Formula E starts season 5 in Saudi Arabia with a faster electric race car

Here at Ars, we've been fans of the all-electric racing series from day one.

We were at the first-ever US race in Miami in 2015, and that same year two of the cars even carried our logo at the season finale in London.

Since then, we've been regulars at the NYC ePrix, a two-day doubleheader that marks the conclusion of the championship.

Electric cars racing on temporary street circuits in city centers represented quite a departure from your average racing series, and it's fair to say that Formula E has had to deal with a lot of skeptics.

But we like people who try new things, and, over the course of the past four years, the sport has done a lot to win many naysayers over.

I am referring to the new battery pack, a 54kWh unit built by McLaren Applied Technologies, with cells developed by Lucid Motors.
