    Jaguar Land Rover Motorsport Managing Director James Barclay said that the company considers it an honor to supply Envision Racing with their Jaguar Formula E Gen3 engine, saying that the team is one of the most competitive groups in the race series.

    “We look forward to working and achieving further successes together in the future. We have a huge amount of respect for Sylvain and all of the Envision Racing team — they are an ideal customer team for Jaguar,” he said.

    “Envision Racing will be able to optimize their own performance so we remain rivals on track. We race to innovate together and I’m excited to see four Jaguar powered Formula E race cars line up on the grid alongside each other next season,” Barclay added. 

    On the other hand, Envision Racing Managing Director and Chief Technical Officer Sylvain Filippi noted that “Jaguar has been one of their fiercest competitors in Formula E since the company joined in 2016.

    “The team’s advanced powertrain technology and overall commitment to its Formula E program made them the most attractive option to us. Formula E is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, inspiring and exciting the next generation of motorsport fans in cities across the globe. But more exciting is the fact it is arguably the most collaborative sport in the world because we recognize the role that we can play in solving one of the biggest problems of our time in the race against climate change.”
