Unveiled at the London Design Museum, the Jaguar I-TYPE 3 replaces the I-TYPE 2, with the team hoping the bold new technology and innovation will propel them to the front of the pack. As part of the ‘Race to Innovate’ mission, Panasonic Jaguar Racing has developed the entire powertrain in-house meaning the car is more efficient that the outgoing model.
The biggest improvement to the new Jaguar and all the Formula E cars is the battery technology, as the cars will last the duration of the race without a swap mid-way through the race.
Team Director James Barclay said: “We expect the introduction of the new Generation 2 Formula E race cars and revised sporting regulations to result in a very close season of racing. We believe we are the first team to develop our powertrain entirely in-house, this gives us ultimate control in terms of design and development, and we hope this will put us at a competitive advantage.”
Season five marks the next chapter for Jaguar Racing’s electrification journey, as the I-TYPE 3 will be joined on the grid by the first all-electric production support series – the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY championship.
