FIA officially sanctions Tesla-based race series

Formula E is currently the largest all-electric racing series – but it runs sophisticated, bespoke cars and is very expensive to participate in. However, a new option has become available – a new set of races named the Electric Production Car Series.

As the name suggests, the races will be run by near-production cars. In fact, it will exclusively use the Tesla Model S, which last week passed its official FIA crash test.
