The new Fia Formula E Championship represents the world's first fully electric racing series. Foreshadowing the motor industry’s development in the coming decades, it will provide a framework for R&D while accelerating interest in electric vehicles and promoting sustainability.

Running from September 2014 to June 2015, the inaugural championship will compete at the heart of 10 globally recognised cities. Each round will be a one-day event, creating a unique and exciting experience designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fans.

Operating as an 'open championship', the series gives manufacturers the opportunity to showcase their energy technology in a competitive environmentby designing cars to technical specifications set out by the FIA.

It centres around three core values - energy, environment and entertainment - and represents a fusion of engineering, technology, sport, science, design, music and entertainment.
