Mahindra Has Named Its Formula E Car Electro McElectroFace

Formula E team Mahindra racing held a fan vote to name its 2018 cars and, well, of course this happened

The team’s Season 5 challenger is officially called the Mahindra M5Electro but ahead of the first race of the season in Saudi Arabia this weekend, the team held a vote to give names to the individual cars.

Allowing public votes is always going to be a risky business - after all, Sergey Sirotkin is now officially the best driver of 2018 - and Mahindra’s poll was no exception. The No.64 car driven by Jerome d’Ambrosio has been named ‘Falcon’…

That’s a pretty cool name, but the No.94 car (driven by Felix Rosenqvist this weekend, Pascal Wehrlein for the rest of the season) has gone down a different, more hilarious route…

Yup, Electro McElectroFace, in honour of the famous Boaty McBoatface.

However, unlike Boaty McBoatface, Mahindra has actually honoured its vote and the name will stick with the car throughout Season 5. Props to the team for actually going with it!
