Lord Drayson on Future Electric Cars
While electric cars have long been talked about as a possibly rather dull solution to the need to reduce carbon emissions, few people expected the whizzy world of motor racing to provide the thrust for their emergence into everyday life.
However, Formula E, the new racing series being launched by the FIA, motorsport's governing body, is to begin a 10-race programme in cities including Rome and Rio de Janeiro next year.
Lord Drayson, the former science minister who runs one of the first teams to sign up, expects this to pave the way for all-electric cars to account for 50pc of new car sales by 2020. Britain is now leading the way in much of the technology.
