Jaguar TCS Race Car Reveal

Jaguar TCS Racing has revealed a creative monochrome concept livery for its Formula E Gen3 test car.

The unveiling comes as Jaguar commits long-term to the next generation of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

Jaguar says the team’s compelling new test car livery gives a glimpse into the future for Jaguar TCS Racing.

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

Inspired by abstract art, Jaguar says the test car concept livery signals a dramatic presentation of the new Gen3 FIA Formula E race car for Jaguar TCS Racing as the manufacturer commits for the long-term to the next era of Formula E.

Jaguar, which will be reimagined as an all-electric luxury brand from 2025, says the race car’s monochromatic scheme adds a sophisticated feel to the test car, reflecting the wider Jaguar brand’s sustainability-rich reimagination of modern luxury. 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 also see power increase to 350kW (from its current 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.

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 says the 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.
