Jaguar TCS Racing has revealed its 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship contender that’s gonna make its race debut in Mexico City on 14 January 2023 alongside the Porsche 99X Electric Gen3 and others. The all-electric Jaguar I-Type 6 will be piloted by Mitch Evans (NZ) and Sam Bird (UK).
The Jaguar I-Type 6 doesn’t go bonkers with its livery but takes an asymmetrical approach with satin white over the carbon panels. The white is outlined with gold for an extra sophisticated look.
Since the Jaguar I-Type 6 has to comply with Formula E Gen3 regulations, the specifications are gonna be the same as the other Gen3 cars. It has got two electric motors: a 250 kW (340 metric hp) at the front and a 350 kW (476 metric hp) at the rear, but the front motor is employed only for regeneration. The total regen capability is now 600 kW—up from Gen2’s 250 kW. The regen is so strong that there are no conventional rear brakes. The I-Type 6 weighs 826 kg (1,821 lbs), which is 74 kg (163 lbs) less than the I-Type 5.
Jaguar claims a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 2.8 seconds while the top speed is capped at 320 km/h (199 mph).
