Since its inception, Formula E had to overcome criticism from his detractors, who said the series had no future. However, the category will dispute its seventh season and has set the course for the emergence of new electric car competitions.
The reason for the rise of these races with electric motors is partly explained in the figures from the World Economic Forum, revealing that almost half of the so-called millennials consider climate change to be their main concern.
The drive towards a more sustainable future has accelerated at a relentless pace in recent times. Like the global understanding of the damage that is being done to our planet and global temperatures in general, electric motoring and, crucially, its relevance to life and transportation today, is on the rise.
