Earlier, the brand had unveiled the Gen2 Formula E car at the Festival of Speed in 2017. Speaking of the M9Electro, the brand claims that it is the fastest, lightest and most powerful electric race car ever built – 60kg lighter than its predecessor and with 100kw more power and has a top speed of 322 kmph.
Moreover, Mahindra Racing states that the Gen3 model is the world’s most-efficient race car, generating 40% of the power it uses during a race through Regenerative Braking.
“It was such a cool experience to be one of the first to drive the new Gen3 Formula E car. The acceleration is impressive, and it feels very quick overall. I’m sure there will be some good racing next season,” says Oliver Rowland, Mahindra Racing driver.
“It’s a proud moment for us to take this car to Goodwood just a week after its first test. This is testament to the hard work, determination and passion of the team to always push to achieve what others see as unachievable. I’m very much looking forward to seeing the car make its debut at an iconic event such as Goodwood, representing the whole of Formula E as the series takes a step to its new era in 2023,” says Dilbagh Gill, Team Principal and CEO of Mahindra Racing team.
