The announcement of the provisional season seven calendar is a historic day for Formula E as it takes the final steps towards World Championship status. The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will start in Santiago in January and everyone at Panasonic Jaguar Racing is looking forward to it. There are some amazing city centre locations on the calendar and it's great that we'll be racing on the streets of Seoul for the first time - which we sadly didn't get to do this year. To finish the season at home in London will be very special for Jaguar as the only British manufacturer on the grid. We are already working on our plans and car for season seven and what is set to be the closest and most competitive season of Formula E to date!

Notes to Editors
ABOUT PANASONIC JAGUAR RACING
Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In 2019 the team won the Rome E-Prix – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.
Formula E is a real world test bed for Jaguar to make fearless progress in the future of electrification.
As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Panasonic Jaguar Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter and rear suspension. To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.
This is the second year teams will be racing with the futuristic Generation 2 racecars. Teams have two racecars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance.
Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities.
