Branson: “Formula E will produce technological breakthrough”

Infamous entrepreneur and Virgin Racing team owner Sir Richard Branson believes that the introduction of new manufacturers in Formula E next year will push development of electric cars.

On his first visit to a Formula E event, Sir Richard Branson addressed media in Miami at the AmericanAirlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat basketball team.

He said: “We spend a lot of time these days looking to a world that is carbon neutral by 2050 and unless you have sports like Formula E we will never get there. It’s a tremendously exciting aim and Formula E will pioneer technology which will be used on normal road cars. I hope 10 years from now the smell of exhausts from cars will be a thing of the past as much as the smell of cigarettes in restaurants.”
