Formula E is a new FIA championship featuring Formula cars powered exclusively by electric energy. It represents a vision for the future of the motor industry over the coming decades. The FIA Formula E Championship will be launched in 2014. It will run exclusively in major international cities and it has all the assets needed to reach a worldwide audience, becoming a bridge between the old and new era of industry and motorsport.

When the news was first announced, there was a lot of disbelief about having an electric racing car pretending to be a racing car. I wondered as well how would a single seater racing car sound like. And how fast could it go? We have had electric racing done before and electric car competitions but at a world class level with real racing?

Anyway, the promoters have released a promo video of their new series. The racing is still a long way away, first race is scheduled for 2014, the same year F1 goes through a huge engine change to 1.6 turbocharged engines. Interesting time don't you think?
