The new sounds of Formula E Season 4

The fourth season of the all electric FIA Formula E race series kicks off in Hong Kong on the weekend of 2nd December, with the single seater racers taking to the street circuit.

The series started in September 2014 when all the competitors cars were the same, using an electric motor provided by McLaren.

From season two the FIA regulations allowed teams to use an electric motor, inverter, gearbox and cooling system of their choosing from the many emerging manufacturers.

This has introduced a new element to race track, each team’s car emits a unique whirr from their own powertrain setup.
