Formula E Breaks New Ground, Introduces Fastest-Ever GEN3 EVO

Blink, and you will miss it; Formula E has unveiled the latest evolution of the GEN3 Evo challenger, accelerating 30 percent faster than the current F1 car and 36 percent faster than its predecessor, bringing racing performance to a new level.
