      richard branson.jpg"You never know, you may find Virgin competing with the Tesla in the car business as we do in the space business", Branson told Bloomberg TV.


      “We have teams of people working on electric cars,” Branson told Bloomberg TV in Miami where his Virgin Racing team competed in the all-electric Formula E race that involves battery-powered cars.


      Sir Richard Branson thinks competition will fuel innovation. That's why he's sponsoring a Virgin Racing team in Formula E, the world's first electric motor sports championship. At the latest Formula E race in Miami, Branson told Bloomberg's Olivia Sterns how Formula E fits into his plans for renewable energy development and adoption.
