In an ironic move, cars introduced to the Real Racing 3 app share a power source similar to that maintained in electronic devices running the popular game. As the holiday season started, the developers behind Real Racing 3 announced access to updated content made possible through a new partnership in the motorsport world. For the first time on the app, the all-electric race vehicles belonging to the FIA Formula E championship can now be wheeled by an accelerometer and touchscreen pad.

The addition of FIA Formula E comprises of three race vehicles as well as the introduction of a new Hong Kong street course. Digital representations of the 2016/2017 Formula E championship batter-powered race cars are based on the SRT_01E vehicle created by a collaborative effort of companies including Spark Racing Technology, Renault and Dallara. For Real Racing 3, cars included is the Renault e.dams team's Z.E.16, NextEV NIO's TCR Formula 002 and as well as ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport's FE02.

Started on December 23rd, the Renault Z.E. 16 became the first vehicle made accessible to Real Racing 3 users as part of the 'High Voltage' challenge. A 9-day challenge consisting of a multitude of driving tasks with the race car, winning the competition will reward you the Renault Z.E. 16 Formula E machine for free.

However, transitioning through levels of the High Voltage challenge, players will ultimately be faced with making upgrades to the car with in-game currency. As is the case with other challenges involving new cars on Real Racing 3, you will require a considerable amount of in-game credits to be able to reach the opportunity to win the Formula E car. From my experience, getting past the 3rd day of competition in the High Voltage challenge appears to be a pricey ordeal. Upgrades to the tires & wheels with in-game currency is R$ 66,500 at the first level while an engine enhancement costs R$ 85,000.

Following the conclusion of the High Voltage event, future challenges in Real Racing 3 will provide the opportunity to win the NextEV NIO and ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport race cars. All three Formula E cars will also be purchasable in-game through the career competition with two events available to run at the Master level section. The Renault Z.E. 16 will be the first car offered for purchase on January 2nd.

Launched in 2013, the Real Racing 3 app has risen to become party to 200 million downloads up to mobile devices. A racing game consisting of competitions based around what is now 171 vehicles, the EA (Electronic Arts) backed motorsports experience features a diverse range of cars. Conventional, affordable sports cars such as a Nissan 350Z is available near the entry-level of the game while increasingly more exotic vehicles will be found deeper into a player's progression (or bank account if willing to make some very deep indulgences into buying in-app currency with real money). Cars such as the Laferrari and McLaren F1 represent exotic choices in the game in addition to concept or race machines. Adding the GTE-Pro vehicles such as the Ford GT and Chevrolet Corvette C7.R earlier this year, Devoting an entire section to NASCAR stock car racing, offering access to LMP1 category sports cars such as the Audi R18 e-tron quattro as well as classic racers such as the Ferrari 375 F1 car,
