Why Formula E racing matters

Formula E racecars hit top speeds of more than 200 miles per hour, but they’re not as fast as F1 cars. The 2024 F1 racing schedule includes more races in more cities than Formula E, and F1 owns the bragging rights as the most elite motorsport. However, Formula E racing, with its all-electric race cars, is the only motorsport (so far) that doesn’t consume fossil fuels. Formula E races are much quieter without the roar of high-torque internal combustion engines.

Gradual changes in F1 Racing Regulations may transform F1 from its current hybrid ICE and electric power units to all-electric motors. However, Formula E was intentionally conceived to demonstrate the potential of sustainable mobility. The Formula E backstory started with a dinner in a Paris restaurant in March 2011 when FIA President Jean Todt and Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag jotted notes for an all-electric race series on a napkin.

2024 Formula E Racing – Season 10

Formula E racing became a thing with Season 1 in 2014 and 2015. The 2024 Formula E racing Season 10 starts January 13 in Mexico City. This season is also the second year of the GEN3 race car, a lighter, smaller, and faster vehicle than the previous two generations.

The 2024 Formula E race calendar pits eleven teams of two drivers each in competition in 16 E-Prix races in ten cities worldwide. All E-Prix races are single-day events, unlike F1’s three-day events with practices,  qualifying events, and the race itself running from Friday to Sunday. Six cities in the Formula E schedule host two races on the same weekend. The remaining four towns host a single race.

GM slashes EV production in half for 2024, still plans to have 1,000,000 electric cars by 2025
GM won't make quite as many EVs as it said (yet)
Cadillac Escalade IQ

Back in October 2023, GM announced plans to produce 400,000 electric vehicles by the middle of 2024 and reach an annual production capacity of a million EVs by the end of 2025. While the Detroit-based manufacturer believes it is still firmly on track to achieve its long-term goal, its plans for this year appear to have been scaled down somewhat.

Instead of having 400,000 more electric cars ready to go by summer, GM will instead aim to have 300,000 of the zero-emission vehicles ready to roll at best. That number could also be as low as 200,000 if production hits the low end of GM’s estimates. The decision to scale back the company’s EV goals was revealed by CEO Mary Barra during GM’s Q4 2023 earnings call.

Apple CarPlay 2.0 is coming this year – but it’s probably going to be a flop – here’s why
Auto Manufacturers might not be happy with Apple
Apple CarPlay 2024

After some delays, Apple CarPlay 2.0 is set to release in 2024. However, uptake might not be particularly good, and that could be all Apple’s fault. The tech giant had previously aimed for a late 2023 launch, though that now seems to have been pushed back to this year. But when it comes to CarPlay 2.0, Apple may have bigger problems than a delayed launch date to grapple with.

With 2.0, users will be able to control their car’s climate, heated seats, and radio. Other features of the new infotainment system include the ability to adjust some yet undisclosed vehicle settings, monitor things like tire pressure, and record data about the vehicle. Overall, the update seems like it is designed to integrate Apple CarPlay with the vehicle itself better and open the door to greater functionality down the line.

Fewer EVs qualify for the $7,500 EV tax credit in 2024
Your EV tax break is going away

In August 2022, President Joe Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law and repealed the previous electric vehicle tax credit that had been in effect since 2010. Unlike the previous guidelines, in which any EV could qualify for a tax credit of up to $7,500 as long as the manufacturer hadn’t sold over 200k EVs, the Inflation Reduction Act only favored electric vehicles made in America with no limit on the manufacturer sales. As a result, major automakers such as Tesla and GM made it back on the list after they were locked out in the old rules for surpassing the 200k sales.

However, electric vehicles that are made in North America are required to meet specific requirements to qualify for the federal EV tax credit. More succinctly, the federal government imposed a price cap limit and a certain percentage on the battery components and critical minerals that are used to manufacture electric vehicles. But that’s not all; the requirements get higher every year, which means fewer EVs will qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit in 2024 than in 2023. Why is it so?
