07: Racing toward a carbon free future
It’s been predicted that there will be nine million electric cars on the road by 2030 – and with sales of pure electric vehicles (EVs) going up by almost 160 per cent in July 2019 (despite a general demand for new cars declining) – it’s impossible to ignore that the revolution is here!
In this week’s episode of Earth Unscrewed you’ll hear from Envision Virgin Racing – a key team in Formula E – the all-electric motorsport championship which is proving that EVs can be just as sleek and powerful as their gas-guzzling counterparts.
Sylvain Filippi, managing director of Envision Virgin Racing Formula E Racing team talks to presenters Helen Scales & Seyi Rhodes about the growing global interest in the vision of a carbon-free future – and how his team is doing everything they can to accelerate the creation of planet saving, climate change solutions.
Listen in to learn all about what’s changed in Formula E over the last year, how the cars are developing, what the roadmap is looking like for future technological improvements, and just how long it will be before EVs are the fastest cars on the planet.
