Mahindra Racing & Pininfarina (which also belongs to the Mahindra Group) presented its Formula E design concept.  And it looks pretty sweet, we have to say.

The Indian manufacturer is engaged in the Formula E racing series with its own team, and seems to be seriously preparing for the next generation of electric car racing.

“Mahindra Racing and Pininfarina today released three concept designs for a future Formula E racing car. These images are the product of a collaborative and creative project that offers fans a glimpse of the potential form of Formula E in the future.

The release of these images 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.”

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. 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”.

    Open wheel racing should be OPEN WHEEL.

    Putting all kinds of whoohaas and doodads looks ridiculous. If you want that, just make it a cool closed cockpit car (ala Le Mans spec).

    Just look at the ridiculous state of Indy Car racing with their “bumpers” around the wheels so that the drivers can pretend they’re in NASCAR instead of trying to be Formula 1.
