Next-generation Formula E cars are here, and one of the first to be unveiled is Jaguar’s I-TYPE 3, which is 25% more powerful than its predecessor. The new powertrain generates up to 250 kW, or roughly 330 hp, and has in excess of 800 new parts compared to the outgoing model, good for a 0-62MPH time of 2.8 seconds.

You’ll see the new i-Type in action when the next season starts on December 15th in Saudi Arabia,” according to Engadget.
