Mahindra Racing becomes first team to sign-up for Formula E Gen3 era


Mahindra Racing, one of Formula E’s founding teams, became the first team and manufacturer to commit to the Gen3 era of Formula E, which starts in 2022. Gen3 marks a new era of performance and efficiency benefits including more powerful, lighter cars, faster charging and cost controls.

The only Indian manufacturer in Formula E, Mahindra Racing has so far claimed four E-Prix victories, 18 podiums, and 690 championship points, making them one of the most consistent and respected outfits on the grid.

The Gen3 car will have significant changes over the current Gen2, including the power increase to up to 350 kW (476 hp) in qualifying and 300 kW (408 hp) in the races (currently 250 kW and 220 kW, respectively), and maximum regenerative braking power between front and rear to 600 kW (currently 250 kW).

The car will have a 4-year cycle and several key components have already been confirmed by the FIA. After a tender process, Spark Racing Technology will continue to produce a spec chassis for all teams, including the front powertrain kit; Williams Advanced Engineering will create the battery system, which will allow for faster charging, and Hankook Tire and Technology will provide all-weather tyres for the series.
