The Jaguar I-PACE electric SUV Goes Full Race-Mode at Frankfurt
|   Thursday, October 19, 2017
At every major automotive saloon, Jaguar brings the pre-production version of the Jaguar I-PACE electric SUV, each time bringing in another color. In Frankfurt, Jaguar's surprise, besides such a pre-production version painted in white, was that a racing version was also revealed!

Named Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy, the racing version will take part in a Formula E championship. A total of 20 copies of the same type will compete on improvised tracks on the streets of Hong Kong, Paris, Rome, New York and Sao Paulo starting in 2018! With this series Jaguar wants to promote electric vehicles and to refine their technology.


These racing cars will be created by the SVO specialists on the basis of the I-PACE electric SUV, which will be launched in the market by the end of 2018.
This answers the dillema of how you can create a strong interest around a Jaguar electric SUV: transform it into a race car!

The I-Pace eTrophy will be the official support race for the Formula E, from the start of season five, which will begin in late 2018. Therefore, it will compete in 10 city centers around the world.

As the globe's first international race with production electric cars, details for the eTrophy race car as well as the series itself are rather scarce. Gerd Mauser, Jaguar Racing's Chairman,stated that “With the launch of the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy we have strengthened our commitment to battery electric vehicles... Ultimately this innovative series will enhance the technology in our future electric vehicles and benefit our customers.”
