The I-TYPE 2 is Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s all-electric Formula E race vehicle. Designed to deliver the ultimate balance of power and efficiency, it accelerates from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds and can regenerate up to 150kW of energy under braking to extend its range. Discover more about the vehicle’s components below


Throughout practice and qualifying sessions, maximum power is permitted. During races, however, power-saving mode will apply with the 'Push-to-Pass' system temporarily allowing maximum power for a limited period of 5 seconds.

The amount of energy that can be delivered to the Motor-Generator Unit (MGU) by the RESS is limited to 28 kw/h. This will be permanently monitored by the FIA.

Max Power (Limited):
200kW, equivalent to 270 hp

Race Mode (Power Saving):
170 kW, equivalent to 230bhp

Up to 200kW

0 - 100 km/h:
under 3s

Overall Length:
5,000mm (max)

Overall Width:
1,800mm (max)

Overall Height:
1,250 mm (max)

Max Speed:

Track Width:
1,300mm (min)

Ride Height
74 mm(max)

Minimum Weight (inc driver):
880 kg (min) - Batteries alone 320 kg


Jaguar Racing’s 200kW power unit is made up of a Motor Generator Unit (MGU) and a Motor Control Unit (MCU). The MCU efficiently converts DC current from the battery into high density AC current, allowing the MGU to propel the car to its maximum speed of 225km/h.


Essential to fast lap times is precision handling, especially on Formula E’s city centre race tracks. The I-TYPE 2 is equipped with pushrod operated double wishbone front suspension, with twin dampers and torsion bars. At the rear is a coilover suspension system with four way dampers. The ride height, dampers, camber, toe and anti- roll bars are all adjustable to optimise the set up for each track.


As much as possible, drivers will reduce speed on the approach to a corner using regenerative braking. However, additional stopping power is also needed for lower speed corners. Any unwanted speed is immediately scrubbed off by the I-TYPE 2’s carbon brakes, utilising two separate hydraulic systems to allow the driver to adjust the front to rear balance.


Providing optimum grip at racing speeds in both wet and dry conditions is a set of bespoke 18” treaded Michelin tires.

Max width - front 260 mm / rear 305 mm
Max diameter – front 650 mm / rear 690 mm


To turn instant torque from the power unit into instant acceleration, the I-TYPE 2 has a lightweight two gear Jaguar Racing Sequential Gearbox operated with a paddle shift. The gear ratios devised by Jaguar Racing provide the fastest, smoothest path from grid to top speed.


The Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) is a high-voltage, liquid-cooled battery that supplies energy to the Power Unit. Before the race, it is charged externally, but is also charged during the race via regenerative braking that can harvest as much as seven laps’ worth of energy during a race.


The expertise and innovation we develop for our Formula E race cars is coming to the road in the second half of 2018. The I‑PACE Concept is a preview of the first all-electric production vehicle from Jaguar – a 5-seater performance SUV that delivers 516 lb‑ft of instant torque, 400 HP and 0‑100km/h in around 4 seconds.3
