Jaguar has confirmed its new I-PACE eTROPHY car will make its public debut during a demonstration run over the Berlin Formula E race weekend ahead of its racing debut later this year.

Jaguar launched its new, all-electric I-PACE car back in March ahead of the start of the new support event for Formula E this autumn, with the series set to follow the single-seater championship around the globe through its fifth season.

Following a successful first shakedown and tyre test with the I-PACE car, Jaguar will complete its first running in public during a showrun on raceday in Berlin on May 19 at the Tempelhof Circuit. The driver completing the show run will be confirmed at a later date.

Jaguar also confirmed it would be working with British company M-Sport for its race operations, with the group having most recently worked with Ford in the FIA World Rally Championship.

"We are excited to reveal the new Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecar in Berlin and demonstrate its dynamic capabilities for the first time," Jaguar Formula E chief James Barclay said.

"The team at Jaguar Racing and Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) are building the key foundations for the incredibly exciting championship and we are pleased with the progress of our test and development programme, which has included a successful tyre test with our partner Michelin.

“We are really happy with the way the championship is progressing, and we are attracting more interest from teams around the world who want to be involved in this pioneering championship.

"We would also like to welcome M-Sport, who bring a wealth of experience, expertise and professionalism to the team as technical operations partner for the eTROPHY."
