Our commitment to electrification takes the next step and our participation in the exciting Formula E race championship continues. Read on and find out more about key events in Jaguar’s 2018 calendar.
Formula E Season 4
RACING INTO 2018
For the all-electric Panasonic Jaguar Racing team, it’s going to be a full-throttle year. After last year’s debut season, we’ll be fighting for the podium in all ten rounds of the street-based series. The season opener in Hong Kong started with a double-header race weekend on 2-3 December; next, the team heads to Marrakesh on 13 January. This season, first-time driver Nelson Piquet Jr. will be joining Mitch Evans who enjoyed an impressive final few races last year in Jaguar colours. They’ll both enjoy the benefit of an all-new powertrain; more than 200 new parts in the Jaguar I-TYPE 2 give it a more efficient package using high strength lightweight materials.

Ice Drive Academy Arjeplog, Sweden
ICE DRIVE ACADEMY
Places are still available for a unique driving experience in the Swedish Arctic Circle with the Ice Drive Academy. You’ll stay at the luxurious and characterful Hotel Silverhatten and learn to powerslide like a pro on ice tracks carved out of a frozen lake. It’s a masterclass in car control and showcases the balance and agility that’s part of the Jaguar DNA. Away from the cars, you can try Husky Rides, snowmobile safaris and a breathtaking Arctic Circle drive. Packages include the 3-night Ice Drive and 4-night Ice Drive Plus.

Jaguar I-PACE Concept
I-PACE COMPLETES WEST COAST ROAD TRIP
One year after showing the I-PACE Concept at the LA Auto Show, Jaguar returned to the West Coast for final validation tests - and took some lucky potential customers along for the ride. See what happened when Ann Voyer from Pasadena hitched a ride in the I-PACE from Sunset Boulevard LA to St Luis Obispo – completing 200 miles on one charge of its advanced Lithium-Ion battery. Watch the video here – and look out for further I-PACE updates throughout 2018.
Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017
GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED
Finally, make a date for 12-15 July – it’s the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Jaguar will once again be in the heart of the action. The Festival Celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2018 and as ever the organisers will have some very special guests and vehicles to wow the crowds. If you visited Jaguar last year, you’ll recall our Jaguar XE Project 8 thundered up the famous Goodwood hill climb – and if not, click here to relive the excitement.
