They say all good ideas start on the back of a napkin. The first laptop, the original Mini and, as of the evening of March 3, 2011, the idea for an all-electric street racing series all started out as nothing more than scribbles on a napkin.
Written in just a few words in a restaurant in Paris were the beginnings of what would become the world’s first all-electric international single-seater championship. The beginnings of Formula E. Authored by FIA President Jean Todt and Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag, together the two developed the series as a means to demonstrate the potential of sustainable mobility to help create a better, cleaner world.
Since making its global debut in the grounds of the Olympic Park in Beijing in 2014, Formula E has grown into a global entertainment brand with motorsport at its heart. Now, with 11 teams and 22 drivers on the grid, the Championship has become a destination for the world’s best motorsport teams and talent.
The 2018/19 season sees the radical Gen2 car make its debut on the city streets for the very first time. With double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, the Gen2 racers can go the whole race distance, making mid-race car swaps a thing of the past but also demonstrating the progress made in all-electric mobility With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds and increased power means more action on track and, with just one car per driver, there’s everything to lose.
