has launched its new Gen2 Formula E car with a special event held at London’s Design Museum, the second team to do so after BMW Andretti revealed its new car last week.

Sporting a similar livery to that of its predecessor, the Jaguar I-TYPE3 is a completely brand new car which the team say features over 800 upgraded parts and a brand new powertrain designed and built in house for the first time.

Jaguar team principal James Barclay says the team expects the introduction of the new new Gen2 car coupled with Formula E’s new sporting regulations to produce “a very close season of racing”.

“The technology is moving at an incredibly fast rate, and the new Gen2 car will be an important test bed to help develop and drive performance of our future battery electric vehicles,” he added.

Jaguar’s third season in Formula E will once again see the team compete with a driver lineup featuring and , with Chinese driver Ho-Pin Tung performing test and reserve driver duties.

Evans, who scored the team’s first podium and pole position last season, says the team has “higher expectations” for season five and that the aim is “to be fighting at the front of the grid in every race.”

Last season, Jaguar finished sixth in the teams’ championship, with a best result of third coming at the second race in Hong Kong. The team was one of the most improved on the grid in 2017-18, having finished bottom of the teams’ championship in its debut season.

Jaguar also confirmed at the event that the new Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy series will kick off at the opening round of the season in Riyadh on December 15th.

The series, which will feature 20 identical race-spec Jaguar I-PACE cars, will act as the official support series to the ABB Formula E championship at 10 of the 13 rounds.
