Mercedes-Benz Unveils First All-Electric Racecar

Mercedes-Benz has revealed its first all-electric racecar, EQ Silver Arrow 01, on the eve of the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

The German automaker's new innovation will compete in EV racing series Formula E starting the end of 2019.

Two years ago, Mercedes-Benz announced it was joining Formula E, an all-electric alternative to Formule One and other gas-powered motorsports.

“Formula E is going to be a completely new playing field for us,” Toto Wolff, the head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, said in a statement.

“But we are looking forward to the challenge of demonstrating the performance of our intelligent battery-electric drives in motorsport and of giving a positive boost to the EQ brand,” he added.
