After joining the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in Season 3, Panasonic Jaguar Racing head into its third season in the series with its new Gen2 Jaguar I-Type III.
With one of the richest histories in motorsport of any manufacturer, dating back to 1948, the British manufacturer revived its motorsport programme to showcase its range of electric cars with its entry into Formula E in 2016.
With over a seasons worth of learnings from Formula E behind it, the British car maker's first electric car - the Jaguar I-Pace SUV - made its first production appearance at the 2017 Mexico City E-Prix, driven by Mitch Evans. The team's efforts in the series help it to test, develop and refine the latest technology, which will filter down to the next generation of Jaguar's all-electric cars.
For its inaugural season in the championship, the team signed Adam Caroll and New Zealander Mitch Evans to the team. After a difficult season, the team finished at the back of the pack, accruing just 27 points over the 12 races. For its second campaign, the team drafted in inaugural ABB FIA Formula E Champion, Nelson Piquet Jr. to partner Mitch Evans, who remained at the team for a second season after his impressive Formula E debut. Finishing the 2017/18 season in sixth place, the team improved its standing in the series but is still yet to win a race.
With no driver changes for the 2018/19 season, both Mitch Evans and Nelson Piquet Jn. get behind the wheel of the Gen2 Jaguar I-Type 3.
