Formula E Hyderabad e-Prix: Hyderabad is all set to host India's first-ever Formula E race on February 1, which will be held on a racetrack near Hussain Sagar in Hyderabad, India, and will witness several veterans and newcomers to the sport. An all-electric racing sport, Formula E made its debut in Beijing in 2014. It came to be known as the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, as FIA gave it the status of a World Championship years ago in 2019. It is the only worldwide sport to have zero carbon footprint since its inception.

The Gen3 Cars: A Brief Glimpse
It’s the cars that set Formula E apart from any Motorsport competition. Gen1 and Gen2 cars were formerly used for racing; however, Gen3 cars are now all set to make their debut in Formula E. The new cars are smaller, shorter, and thinner than Gen1 and Gen2 ones; they are also better in terms of performance and have a top speed of 322 km/h. The Gen3 cars are also the most effective formula cars, for their regenerative braking systems generate roughly 40% of the energy utilised by them during a race. These cars are substantially quieter than those that run on gasoline and come with a 350kWh battery pack.
