Formula E: the grand prix of the future?

Organisers say electric-car "Formula E" race in Beijing heralds the start of a new era in motor sport.

    Beijing is hosting the first electric Formula E grand prix, a move organisers say will change perceptions about electric cars.

    The cars are more environmentally friendly than their Formula One counterparts - but not everyone is convinced by the technology.

    Al Jazeera's Adrian Brown reports from Beijing.
