Jaguar has retained its similar black and turquoise livery with TCS’ logo featuring heavily as the team will be now be known as Jaguar TCS Racing with immediate effect.

Sam Bird and Mitch Evans will once again spear Jaguar’s charge in the all-electric series as the duo look to build on a strong season seven where it finished second in the teams’ championship behind Mercedes.

Evans was in title contention going into the final race of the season in Berlin but stalled on the grid and was later hit by the Venturi of Edoardo Mortara.

The Kiwi went on to finish fourth in the championship, just nine points behind champion Nyck de Vries.

Sam Bird led the standings after the second New York City e-Prix but three retirements in the final four races left him sixth overall.

As the team goes in search of championship glory in season eight - the final Gen2 season - Jaguar revealed that it has made “revisions in several software areas to improve energy management, making the race car faster and more efficient. The team have also invested time in understanding and simulating the new qualifying system and practising in-garage pitstops, which will become a significant feature of the first 10 minutes of the new format.”

Speaking of the launch, team boss James Barclay said: “Launch day is always exciting as we look forward to the possibilities of the upcoming season after months of hard work behind the scenes. Welcoming a brand-new title partner – Tata Consultancy Services – is a real honour and we look forward to a highly innovative and successful partnership together. It’s an announcement we’ve been looking forward to revealing and is an exciting time to see a global leader like Tata Consultancy Services joining other blue-chip brands in FIA Formula E. After our most successful season to date we have been working hard to improve further on our performance with the aim to race for more points, wins and ultimately the world championship.

"I’m also incredibly proud to be appointed as Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Motorsport and Team Principal, Jaguar TCS Racing Formula E Team as a result of the newly launched motorsport division. During the off-season, we’ve introduced a new Motorsport Executive Committee dedicated to maximising the opportunities of our motorsport activity including technology transfer from race to road. It is very special to be an integral part of reimagining Jaguar’s all-electric future.”
