Yes and no. Yes, it would defeat the purpose of an endurance event to simply let one car after another assume the same track position. And no, 5 would not be enough. Teslas and other electrics are drag racers not endurance racers. That won't change until they can swap a battery in 20 seconds or less.

Keep an eye on Formula E for the latest in electric car racing tech. Rules limited but definitely expanding the envelope.
