Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short, summarize this topic like I'm... Ten years old or a College student

The Spark-Renault SRT_01E, also known as the SRT01-e (since the 2015–16 season) or the Spark Gen1 (after the introduction of the successive Gen2 chassis), was an electric formula race car designed for the inaugural season of Formula E, in 2014–15. The car was the result of a 10-month collaboration between Spark Racing Technology, McLaren Electronic Systems, Williams Advanced Engineering, Dallara and Renault.[1] The car was used until the end of Formula E's fourth season in 2018, after which it was replaced by the SRT05e.[2]
