LONDON: Formula One governing body FIA President Jean Todt confirmed that he is in talks with the European Commission towards the establishment of a championship for electric cars. Todt confirmed he had set up an electric-car commission unit within the FIA, headed by Burkhard Goeschel, a former BMW director. He also said that if things went according to plan, a series – resembling the Formula One style – could start as early as 2013. “We want to have new categories with new energy as soon as possible,” said Todt.
