Jaguar Commits To All-Electric Formula E Series

Jaguar Land Rover has announced that they remain committed to the FIA Formula E World Championship into the 2022/23 season through the Jaguar Racing Team.

According to the British carmaker, Jaguar Racing’s motorsport operation will help Jaguar Land Rover develop new sustainable technologies, and set new benchmarks in quality with its partners, and support Jaguar’s ambition to become an all-electric luxury brand from 2025.

Jaguar Racing will continue its successful long-term technical partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering into the Gen3 era of Formula E.

FIA Formula E’s new Gen3 electric race car is due to debut in Season 9 at the end of next year. The lighter, more powerful, and efficient Gen3 car will set a new performance benchmark for an all-electric race car.

The Gen3 Formula E car will also demonstrate the rapid developments in fast-charging technology for electric vehicles and help deliver more exciting racing in some of the world’s largest cities. The Gen3 car will see power will increase to 350 kW (475 horsepower) from the current 340 horsepower (250 kW), and maximum regenerative braking power will increase from 340 horsepower (250 kW) to 815 horsepower (600 kW).

Jaguar’s all-electric I-TYPE race cars have achieved four victories and 12 podiums in its 59 Formula E races and will continue to be a real-world test bed for developing world-leading technologies while pushing for points, podiums and wins on track. Driver Sam Bird is currently leading the drivers’ championship.
