The new Jaguar Formula E race car, which will compete in the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, is 50kg lighter and 134bhp more powerful than its predecessor.
The much-anticipated Jaguar I-TYPE 6 Gen3 racer, which is slated to compete in the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, has been unveiled by Jaguar TCS Racing. Both front and rear powertrains are available in the Jaguar I-TYPE 6, with the front receiving a 335bhp regen and the rear sporting a 469bhp regen. This will do away with the requirement for traditional rear brakes and increase regenerative capabilities over the Gen2 model.
Boasting a top speed of 321km/h, the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 features a striking colour scheme that includes Carbon Black, Satin White, and Gold accents. Drivers Mitch Evans and Sam Bird, who will be coming together for the firm for a third consecutive season, will be able to choose between two different cars thanks to the asymmetrical design of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 livery.
The development of the I-TYPE 6 will impact Jaguar Land Rover's whole lineup and enable them to achieve their goal of developing exclusively EVs by 2025, as is the case with all motorsports-related ventures. Additionally, this will be the first year that the manufacturer will also provide its powertrains to Envision Racing, another Formula E team.
The inaugural race of the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place in Mexico on January 14, 2023. Moreover, 2023 will also mark the debut of Formula E in India. On February 11, Hyderabad will host the fourth race of the year. Jaguar TCS Racing scored the most points in their Formula E history during the latest season. Sam Birds and Mitch Evans, their drivers, both plan to return in 2023. Mitch finished second in the Drivers Championship during Season 8 of Formula E with a score of 183 points.
