The 2016 Mexico City ePrix was a Formula E motor race held on 12 March 2016 at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City, Mexico. It was the fifth championship race of the 2015–16 Formula E season, the single-seater, electrically powered racing car series' second season. It also was the 16th Formula E race overall. The race was initially won by Lucas di Grassi, but later the win was handed to Jérôme d'Ambrosio because di Grassi's car was found to be underweight. This was d'Ambrosio's second Formula E win, after the 2015 Berlin ePrix, where he had also benefited from a disqualification of di Grassi.
The race took place on a modified version of the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit. It was the first Formula E race on a permanent road course. The version used for the ePrix leads through the stadium section and also part of the oval. It is 2.092 kilometers in length and features 18 turns. Track design modification was done by Agustin Delicado Zomeño.
The same 18 drivers as in the previous ePrix participated in this race.
