Jaguar TCS Racing GEN4 announcement

This is great news for Jaguar TCS Racing and for Jaguar. As a team we recently celebrated our 100th race in Formula E and, with Jaguar being reimagined as a pure-electric brand from 2025, the timing couldn’t be better. Our commitment to the next, GEN4 era of Formula E is clear demonstration of the JLR Board’s confidence in the value of competition at the highest level, our race to innovate ethos and, importantly, how this aligns perfectly with our wider Reimagine business strategy.

I am extremely proud of what the team has achieved to date in what is the pinnacle of electric racing, and we are all very excited for the future. From its beginnings as a start-up ten years ago, FIA Formula E has grown into a true World Championship that is not only producing incredibly exciting and professional sport of the highest calibre, but is also pioneering zero emission battery electric vehicle technologies. Jaguar TCS Racing will continue to drive the rapid development of EV technology on the track, for the benefit of our future customers on the road.

We are thrilled that Jaguar TCS Racing are committing to the GEN4 era of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. Jaguar's dedication to innovation and sustainability perfectly aligns with our mission to redefine the future of racing. As we look forward to the exciting advancements that the GEN4 era promises, Jaguar’s continued partnership underscores the significant impact that Formula E has had on the development of electric vehicle technology, and on setting the pace for greener, more exhilarating motorsport.

Jeff Dodds
CEO, Formula E

We’re delighted to confirm Jaguar as our second committed manufacturer for Formula E’s GEN4 era. Jaguar has been a mainstay of the championship since Season 3 and a consistent title contender in recent campaigns, with the brand’s racing activities and future electric road car range underscoring its firm focus on sustainable solutions. As we simultaneously present the GEN3 Evo single-seater which will race in Seasons 11 and 12 before GEN4 takes over for Season 13, we do so with confidence that the roadmap we are following is in line with manufacturers’ expectations when it comes to race-to-road relevance. That bodes well for a successful future for Formula E.

FIA President

Two key examples of future-EV technology proven by Jaguar TCS Racing on the track in the all-electric Jaguar I-TYPE 6 are the use of Silicon Carbide and a circulatory-first transmission fluid.

Silicon Carbide – a semi-conductor material – was first used by Jaguar TCS Racing in 2017 through Wolfspeed, who later became a technical partner. Similarly, Jaguar has pioneered a more circular process with Castrol – taking used transmission fluid and re-refining it for competition use in the Jaguar I-TYPE 6. Both Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide and Castrol ON transmission fluid will be used in the next generation of Jaguar road-going EVs.

The rapid pace of advancement from GEN1 to GEN3 means fans can expect another seismic shift in electric racing technology with the move to GEN4. While the complete technical details for the GEN4 era of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship are still under development the cars will feature 600kW power and 700kW regenerative braking – a significant increase on the GEN3 era figures of 350kW and 600kW respectively.

Notes to Editors

Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first luxury manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series.    

In the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Jaguar TCS Racing finished runners-up with 292 points – the team’s biggest points haul in Formula E.   

Mitch Evans finished third in the 2023 Drivers’ World Championship with 197 points, his biggest points haul in Formula E, and continues to compete for the team in 2024. Nick Cassidy joins the team’s driver line-up for the 2024 season of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.  

The 2023 season saw all teams race with the Gen3 car, the world’s first net zero race car. Jaguar TCS Racing continues to race with the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 in 2024.  

Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The 2024 championship will take place on existing tracks and temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Mexico City, Diriyah and Monaco, with new locations including Tokyo and Shanghai. The season finale will play out across a double-header race weekend in London.    

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Jaguar TCS Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter, and rear suspension. Jaguar, via its long-term Formula E technical partner Fortescue WAE, will supply Envision Racing with its powertrain for the Gen3 era.    

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 efficient and lightweight electric vehicle powertrains which will improve the performance and range of future JLR electric vehicles.    

Formula E remains a key priority for JLR and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the premier all-electric world championship, Formula E allows the team to test and develop new electric vehicle technologies in a high-performance environment. It continues to be the test bed for the team’s Race to Innovate mission that will see Race to Road and Road to Race learnings that will help shape the 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 clients.    

Through our Race to Inspire mission, Jaguar TCS Racing are committed to inspiring the future generation by using the race programme to create a positive impact on our planet and the communities in which we race. From competing in the world’s first net carbon race car to supporting and training the next generation of engineers and motorsport professionals.
