The Formula E electric race series kicks off this month, and we're going to see something somewhat unusual during each ePrix: car swapping.

Electric vehicles have been trying to make it big since the late 1800s, and the story truly seems to be repeating itself today.

At long last, American car nuts have a version of Top Gear to call our own. The project has been in the works for a long time now, and finally debuted on the History Channel this past Sunday. As we go to press server, some 17,500 readers responded to our poll: over 42 percent had already watched it, a few more said they intended to, and less than 14 percent of respondents said they weren't even interested.
