About Formula E – motorsport championship for electric cars
Since 2017-18 season, Formula E is known as ABB FIA Formula E. Global car manufacturers like Jaguar, Audi, Nissan, BMW, Mahindra, Mercedes Benz and DS are among the teams that showcase and compete in the electric edition of Formula racing.
More than half a century after the first Grand Prix, Formula E was conceived in Paris in the year 2011. The race made its debut in 2014 in Beijing and is governed by the FIA (International Automobile Federation – that is also the governing body for Formula 1). The championship has been established as an open series, i.e. manufacturers may launch their own designs to race. Formula E provides a platform for the manufacturers to test and innovate in the EV space.
While F1 evolved from street motor racing to a world-class racing contest, the idea of FE is particularly targeted at developing EVs and encouraging innovation in electric vehicles. Earlier in Nov 2020, Mahindra Racing became the first manufacturer to commit to the Gen3 era of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and signed up for the generation that commences with the 2022/23 season.
