Jaguar Confirms Racing For Formula E
British multinational manufacturer Jaguar Cars will be making its comeback in the world of motorsports through the FIA's Formula E Championships. The carmaker has confirmed it will be racing on autumn 2016 with Williams Engineering.
Since dropping out of the Formula One races in 2004, Jaguar has confirmed that they will be returning to the motorsport world for the first time for the Formula E championships. This is not a promotional gimmick either as the company will be sending their own squad to line up on Formula E's racing grid on the third season of the series in autumn 2016. Williams Advanced Engineering will be joining Jaguar's team as their official technical partner.
Jaguar Land Rover Group Engineering Director, Nick Rogers, said that the company is proud to announce they will be returning to the racing world with an entry into the ground-breaking Formula E Championships hosted by the FIA. He added that electric vehicles will be playing a significant role in the company's Land Rover future product profile, and that Formula E will be giving the company an opportunity to further develop their technology on vehicle electrification.
In a statement made by Rogers, Jaguar is undoubtedly planning a range of all-electric vehicles. A perfect way to send the company's message across the globe is to join the Formula E races that promotes vehicle electrification.
Jaguar will be joining the ranks of Renault and Audi in the discipline. Currently, Brazil's Lucas Di Grassi led the races after the opening in Malaysia and China.
Jaguar Team Director, James Barclay, said that this is an important decision for the company and that they wanted to get it right. With the company's future plans for electric vehicles, Formula E was an obvious option and the company believes that it will have huge benefits.
The Jaguar announcement is also a big boost for Formula E. The racing championships' chief executive officer, Alejandro Agag, welcomes Jaguar into the sport as the company brings them a brand with rich heritage.
