The Generation 2 lithium-ion battery (848 lbs, 52 kW) is housed in a carbon fiber safety cell. The battery has the usable energy of 5,000 fully charged mobile phones. The Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) is charged prior to the race and the regeneration braking converts energy back into the battery during the race.
The Jaguar Racing Motor Generator Unit (MGU) is based on the team's learnings from season 6 with the Gen 2 car. During development and testing the team focused on making the MGU lighter and more efficient to further improve the overall performance of the I-TYPE.
The bespoke Silicone Carbide module I-TYPE inverter is developed by Jaguar Racing. The inverter takes the direct current (DC) stored in the battery pack and turns it into the alternating current (AC) that feeds the motor and gives us the power to use. The state-of-the-art invertor also features 24 carat gold due to its highly conductive properties.
The new, extreme look isn't purely for aesthetics. The I-TYPE 5 has been specifically designed to increase the down force, courtesy of its large diffuser, to offer superior grip even when closely following another car. Another prominent feature is the new FIA Halo head protection device, with its innovative LED light strip. When the lighting on the Halo glows blue, the car and driver are in Attack Mode. The Halo glows magenta when the driver has activated FanBoost, allowing fans to easily follow the strategy of their favorite team or driver.
