The new Jaguar car has been doing great as of lately, and it’s pretty much been that way since the company made its name in the 50s and the 60s, especially with cars such as the C and E-Type. However, there was a point in time when things weren’t looking good for the new jaguar car company, as it suffered from chronic under-investment in the mid-80s. Things did look good for a bit, at least under Ford’s ownership, but eventually cars such as the X-Type and the XJ were developed and a lot of people thought this was quite boring, and one of the reasons why the company started to run into some misfortune was because it started to rely on focus groups.
Eventually, Tata Motors bought Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford, and the parent company ended up doing something that many people had hoped for, and that was it invested heavily into Jaguar. One of the main focuses was lightweight aluminum, but so was technology. The C-X75 super-car may have never appeared in the showroom, but there was other exciting stuff being worked on, and one of those things was the remote-control via smartphones. The new jaguar car company did announce that it was going to make it back to the racetrack with a competing Formula E, and this will happen next season in Fall 2016, so you might want to keep an eye out for that.
The Jaguar will be partnering up with sister company to the Williams F1 team, Williams Advanced Engineering, and the two companies worked together on the C-X75. The batteries used by every single Formula E car are provided by Williams. Nick Rogers, the engineering director of Jaguar Land Rover’s engineering, said that the company’s future product portfolio will include electric vehicles, and the Formula E will give the company the chance to develop electrification technologies. Rogers continued to say that the Championship will allow them to test out their technologies under the same conditions.
Recently, there as some news that arose about the Trulli Formula E team, and that news was about them dropping out due to missing the season’s first two races. The addition of the new team is welcoming news in light of the other team missing out. Also, the Roborace support series for AL-controlled race cars will make their debut next season and that is another thing you will want to lookout for.
The first year the Formula new jaguar car E entered, the team ran with electric race cars, the Spark Renault SRT-01 cars, but this season it will be different, as the teams can use their own transmissions, inverters and motors, which means manufacturers that are looking to transfer technology to the street from the track will be able to do so. A good example of this is that the Monegasque team Venturi will be bringing along their own motor and this motor is the version that can be found in both its electric sports cars and in an electric land speed record car. As for BMW, the company has hinted that it may enter the series, once its batteries have been developed because they want to make sure the batteries will last the duration of the race.
For now, you can keep up with all of the action that this season will bring. Cars will be racing in Punta del Este really soon. Also, in April the cars will race at Long Beach, so you will want to check the new jaguar car out if you are in the United States.
