Mercedes has presented a first look at its Formula E car in a ‘teaser livery’ ahead of its entry into the 2019-20 championship later this year.
Mercedes have revealed a mock-up Formula E car, featuring their livery, and put it on display at the International Motor Show in Geneva between March 7th and 17th.
Entering the series for Season 6 later this year, Mercedes will have a works team in both Formula 1 & Formula E.
Speaking about the work going on behind the scenes as they gear up to enter FE, head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff said: “Formula E is going to be a completely new playing field for us.”
“But we are looking forward to the challenge of demonstrating the performance of our intelligent battery-electric drives in motorsport and of giving a positive boost to the EQ brand.”
The chief design officer for Daimler AG, Gorden Wagener, gave some insight into the thinking behind the ‘teaser livery’.
“The Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow 01 teaser car gives a foretaste of the first all-electric Silver Arrow from Mercedes-Benz,” he said.
“Blue accents and the subtle contrast between matt and gloss in conjunction with the star pattern at the rear of the vehicle stage the progressive luxury in electric motorsport.”
