FORMULA E: BRANSON AND DI CAPRIO BACK IT. 2 VIDEOS

From the high tech, highly creative world of motor racing, Formula E arrives with a bang. Well, less loud and less fast but incredibly  inventive and with a truly social purpose: zero pollution, to encourage the electric car market to develop. And it has the official backing of two big names internationally: Sir Richard Branson and the Hollywood artist Leonardo di Caprio have set up teams.

But don’t think the cars are boring, slow and silent. They can go from 0 to 100km/h in less than 2.5s. The most extraordinary aspect of the cars are their efficiency.  They claim it has 100% of energy consumption. All the regulations are aimed to make the machines as efficient as possible.

Learn from ex Formula 1 driver Lucas di Grassi all the technical details  on this BBC programme.

  1. Miguel Sacramento says :

    Formula E is the natural evolution of formula racing cars, including formula 1. Car racing begun with street cars and most technical developments in car racing returns to street cars. Sales of hybrid and electric cars are continuously increasing, therefore, Formula E is just following the trend.
