Tuesday 18 February 2020, Whitley, United Kingdom:

Formula E is constantly evolving and the introduction of the Gen2 EVO shows the collective ambition to keep pushing the boundaries of electric street racing. The introduction of this upgrade coincides with World Championship status for Formula E which will take the sport to the next level. The Gen2 EVO looks striking but the real work goes on under the bodywork. Panasonic Jaguar Racing is already working on our powertrain for next season.

The new Gen2 EVO will offer approximately 10 – 15% more downforce and up to 10% less drag, so we will be seeing racecars which are faster in a straight line and around corners. From a driver’s perspective with the wheel arch body work removed, it will allow them to see apexes more clearly and the tyres rotating – these small changes should assist drivers during races too.

Notes to Editors


Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In 2019 the team won the Rome E-Prix – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.

Formula E is a real world test bed for Jaguar to make fearless progress in the future of electrification.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Panasonic Jaguar Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter and rear suspension. To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.

This is the second year teams will be racing with the futuristic Generation 2 racecars. Teams have two racecars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance.

Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Diriyah, Hong Kong, Sanya, Rome, Paris, New York and ending in a double-header race weekend in London.
