Jaguar boost for Gen3 Formula E

28 July 2021

JAGUAR Land Rover has pledged Jaguar Racing’s long-term future to the Gen3 era of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship – set to commence in the 2022/23 season.

Jaguar Racing’s race-winning motorsport operation will help Jaguar Land Rover develop new sustainable technologies and support Jaguar’s renaissance as an all-electric luxury brand from 2025.

The Formula E programme will contribute to Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy – a commitment to achieve zero tailpipe emissions by 2036, and net zero status across supply chain, operators, and products by 2039.

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 new technologies.

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

“The Gen3 era of Formula E is an exciting new chapter for the all-electric World Championship,” commented Thierry Bolloré, Chief Executive Officer of Jaguar Land Rover. “It is already proving to be the perfect environment to design, collaborate, test and develop new sustainable technologies at pace.

“Jaguar Racing will not only play a role in the renaissance of Jaguar as a pure-electric luxury brand, but across the entire electrified Jaguar Land Rover ecosystem, helping to deliver our sustainable future and our digital transformation.”

He added: “Ahead of another important technical milestone for the FIA Formula E World Championship, I salute Jaguar Racing as a premium manufacturer to commit to the next era of the discipline,” said FIA President Jean Todt. “It is positive to see such a team continue with us on a shared mission to develop electric vehicle technology and promote sustainable mobility.”
