Jaguar Land Rover “Reimagine Racing” con un impegno a lungo termine nella Formula E thumbnail

Jaguar, Jaguar Racing and the new Gen3 will be in the Championship

The commitment of Jaguar Racing in sports competitions will help Jaguar Land Rover in developing new sustainable technologies and setting new standards in terms of quality with its partners, while supporting the rebirth of the Jaguar brand as a fully electrified luxury brand starting in 2025. The Formula E program with the release of the new one Gen3 will be a constituent part of Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy, with which the company is committed to achieving zero tailpipe emissions by 2036 and Net Zero status across the supply chain, operators and products by 2039.

The announcement of this long-term commitment comes ahead of Jaguar Racing’s first home competition in 17 years and the first Formula E race in London, with the Brit Sam Bird in testa to the drivers’ classification. In the 59 Formula E races, the all-electric Jaguar I-TYPEs achieved 4 wins and 12 podiums. In the near future, as the cars compete for more points and more podiums, they will continue to be a real test bed for development of new and avant-garde technologies. Even in the era of Gen3 cars, Jaguar Racing will continue its winning technical collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering.

The Jaguar program on Gen3

The new electric car Gen3 Formula E is expected to debut in the ninth season of the Championship at the end of next year. Lighter, more powerful and more efficient, the Gen3 will represent a new benchmark in terms of performance entirely electrified. In addition, they will also show all the latest developments regarding fast charging, helping to make the races that will be held in some of the most important cities in the world even more exciting. Gen3 cars will expect an increase in power up to 350kW (currently 250kW), while the maximum regenerative braking power will increase from 250kW to 600kW.
