GKN Automotive Role and Technology

As Jaguar Racing’s official eDrive partner, we were involved in the development of the electric powertrain for the I-TYPE 5. Our software engineers will also be integrated into Jaguar Racing’s headquarters, providing extensive knowledge and preparing software developments for improved performance and functionality throughout the season

Jaguar Racing is using our expertise to develop advanced powertrain cooling technologies for both the inverter and electric motor in pursuit of enhanced system efficiencies. This will involve theoretical and practical evaluation of new cooling technologies to help the team make a performance step for future seasons.

The partnership with Jaguar Racing will also feed into the development of our world-leading eDrive technologies for electrified road vehicles.
