The electric racer will first hit the track this September by taking part in the inaugural season of the FIA Formula E Championship racing series.

For the inaugural, all of the vehicles will basically be identical, aside for some paint differences and logos.

As Mahindra Racing notes, the Formula E racer can hit a top speed of 140 mph.

If successful, the FIA Formula E Championship racing series will be the springboard that EVs need to be viewed by the general public as legitimate vehicles.

More importantly, most all of the teams involved in Formula E say that the tech used in the racers will definitely trickle down into everyday EVs within a few years’ time.  That’s how it works with the various ICE racing series, so we expect no different with Formula E.  In this way, Formula E is more than just a race.  It represents the future of electric vehicles.

The excitement of ICE racing is fundamentally based on the insane sound that the engines produce. What are they doing to compensate for that?

Looking forward to see a competitor to F1 🙂
