‘I am proud to announce jaguar’s return to racing with an entry into the innovative FIA formula E championship,’  engineering director for jaguar land rover, nick rogers. ‘electric vehicles will absolutely play a role in jaguar land rover’s future product portfolio and formula E will give us a unique opportunity to further our development of electrification technologies. the championship will enable us to engineer and test our advanced technologies under extreme performance conditions. it is my belief that over the next five years we will see more changes in the automotive world than in the last three decades. the future is about being more connected and more sustainable; electrification and lightweight technologies are becoming more important than ever as urbanisation continues to increase. formula E has recognised and reacted to these trends and the championship’s exciting and pioneering approach is the perfect fit for our brand.’
