All-electric racing car runs on Arctic ice cap

The FIA Formula E Championship, the world’s first fully-electric racing series, has once again broken new ground by running its car on the Arctic ice cap.

With the earth experiencing the warmest year on record, the amount of sea ice breaking away from the Arctic has reached historic new levels. To raise awareness of this crucial and pressing issue, Formula E joined forces with Julius Baer, Visa, DHL, Schaeffler, The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and Mumm Champagne House to bring this spectacular event to life. The zero-emission racer was driven on the ice cap by adventurous race-winning Formula E driver, Lucas di Grassi.
