Mahindra Racing has teamed up with Italian design and engineering firm Pininfarina to create three concept designs for a future Formula E car.
The stunning designs offer a glimpse of the potential future of the sport, with the FIA having launched the tender to design and manufacture chassis from season five onwards.
Although the powertrain and software will be open to development, the chassis used in the series will continue to be the same for every team.
Mahindra said they created the designs to stimulate debate on the future form of the sport, and are encouraging fans to share their thoughts online.
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 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.”
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.”
