Spark-Renault unveils electric race car
FORMULA E’s new fullyelectric race car, the complicatedly named SparkRenault SRT_01E, was given its first public demonstration this week, with a high-speed display around the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
Capable of speeds in excess of 150mph, the zero emission single-seater was driven by former Formula One driver Lucas di Grassi who gave invited guests and onlookers their first chance to see and hear the cars that will compete in the new FIA Formula E Championship – the world’s first fully-electric racing series beginning in September.
Formula E is a new FIA championship which will compete on 10 city-centre circuits around the globe – including London, Beijing and Los Angeles.
Ten teams, each with two drivers, will go head-to-head to create a racing series designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fan whilst accelerating the electric vehicle market and promoting sustainability.
