of the race until a full course yellow was necessitated when André Lotterer stopped on track with a hardware failure on his car. Buemi retained the lead after the field made their pit stops for the switch into a second car but was put under pressure from Rosenqvist who eventually passed him with four laps to go. Rosenqvist maintained the lead for the rest of the race to clinch his second consecutive victory of the season and the third of his career.
