Future consumer energy needs, fact, fiction or a prediction? By Michael Josefsen, Founder of The FRED Project and FRED Energy In many developed nations, the last decade has seen a gradual albeit limited adoption of renewable energy systems by consumers, mostly aided by government initiatives and subsidies. There has it seems, been little urgency in […]

When it first debuted in 2014, skeptics wondered whether Formula E would last beyond its first season. An all-electric racing series, the contrarian line went, could never draw meaningful audience or sponsor support when the screaming, gas-powered motors of Formula One or NASCAR were so clearly beloved. Five years later, those skeptics have been proven wrong. Formula E just completed its fifth season with last weekend’s races in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Porsche and Mercedes are entering the series, and the public is paying more attention, too: Formula E is now covered extensively by news outlets from CNN to Motorsport.com to U.K. tabloid The Sun. But most importantly, Formula E is having a direct impact on the electric vehicles you might see on the street. That was always the overriding purpose of the racing series, according to Sylvain Filippi, managing director and CTO of Formula E team Envision Virgin Racing. “The mission behind Formula E is to do two things,” he said at Fortune’s Brainstorm Tech conference in Aspen, Colo. “First, to really accelerate the R&D behind electric cars—to really make the range better, the power better, the efficiency better. And second, it’s about marketing and communication—there’s no point developing all this amazing tech if nobody knows about it.” But word is certainly getting around. According to Filippi, more than 400 million people watch the Formula E championship each year, surely drawn in part by one visceral appeal that gas-guzzlers can’t match. And, because of their lack of emissions, Formula E races can be held in picturesque city centers, from Paris to Hong Kong to Mexico City. Filippi, who has been working on electric cars since 2007, says the endurance of Formula E comes down to a mix of foresight and conviction. “People like me were absolutely, 100% convinced this would be a runaway success, because it’s all about surfing the perfect wave. We can have different views on where mobility is heading, but for sure it’s going to be electric, and for sure it’s going to become autonomous, and all these things are going to happen because they make sense.” “So motorsport, as an entertainment platform, but also as an R&D testbed for these technologies, has to go that way,” said Filippi. “It makes sense.” The R&D dynamic of Formula E follows in the tracks of its Formula 1 model. To win the Formula E series, teams are constantly pushing to get more speed and distance out of their motors and batteries. Those innovations can make it into street-legal cars relatively quickly, according to Filippi. For example, Formula E has pushed to increase the power throughput of its vehicles to 900 volts, as much as three times as high as current electric cars on the street. That upgrade proved viable and safe on the track, and now it’s heading to the highway. “The next generation of electric cars coming from Porsche and Audi [and others], will run at 800 or 900 volts, too.” That means both faster charging and more efficient use of power. If you want to see the next wave of innovation from Formula E’s teams, you won’t have to wait long: Season 6 kicks off in November, with a race in Saudi Arabia.

Honda is releasing its first electric car that was built to be electric from the ground up this year, but it is only for the European market. Now the Japanese automaker says that it is coming to the US with electric cars through a new platform that allows bigger vehicles. But it may take some time. Honda is already selling the Clarity EV in the US, but it’s an unpopular compliance car. We have been reporting on the launch of the Honda E in Europe, which is a more appealing all-electric city car, but the automaker doesn’t plan to release in the US — at least for now. However, Honda still plans to bring more all-electric vehicles to the US. Those vehicles should be bigger than what Honda is planning for electric vehicles in Europe. Tetsuya Hasebe, general manager and chief engineer of Honda’s electric vehicle development division, said (via Auto News): It has a different aim from the Honda E. This one aims for intercity, long-distance travel. It would mean a longer range than the Honda E. Honda recently revealed its 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, along with Honda e’s 50:50 weight distribution. The company says the car will be capable of charging to 80% in 30 minutes, and it’ll have a 200 km (125 mile) range. It is meant as a city car. For the US, the Japanese automaker is planning a modular platform that will enable bigger battery packs, longer range, and bigger vehicles. Ayumu Matsuo, Honda’s managing officer in charge of power unit development, said: This new architecture is designed to achieve smooth driving and highly efficient packaging. We believe it will meet the needs of customers who like our C-segment and D-segment models. They are planning for a skateboard-like platform design, which has become the standard in the industry, and it will support both RWD and AWD variants as well as being battery cell agnostic. The ability to use different battery cells from different suppliers will enable Honda to manufacture the new electric vehicles at factories around the world using different battery suppliers. Honda aims to bring the new electric vehicle platform to production before 2025. Electrek’s Take Honestly, this sounds like something most other electric automakers are already doing, and Honda seems late to the game with a “before 2025” timeline. However, if they are planning for significant production volumes and achieve economy of scale by leveraging the modular platform to produce several different models, they could still have a change by beating the competition on price, as they did in the past. I think Honda is currently far behind in the transition to electric vehicles, but I wouldn’t count them out just yet.
