Renesas enters Formula E racing

Renesas has become the official technology partner of the Mahindra Racing team in the Formula E Championship, the world’s first all-electric racing series. Moreover, in line with Mahindra’s ‘race to road’ story of the electric vehicle development that the Formula E platform delivers, both parties will work together across a number of programmes inclusive of ‘proof-of-concept’ systems for both racing and road cars. Through this strategic vision, both organizations will leverage their mutual strengths to expand the development and manufacturing of electric vehicles, powertrain, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, and other systems.

As a leading global automotive semiconductor supplier, Renesas includes EVs as one of their core automotive businesses and develops comprehensive solutions for them around its Renesas autonomy Platform introduced earlier this year. Renesas autonomy is an open, innovative and trusted platform which aims to accelerate the development of self-driving electric and connected vehicles for consumer adoption. It includes core technologies that are essential in the development of EVs, including motor and inverter control systems and battery management.

Dr. Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra Limited and Chairman of Mahindra Racing UK says: “We are delighted to welcome Renesas as a key technical partner of the Mahindra Racing Formula E team as we start the fourth season of racing. Formula E is helping to grow Mahindra’s EV technology and expertise, and this new strategic partnership with Renesas will only help to accelerate our learning curve.
