Mahindra Racing and Pininfarina have unveiled three concept designs for a future Formula E racing car.

The powertrain and software will be open to development by individual manufacturers.

Official Statements

Chief Creative Officer of Pininfarina Fabio Filippini, commented: “Formula E is one of the most exciting signs of the changes underway in the automotive world as well as in motor racing. Its success is the proof. Exercising our creativity on these sketches allowed us to imagine the evolution of this formula. A possible contribution of Pininfarina to the future development of a Formula E car would be a highly motivating challenge, fully consistent with our mission of creators and innovators in the automotive field.”

Anand Mahindra, Chairman of the Mahindra Group, said: “Mahindra is a pioneer of EV technology that is always striving to push the boundaries of this exciting new form of mobility. Our participation in the FIA Formula E Championship gives us yet another platform to co-create the future of mobility. While these innovative designs are a creative project at this stage, I would be thrilled to see the M5Electro look like this.”

Mahindra Racing aims to stimulate and curate a conversation on the future form and next generation technology of Formula E, encouraging fans to share their thoughts on these designs on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #FormulaEConcepts
