Pininfarina and Mahindra Racing have today unveiled concept designs for a future Formula E racing car.
The images are said to be the product of a collaborative styling project that offers fans a glimpse of the potential form of Formula E in the future.
The release of the 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.
“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,” said Mahindra boss, Anand Mahindra.
Pininfarina’s chief creative officer, Fabio Filippini, added: “Exercising our creativity on these sketches allowed us to imagine the evolution of this formula.”
Italian design house Pininfarina joined the Mahindra Group back in December 2015, signing an investment agreement with Tech Mahindra.
