Formula E and the Jaguar I-PACE: A Match Made in Heaven

I-PACE Formula E

In 2016, Jaguar was the first premium car manufacturer to join Formula E. Now we’ve made history again with the world’s first all-electric production-based international race series. As the main support series to the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Championship reinforced our commitment to electric vehicles. In this support series for Formula E, the Jaguar I-PACE appeared in twenty different variants, all specified for the racetrack, and expert drivers competed for the win. The eTROPHY Championship series ended in May of 2020, but the energy which animated these Jaguar race cars lives on.

 

The first generation of electric road vehicles from Jaguar drew inspiration from our racing team activities and our long history of building superior Jaguar racing cars. Taking what we learn on the track and adapting those technologies to deliver electrifying performance on the road has been our promise from the start. With our entry into the ABB FIA Formula E Championship and our creation of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Championship, we’ve brought that promise to life.

When we announced the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Championship, drivers from all over the Greenwich and New Canaan areas took notice. It shouldn’t be hard to see why! This official support series for Formula E saw 20 production-based Jaguar I‑PACE SV race cars with identical specifications, all going head to head for bragging rights and a $500,000 prize pool. With nothing but driver skill and team tactics standing between the champion and the rest of the pack, enthusiasts immediately took notice. Held over 10 races and in some of the world’s most celebrated cities, the Jaguar I‑PACE eTROPHY Championship will go down as one of the most exciting chapters in our ongoing Race to Innovate.

 

Formula E and the Jaguar I-PACE: The Start of Something Special

The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Championship was inaugurated in 2018. By 2019, the Jaguar I-PACE had been honored numerous times as one of the most exciting electric vehicles ever made! Indeed, the Jaguar I-PACE was named World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, and World Green Car, and these were just a few of its striking awards and accolades. The production model had been built on the long legacy of Jaguar racing cars, and it immediately proved that it could go head-to-head with rivals like the Tesla Model X.

Today, the I-PACE offers invigorating performance in a stylish package. If you watched the Formula E and Jaguar I-PACE collaboration with interest, you’ll love what it can do on the roads near Stamford and Norwalk:

  • The I-PACE offers a total range of up to 234 miles and can gain 22 miles of charge per hour with a Level 2 at-home charging station. Level 3 public charging is even faster.
  • EPA estimates rate the Jaguar I-PACE at 80 MPGe in the city and 72 MPGe on the highway.
  • With an electric powertrain that delivers up to 394 hp and 512 lb-ft of torque, you’ll zip from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds.
