Jaguar Racing tests Gen3 car

Jaguar Racing has completed its first dynamic testing session for the new Gen3 of Formula E car that will make its debut for the 2023 season. The session was completed by the team’s test driver, Sacha Fenestraz.


The team used the session to gather valuable data and information on the development car to inform and aid refinement of next season’s challenger.

The lighter, more powerful and efficient Gen3 car will set a new performance benchmark for an all-electric race car. The Gen3 Formula E car will see power increase to 350kW and reach a maximum speed of over 200mph.

The world’s most efficient race car will be capable of producing at least 40% of the energy used within a race from regenerative braking. As the first race car to feature both front and rear powertrains, 250kW regen is added to the front and 350kW regen added at the rear, more than doubling the regenerative capability of the current Formula E model. As a result, the Gen3 race car will be the first formula car not to feature rear hydraulic brakes.

“With 100kW of extra power, no rear hydraulic brakes, 600kW ultra-high-speed charging capabilities and a car that is lighter than Gen2, the team has a lot to come to terms with,” said Phil Charles, Jaguar Racing’s technical manager. “The test proved extremely valuable for the team and we will now go back to the factory to analyse the learnings and continue to develop the car. We’re all looking forward to seeing the development car progress as we look ahead to the next generation of Formula E.”
