A race unlike any other in the country is coming to Long Beach. The cars are fast but you can barely hear them because they're all electric.

The 2016 FIA Formula E Long Beach ePRIX is making a return on Saturday with some drivers who have raced in the city before, including one with two Indy car victories.

The race caps off a week that saw electric vehicles in the news. Tesla got worldwide attention for its unveiling of the new Model 3.

If electric cars really are the future, then Formula E is part of that future. Battery powered cars are as quick as almost any car that's ever raced here, but in an eerily quiet way.

Watch car specialist Dave Kunz's full report on the upcoming race in the video above.
