Vyralize: The Formula E team has publicly demoed the Spark-Renault SRT_01E at CES 2014 in Las Vegas.
Lol @ the range of these things. It seems like a good idea to help develop the electric vehicle but it'll also show off to the world their painful limitations such as their range and cost. They aren't even that fast right now either, 0-60 in 3s is really slow for a supposedly top tier single seat purpose built racing car IMO- a mere Formula Renault 2 litre is easily faster and that's the bottom rung of single seat Formula racers
I understand a need to get consumers in electric cars (most of them, anyway, as most people can get where they need to go just fine in the distance-limited vehicles - they're going to have to REALLY come down in price first, though), but why race cars? Slower, longer to refuel, and less run time...what's the advantage?
This isn't right. The car sounds like it has had its nuts cut off.
All electric :(
