Formula E's electric racer officially unveiled in Las Vegas

Formula E's Spark-Renault SRT_01E electric racer

 The SRT_01E is an all-electric car producing 200kW that's roughly 270 HP with the motor, gearbox and electrics designed by McLaren, batteries and management systems by Williams, tires by Michelin, monocoque chassis by Dallara and all integrated by Renault.

There are many more of these cars around as a new racing series similar to Formula 1 will be starting this year in September. The series will be managed by the FIA and is designed to increase development in electric powered cars.
