The battery-powered Formula E machines promote sustainability and a greener world.
The cars of formula E have rapidly evolved over the last eight seasons and Gen3 technology has been introduced this season.
Gen3 is the fastest, lightest, most powerful and efficient car in its history.
The top speed is 320 kmph, a 100kmph faster than the Gen1 cars. The Gen2 cars touch speeds over 280kmph.
The power output has been increased to 350kw in the Gen3 cars and with regeneration, it could go up to 600kw.
The latest cars are also 60kg lighter than the previous generation and weigh at 840kg.
Formula E sees India as a huge market and hopes to have a long future in the country.
“It took us too long to get to India. We will be here until they want us,” Formula E co-founder Alberto Longo had said after marking the 100-day countdown to the race.
