Electrifying these racing industry helps not only reduce environmental impact in the sector but also helps show how far electric mobility has come. For example, the 3rd generation Formula E racer front powertrain adding 250kW to the 350kW powering the car at the rear (600kW, or approx. 800 hp). The Gen 3 has a 284kg battery pack with 51kWh capacity. Having the E-Prix here in Africa will give a great opportunity to racing enthusiasts to experience the awesome world of electric racing. It will also play a role in helping build a new following in this part of the world, especially with the younger generation.
If you are interested in electric open-wheel racing, Formula E has released Formula E Unplugged, a 15-video race-by-race recap of Season 7.
They are assembled below, should you wish to binge-watch them all.
Episode 1 » The Start Of A New Era
A new season, a new challenge. Formula E returns to the streets of Diriyah, Saudi Arabia for another season of all-electric, single-seater racing. Jaguar Racing are hoping to make a statement with their new driver pairing, as team leader Mitch Evans is joined by Sam Bird, the British driver making a bold move after six successful seasons with the same team.
Called the Ariya Single Seater, it serves to demonstrate “how the all-electric Nissan Ariya road car powertrain could be used in a bespoke single seater racing car chassis”.
The firm has not yet confirmed that it plans to produce a functioning, full-sized example – nor indeed plans for a dedicated race series using the car – but Autocar understands that Nissan hopes to produce a working version for dynamic displays at Formula E races.
The concept is related to the production SUV in more than just name: the front is decorated with a similar, light-up V motif, while the side is claimed to take inspiration “from the Ariya’s fluid and efficient surfaces, exaggerated to a maximum in carbonfibre”.
Formula E – The first season 8 livery reveal happened today at COP26 as Envision unveiled their first car as full owners of a team.
Envision teamed up with Virgin Racing in season 5 at the start of the Gen 2 era and, after three seasons as the team’s title sponsor, will now take over from Virgin as the team now becomes Envision Racing.
“We would like to thank Virgin for all their support and wish them every success for the future,” said Envision Racing’s Managing Director, Sylvain Filippi. “We are raring to go for the new season and hugely motivated about the potential of Formula E in supporting sustainable progress.”
The team’s season 8 livery was also unveiled and marked itself as dramatically different to the silver, red and purple designs that had identified the team until now. The Envision team will now head to track with a green and blue paint job, which represents the company’s push for renewable energy.
