mahindra racing and pininfarina released three concept designs for what could be the future of formula E racing cars. the collaborative project offers fans a glimpse of the creative potential the electric racing series has to offer.


formula E is one of the most exciting signs of the changes underway in the automotive world as well as in motor racing,’ explains chief creative officer of pininfarina fabio filippini. ‘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.’





the release of these renderings follows the recent launch of the FIA formula E tender to design and manufacture the chassis that will be used from season five onwards. to reduce costs, all teams will use the same chassis with the powertrain and software being open to development by the individual manufacturers. 


‘mahindra is a pioneer of EV technology that is always striving to push the boundaries of this exciting new form of mobility,’ continues anand mahindra, chairman of the mahindra group. ‘our participation in the 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.’
