Panasonic joined the Jaguar Racing Formula E Team in 2016 as “Official Title Partner” in the frame of a multi-year partnership.
The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is a pioneering single-seater series and the world's first fully-electric motorsport series. With zero emissions and noise levels below those of conventional combustion powered race cars, Formula E cars can compete on purpose-built street circuits in the heart of major global cities. Formula E’s goals are to raise awareness and accelerate development of electric road cars, reduce global emissions, improve e-mobility and engage younger fans.
Both partners join the same vision: to collaborate, to learn, and to win. Working together at the forefront of technology towards an electric future. Formula E perfectly fits with Panasonic’s global vision of a better life and a better world. Already at the forefront of e-mobility, Panasonic is a supplier to many of the world’s biggest car manufacturers thanks to expertise that include innovative battery technology, inverters and on-board chargers. In addition, Panasonic’s portfolio also includes highly relevant next-generation technology including connectivity and infotainment. The close work with the race team and lessons learned on the track will help to push Panasonic Automotive’s efforts to develop innovative future technologies.
Panasonic is excited to be a part of the Panasonic Jaguar Racing Formula E Team. As a supplier to the world’s largest car manufacturers and through our portfolio of electrical automotive components, Panasonic is already a world-leader in e-mobility. We will build on this through Formula E. We are also world-renowned for our infotainment and connectivity technology which is just as relevant to next-generation mobility. Fast-tracking product development, reducing emissions and being more sustainable is crucial to us and Formula E is a perfect fit. We have no doubt that the series will revolutionize e-mobility – and we want to be the drivers of this change.
James Barclay, Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team Director said: “We are delighted to partner with a premium brand that has the profile and prestige of Panasonic. It is a world-leading electronics company with a first-class reputation for quality, integrity and innovation. By competing in Formula E and accelerating the development of critical technologies, Jaguar intends to be at the forefront of the electrification in the car industry.”
