Formula-E started as a racing game for electric-powered cars in 2014. The series stands apart from other motorsports since it only holds competitions in street circuit locations and exclusively employs electric-powered vehicles. Street circuits in world-famous cities, including Paris, Hong Kong, New York, and Berlin, are used for Formula E races. Audi, BMW, Jaguar, and Porsche are just a few of the brands whose vehicles are used in Formula E.
