Despite interest from other Formula  E teams, the 27-year-old New Zealander will remain with Jaguar, continuing a long-standing partnership that stretches back to when the team joined the all-electric championship in 2016.

It follows the news that Jaguar have committed to Formula E’s Gen3 era, an announcement which was made last month.

 “I’m not going anywhere!” said Evans. “Having spent over five years with the team, I know exactly what we plan to achieve in the forthcoming seasons and I am excited to continue to be a part of the team’s journey.

"I have been approached by other teams but my home continues to be with Jaguar. We are seeing strong results on track, the Jaguar I-TYPE 5 boasts excellent performance and we are ready to rival anyone on the grid.

“There is still everything to play for this season and going forward into the future with Jaguar Racing.”

Frontrunner Evans has won two races and claimed 10 podium finishes for Jaguar and currently sits eighth in the drivers’ championship heading into the final round of the season in Berlin.

Evans, who has scored four podiums for Jaguar so far this season, is just 20 points off current championship leader Nyck de Vries going into the Berlin double-header.

Meanwhile, Jaguar sits third in the teams’ standings, nine points behind leaders Envision Virgin Racing.

Jaguar Formula E team director James Barclay added: “We are very pleased to confirm that Mitch will remain a key part of Jaguar Racing’s driver line-up, extending his long-standing and integral role in the team.

“Mitch’s speed and on-track results in Formula E speak for themselves and we have continued to build a formidable partnership year on year since he joined our team in 2016. Mitch is one of the most exciting talents in Formula E and his experience and understanding of how we work is invaluable.

“We are stronger together and as a team we are all excited and highly motivated to achieve the most out of season seven and beyond."
