Formula E is an electric powered single seater championship that started in the year 2014 and was granted World Championship status by the FIA during the seventh season in the year 2020-21. Unlike Formula One, which is hosted in the purpose-built circuits, the Formula E, also known as E-prix, races are held on the street circuits, thereby promoting electric mobility and taking racing to the fans.

With this, Hyderabad will become the only city from India and one among the 13 cities across the globe to be hosting Formula E racing.
