Leonardo DiCaprio will promote electric vehicles through Formula E, becomes Chairman of the championship’s Sustainability Committee
Formula E, which starts its second season on Saturday, announced that Leonardo DiCaprio will promote electric vehicles for the organisation and become Chairman of the championship’s newly created ‘Sustainability Committee’.
The committee will focus on promoting the mass adoption of electric vehicles and the “long term imprint” of the Formula E in the cities where it races.
Motorsports are definitely not for everyone, but if you never gave it a try, maybe the Formula E is the right one to get you started. The second season starts on October 24th in Beijing and it should be an interesting one. They introduced new and more powerful drivetrains, and former Formula 1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve is joining the championship with the Venturi Team.
