Fans attending the 2023 Greenko Hyderabad E-Prix will see home favourites Mahindra Racing and Jaguar TCS Racing compete against two iconic motorsport names – NEOM McLaren Formula E and Maserati MSG Racing – who join the Formula E grid for the first time from this season.
As many as 22 drivers from 11 teams including Mahindra Racing, Jaguar TCS Racing, TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team, NEOM McLaren Formula E Team and Maserati MSG Racing will be competing on the 2.83 km street circuit in Hyderabad.
The GEN3 is a huge leap in technological development and innovation with engineers at the FIA and Formula E pushing the boundaries of EV development.
Capable of a 200mph (322kph) top speed, the GEN3 is 53kg lighter than the GEN2 with a smaller chassis optimised for street racing. An additional front powertrain adds 250kW to the 350kW at the rear, more than doubling the regenerative capacity of the previous GEN2 car to 600kW, with more than 40% of the energy used in-race regenerated under braking.
Anil Chalamalasetty, Founder of Greenko Group and Ace Group, said: ’we are delighted to be partnering with an iconic race, India’s first ever Formula E World Championship in association with the Government of Telangana and FIA, with support from the Government of India.
We look forward to witness history in the making, as India drives towards a sustainable future on 11 February 2023 on the streets of Hyderabad’.
