“Technology takes time to develop; just look at the evolution from ‘brick’ phones to smartphones, and desktop computers to tablets. In the same way, we believe electric cars need time to evolve and we’re just at the beginning of the electric racing era – this is very exciting.”
Alejandro Agag, CEO of FIA Formula E, is hinting at great times ahead. The next evolutionary goal is to “run the entire race with one car and one battery,” he said.
“My fear is that we electrify the fleet and our impact is not what it could be.”
Bill Ford, executive chairman of the company that bears his great-grandfathers name, here does not doubt the potential of electric cars but wants to start a “national discussion” on where the EVs take their energy from – preferably not coal.
