Jaguar TCS Racing reveal creative monochrome concept livery for its Gen3 test car – the pinnacle of electric racing

  • Jaguar TCS Racing reveal creative monochrome concept livery for its Gen3 test car – the pinnacle of electric racing
  • Jaguar have committed long-term to the next generation of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship
  • As part of a radical new approach, the team’s compelling test car livery gives a glimpse into the future for Jaguar TCS Racing
  • Global reveal of the Gen3 race car took place this evening in Monaco

Following Formula E’s global reveal of the all-new Gen3 race car, Jaguar TCS Racing have today revealed the creative test car concept livery for the next generation of electric street racing.

A bold and modern design, inspired by abstract art, the test car concept livery signals a dramatic presentation of the new Gen3 FIA Formula E race car for Jaguar TCS Racing as they commit long-term to the next era of Formula E.

The monochromatic scheme and impactful design adds a sophisticated feel to the British manufacturer’s test car, reflecting the wider Jaguar brand’s sustainability-rich reimagination of modern luxury. Jaguar will be reimagined as an all-electric luxury brand from 2025. The test car concept livery will be applied to the Jaguar I-TYPE Gen3 development race car during the important track test phase which starts shortly. The final livery for season nine will follow later in the year.

The lighter, more powerful and efficient Gen3 car will set a new performance benchmark for an all-electric race car. The Gen3 Formula E car will also demonstrate the rapid developments in fast-charging technology for electric vehicles and help deliver more exciting racing in some of the world’s largest cities. The Gen3 car will see power will increase to 350kW (currently 250kW).

The world’s most efficient race car will be capable of producing at least 40% of the energy used within a race from regenerative braking. As the first race car to feature both front and rear powertrains, 250kW regen is added to the front and 350kW regen added at the rear, more than doubling the regenerative capability of the current Formula E model. As a result, the Gen3 race car will be the first formula car not to feature rear hydraulic brakes.

Everyone is excited at Jaguar TCS Racing to reveal our test car concept livery for Gen3 with a fresh, modern design. The abstract livery marks a bold look for the team as we prepare for the next era of Formula E.

Gen3 is an important milestone for the World Championship with the most advanced electric race car we have seen. We expect the new Gen3 race cars to bring even faster, exciting and more dramatic wheel-to-wheel action in new city centre race tracks. The Jaguar TCS Racing team is ready to take on the new challenge and we are looking forward to compete with this new car and technology against the very best.

James Barclay
Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal

From the start of next season, and for the new Gen3 era of Formula E, there will be four Jaguar powered Formula E cars on the grid. Jaguar will supply Envision Racing with its new powertrain technology including its high-voltage electric motor, inverter, transmission, cooling system, casing and suspension.

Jaguar TCS Racing engineers will now focus on the build, design and test of the Jaguar I-TYPE Gen3 challenger ahead of the official team and livery launch and Formula E testing later this year. This will sit alongside the team’s ongoing fight for the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship title with the sixth round taking place at the iconic Monaco street circuit at 15:00 local time on 30 April 2022.

Notes to Editors

ABOUT JAGUAR TCS RACING

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 season seven Jaguar TCS Racing finished runners-up in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship teams’ standings - the most successful so far in Jaguar TCS Racing’s Formula E history.

Formula E is a real-world test bed for Jaguar with its journey to becoming an all-electric luxury brand from 2025. Jaguar TCS Racing will deliver new sustainable technologies and set new benchmarks in quality in support of Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy.

Jaguar TCS Racing goal is to ‘Reimagine Racing’ and together the team will test, develop, learn and collaborate, sharing insights across Jaguar Land Rover which will benefit future road car development. Specifically, learnings and technology transfer from Formula E will help ‘Reimagine” the Jaguar brand coinciding with the company’s commitment to the Gen3 era of Formula E.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Jaguar TCS 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 eleven 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.

The 2021/22 Formula E season is the second season of World Championship status as granted by the FIA – the sport’s governing body. It will be the fourth and final year for the teams to be racing with the futuristic Gen2 race cars.

Teams have two race cars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance of 45 minutes plus 1 lap.

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, Mexico City, Rome, Monaco, New York, London and ending in a double-header race weekend in Seoul.  

New Zealander, Mitch Evans finished season seven fourth in the drivers' championship and Jaguar TCS Racing finished second in the teams' standings - the most successful so far in Jaguar TCS Racing’s Formula E history - with eight podiums, two wins, one pole position and 177 points scored. After his first season with the team, Briton, Sam Bird finished sixth in the championship with two wins, three podiums and a pole position

Race to Innovate

Formula E remains a key priority for Jaguar Land Rover and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the only all-electric world championship, Formula E allows us to test and develop new electric vehicle technologies in a high-performance environment. It continues to be the test-bed for our Race to Innovate mission that will see Race to Road and Road to Race learnings that will help shape our electric future – a future that Jaguar is passionate about, and dedicated to for the benefit of our society, the changing landscape of mobility, sustainability and our customers.
