The release of these images follows the recent launch of the FIA tender to design and manufacture the chassis that will be used from season five onwards.

Decreased price

To reduce costs, all teams will use the same chassis with the powertrain and software being open to development by individual manufacturers.

Stimulating social network activity

Mahindra Racing intends 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.

A few words from big wigs

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.”

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.”

Some interesting information regarding Pininfarina

Pininfarina is one of the most well-known and well-respected Italian Design Houses.

It’s no brainer and everyone knows it.

However, we do know something that might impress you –it belongs to the Mahindra Group.

Turns out, Pininfarina joined the Mahindra Group in December 2015, signing an investment agreement with Tech Mahindra. With legendary high-end design credentials across many sectors, it is perhaps Pininfarina’s era-defining automotive designs which most racing fans will associate with the iconic Italian design house. The H2 Speed hydrogen car concept was most recently awarded Best Concept at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
