The newly established electric propulsion category, Formula E, has introduced the Dallara SRT 01E. In the first season, all competing teams will have to use this Dallara chassis, which in turn uses the powertrain supplied by McLaren. Only in the second season will the door be opened to other designers and suppliers of powertrains.
At the presentation of the car, they also confirmed the technological cooperation with Renault. The electric racing series will be on viewers in the 2014 season and will operate under the auspices of the FIA International Automobile Federation.
In the first season, ten teams and twenty racers are expected to compete, and the races will take place mainly on street tracks. Currently confirmed venues are London, Rome, Los Angeles, Miami, Beijing, Putrajaya, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.
Former Formula One racer Lucas di Grassi took a test drive of a Formula E car on the streets of Los Angeles last month.
