M-Sport unveil Puma Hybrid Rally1

Ahead of a history-making season for the World Rally Championship with the introduction of plug-in hybrid Rally1 cars at the top level of the sport, M-Sport Ford World Rally Team has unveiled its all-new Ford Puma Hybrid and its electric-inspired livery at a WRC launch event in Salzburg - see the gallery image herein and the Ford Puma showing off an electrifying new look that encapsulates the Red Bull inspired energy of the team as it heads into the first round in Monte Carlo next week.

At the beginning of this new hybrid era for the World Rally Championship, which will also see Rally1 cars make the switch to sustainable fuels, M-Sport also celebrates 25 years of competing with Ford in the championship. During this period the iconic pairing have claimed a total of seven world titles, 61 overall victories and 239 podiums.

M-Sport's striking new livery, which combines vibrant shades of purple with the team's traditional blue palette, marks the change to hybrid with glowing bolts of colour over the body of the car. As the World Rally Championship enters this radical period of change and M-Sport celebrates its landmark anniversary, the team is taking the opportunity to signify the importance of the direction the sport is taking in the 2022 season.
