Now with ten host cities confirmed for the first series, you can now visit for all the latest news, pics and information on the series, ahead of its launch next year.

Details on the website include information on the new Spark-Renault SRT_01E Formula E car including an interactive 3D model, gallery, full specification and an audio preview of how it will sound.

Visitors to the website will be able to find out more about the event format plus profiles on the two teams already confirmed to take part –Drayson Racing and Team China-as well as videos and interviews. FIA has also just announced that a third team- Andretti Autosport- best known for its part in the IndyCar Series-has signed up as the first US participants to the new Formula E series. Details of this too, are available on the new site.

Formula E Chief Marketing Officer Jaume Sallares said: “We’re delighted to be launching the first phase of our brand new website today, which we hope will give people a better insight into the exciting new FIA Formula E Championship. Over the coming months we will be adding many more new features such as an interactive Carbon Calculator, profiles on new joining teams and drivers, detailed circuit locations and layouts, as well as information on how to purchase tickets to the Formula E events. We hope the new site becomes the ‘meeting point’ for everyone interested in learning more about Formula E.”

By hosting the series in major cities, Formula E aims to promote the power and performance of battery-powered cars, in the kind of environments they were made for.

The final calendar of host cities – including London, Rome, Los Angeles, Miami, Beijing, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Putrajaya, Bangkok, and Berlin – will now be presented to the FIA for their approval at the September 2013 World Motor Sport Council.

During the races, ten teams with two drivers each will participate, with races lasting around one hour, using Formula cars capable of reaching speeds of more than 137mph with zero emissions.
