Jaguar Vector Racing V20E

Williams Advanced Engineering supported a new maritime world record by Jaguar Vector Racing, using its award-winning knowledge of electrification gained from the highly competitive world of Formula E. 

Designed and constructed by Jaguar Vector in partnership with Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s Formula E technical partner Williams Advanced Engineering, the V20E electric boat featured electric power, motor and control systems that drew on Williams’ experience in supplying batteries to the entire Formula E grid for the past four seasons and its ongoing partnership with Jaguar Racing in the ABB FIA Formula E championship. 

In mid-2018 Jaguar Vector co-founder and technical director Peter Dredge piloted the V20E across two legs of the famous 1km course on Coniston Water, England, breaking the outright world and national electric speed records in a battery-powered boat with an average speed of 88.61mph beating the previous record from 2008 by nearly 16mph.
