The series, featuring cars powered only by lithium batteries, will debut in 2014 and race in the centre of cities.

"Who knows, we might pop up in it," Martin Whitmarsh, boss of the famous British Formula One team McLaren, told Reuters.

"I think it's a good initiative and we'd be delighted in whatever form to be involved with it."

Asked if that means there will be an electric McLaren team on the Formula E grid, Whitmarsh confirmed: "At some point, yes. But that's not at the moment."
