About Formula E:

Formula E is a new FIA single-seater championship and the world's first fully-electric racing series.

The inaugural season kick-started in Beijing in September 2014 and runs until June 2015, competing in 10 of the world's most bustling cities including Miami, Berlin and London. A total of 10 teams, each with two drivers, race on temporary city-centre circuits creating a unique and exciting series designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fans. With the significant amount of logististical orchestration involved in transporting the equipment, vehicles and teams from race to race, founding partner DHL helps Formula E to deliver on its “E” promise in several ways. For example: DHL mapped out the greenest global race route for the series to enable equipment to be transported via boat instead of airway in some instances, which uses notably less fuel.

Formula E and DHL together aim to represent a vision for the future of the motor industry, serving as a framework for R&D around the electric vehicle, accelerating general interest in these cars and promoting clean energy and sustainability.
