Jaguar Racing is the latest team to officially confirm its commitment to Formula E’s Gen3 rules, which will be enforced in 2022.
Another Formula E outfit has revealed its plans regarding Formula E’s Gen3 regulations. It has been announced that Jaguar Racing will stay in the sport during the new era of the championship. This comes after Jaguar Land Rover has signed up as the Gen3 manufacturer.
Jaguar Land Rover CEO Thierry Bolore commented on the announcement: “The Gen3 era of Formula E is an exciting new chapter for the all-electric World Championship. 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.”
Formula E CEO Jamie Reigle added: “Jaguar are a key player in the future of luxury electric vehicles. It’s a testament to the shared purpose that one of our earliest supporters, Jaguar Racing, are committing to Gen3 in anticipation of the 2022/23 season. Gen3 brings with it an unparalleled opportunity for a premium manufacturer like Jaguar to showcase innovation from a sporting perspective on the track, technological advancement on our roads, and reach a global audience with spectacular city center racing from around the world. We’re thrilled to have Jaguar Racing joining us on that journey.”
FIA president Jean Todt also shared his thoughts: “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. The Gen3 race car will indeed further establish the principles that have made the championship successful. It is positive to see such a team continue with us on a shared mission to develop electric vehicle technology and promote sustainable mobility.”
Jaguar Racing joins Mahindra Racing, DS Techeetah, Porsche, Nissan e.dams, and NIO 333 as the teams that will race in the Gen3 era.
