Carrera de Formula E se toma nuevamente el autódromo en México

El Campeonato ABB FIA Fórmula E se realizó el pasado 15 de febrero en la Ciudad de México ante una gran fanaticada de las carreras automovilísticas. El despliegue de vehículos eléctricos de alta velocidad permitió a la audiencia apreciar los avances en la tecnología y duración de la baterías, así como el beneficio ambiental de los mismos.

“Con un total de nueve fabricantes a bordo, como Jaguar, Nissan, BMW, Audi, DS y Mahindra, la Fórmula E sirve como una plataforma competitiva para que los fabricantes mundiales de automóviles y proveedores de movilidad prueben y desarrollen tecnologías relevantes para la carretera. Al competir en las calles, la serie actúa como un catalizador, ayudando a refinar el diseño de vehículos eléctricos y mejorar la experiencia de conducción para los usuarios de automóviles de carretera en todo el mundo”, puntualiza el sitio web de los organizadores del evento.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, UN Environment works to accelerate the transition to electric mobility through MOVEa regional platform to bring governments, municipalities, business and technology centers to the latest technical novelties, and policy and finance solutions on electric mobility.

“The move towards electric mobility is already happening in the region. Let’s speed up this transition to clean the air of our cities, save more lives and avoid the worst effects of climate change”, said UN Environment Regional Director, Leo Heileman.

The host of the 20th American Congress on Mobility and Sports is the FIA ​​Region IV, which represents the FIA ​​in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The FIA is the governing body of world motor sport and the federation of the world’s leading motoring organisations.
