ABOUT FORMULA E


1. Why are the Formula E races directly in the streets in the middle of the cities?

Formula E believes that cities are the natural environment of electric cars and that having the races on street circuits in the middle of the city will promote the use and increase the popularity of electric vehicles.


2. How loud is a Formula E car? 

Formula E’s cars are hardly louder than an average gasoline powered car (80 dB for 70 dB respectively) and the futurist noise they make come from their tires on the circuit, their aerodynamics and their electric drivetrain.


3. Why do drivers change cars during the race? Why not simply change the battery?

Drivers have to change cars during the race because today’s electric technology doesn’t allow a car to go full speed for an hour. One of the purposes of Formula E is, in fact, to accelerate the development of battery technologies and electric drivetrains.


As for not changing the battery instead of the car, for safety reasons it is not allowed to swap car batteries during a race. In order to respect the FIA’s safety norms, the batteries are sealed so removing them quickly is impossible.
