Formula E has continued to bring new innovations to the table since its conception in September of 2014 in Bejing where the first electric street car race took place.
The FIA Formula E Championship was created to demonstrate the potential of sustainable mobility. The race includes 20 all-electric cars that are manned, owned, and built by some of the most renowned names in the world, not only in the racing industry, including Senna, Prost, Piquet, Andretti, Audi, Renault, and DiCaprio. This is a competition that can’t be beat!
The main objective of Formula E is to accelerate the development of electric automobiles to make them more road friendly, easier to use, more affordable, and just overall better than the models on the road now. So far, there have been advancements made in batteries and charging times thanks to Formula E, but there is more yet to come.
The electric cars in Formula E have to meet rigid requirements in order to participate. First, they must meet certain length, height, and width measurements as well as include a twofold steel wishbone suspension that is pushrod worked with twin dampers and torsion bars so the ride is exceptionally controlled.
One of the more spectacular features on the Formula E cars are their batteries. Since the Formula E races last about an hour, the batteries uses must be powerful enough to propel the cars at full speed the entire time without draining.
The advancements made in this one competition alone excite us all here at JouleHub. That’s why we plan to take part in the 2020 Formula E championship!
Even though we are still in the development stage, we are going at it full speed ahead! We are in the process of developing a team that will help to make such great advancements in electric car technology and help JouleHub get to the Formula E championship.
