Since its announcement, E1 Series has created great expectations for how it can impact the planet in a sustainable way, while creating a unique precedent as the first 100% electric powerboat competition.
Time moves forward, and so does the work. As the weeks go by, the arrival of new teams willing to contribute to the construction of a sustainable maritime future is confirmed, and while that is happening, the category further increases the expectations of the series after releasing a one-minute trailer, but quite complete about what is about to happen.
Spring 2023 will officially see the first E1 Series race, made up of 12 teams and 24 drivers visiting 10 locations worldwide to send a message that transcends the sporting, and this is how Alejandro Agag, one of the creators of this new sport, describes it: “The series has a goal that goes far beyond sports”.
“Today, the only solution for the future is electric propulsion,” says Rodi Basso, co-creator with Agag of E1 Series. His assertions make a lot of sense in a world that fights to reduce the environmental temperature to avoid non-reversible consequences caused by the climate change, and in view of this, one of the measures for the environmental conservation is to reduce the carbon footprint, but also to preserve the marine ecosystems.
The oceans play a fundamental role in this battle after absorbing the temperature of the atmosphere and maintaining the balance, however, currently the capabilities to perform this task are affected due to the current increasing pace of life that people lead, therefore, the idea of E1 Series consists of immense value.
“Just as Formula E and Extreme E promote electric vehicles, E1 Series wants to promote electric boats,” Agag points out, as well as describing the impact the races will have on sports enthusiasts. “Imagine the cities in the background as the boats race at top speed, side by side in tight turns. It will be a global hit.”
All this and more is perfectly described in the latest trailer for the E1 Series, the 100% electric boat series.
