The new Gen 3 model of the Mahindra Racing is claimed to be the world’s most efficient race car, generating 40 per cent of the power it uses during a race through regenerative braking.
Speaking about the M9Electroc’s debut, Mahindra Racing driver – Oliver Rowland said, “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.”

This is a 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.”
