We'll admit, the idea of the Formula E is an exciting one to us – all-electric, open-wheel racers silently zipping around on the streets of the world's greatest cities should appeal to any futurist/racing enthusiast. As the series approaches the start of the inaugural, ten-race season in Beijing, we're learning a bit more about FE and what it hopes to accomplish.
Xcar has a great new video that features a number of conversations with those involved in Formula E, including Formula One icon Alain Prost, Series President Alejandro Agag and driver Lucas di Grassi. They talk about what the series hopes to achieve, how it's different than (and similar to) F1 and how it will impact civilian-spec electric cars.
Take a look below for the video.
