After being entering the FIA Formula E Championship in 2016, Jaguar Racing is going a step further. Jaguar has announced the introduction of the world’s first production battery electric vehicle race series, which will take place in 10 cities around the world.
The I-Pace eTrophy all-electric series gives racers of the future a chance to showcase their talent, competing on the world stage in zero-emissions motorsport. The ten-race I-Pace eTrophy series will take place cities, like Hong Kong, Paris, Rome, New York and Sao Paolo. Each race will put 20 drivers behind the wheel of a modified I-Pace eTrophy.
Jaguar hasn’t announced what modifications the I-Pace race cars have received, but its pretty clear that it has a revised suspension, more aggressive exterior and a large rear wing.
The production version of the I-Pace is expected to start arriving in Europe by the end of 2017, but the United States will have to wait until 2018 to get Jaguar’s new electric car.
