It’s been a busy few months for the Formula E electric race series, with the new championship launching in the United States this year.
But as it stands, there’s no shortage of electric car news to keep the fans excited.
The new championship, which was announced by electric car company Team Energi, is being run by the French manufacturer and, for the first time in its history, will be supported by a global network of drivers.
It’s the first major series to be run by an international car manufacturer, and we’ve put together this exclusive list of some of the best electric car photos from around the world.
In the UK, a new brand is set to emerge in 2018 with Team EVO, a brand new electric car manufacturer based in Oxford, United Kingdom.
Formula E has been in the spotlight over the last couple of years due to the amount of interest in electric cars from Formula 1 fans and motorsport fans alike, as well as the development of new technology.
Team EVO CEO, Marc VDS, told BBC Sport that the team was “very excited” about the new FIA regulations for electric racing, which will be unveiled in the coming months.
“It’s a very important step forward for the sport and for electric cars, which have never really been in a good position,” he said.
“Formula 1 cars were limited in the amount they could race, they had to race in limited numbers, so it was only ever going to be a one-off race for the FIA.”
With Formula E we’re really looking forward to the new regulations for the series and we’re very excited to be part of it.
“Formula e is not the only electric car series to have been built in the UK and run by a company based there.
In 2018, Ford will run its own series in the city of Bristol, while Porsche is planning its own endurance series in Bristol.
It’s also worth noting that while electric cars are becoming more popular in the world, they are still far from a mainstream form of transportation.
Tesla has been very successful at making electric cars as mainstream as possible, but they’re still a far cry from mainstream cars.
