The development in Jaguar Racing’s motorsport operation will aid the company to exchange technology for its passenger segment as well. Thus, enabling the customers with quality products and sustainable technologies. This initiative will also help the British luxury carmaker accomplish its target to achieve zero tailpipe emissions by 2036. And net-zero status across the supply chain, operators and products by 2039.

Jaguar Racing also confirmed that going into the Gen3 era of Formula E, it will continue its long-term partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering.
