The single-seater all-electric race car is now dressed in a striking red and copper colour scheme that echoes Mahindra’s new design direction for electric mobility. The M9Electro will be piloted by an all-new driver lineup, including British racer Oliver Rowland and 2016/17 Formula E Champion Lucas di Grassi. Jehan Daruvala was recently named the team’s reserve driver for Season 9.
